My favourite place for a great breakfast is
The Little Ox.
The Melbourne Cafe Culture is alive and buzzing. Buzzing half from the hustle and bustle of patrons and from the delicious barrister coffee served fresh daily. I enjoy a great coffee and finding one that is suitable to your tastes is hard to find.
As Bayside local, we are spoiled with the range of cafes and restaurants that it has to offer. I have trekked through Church St and Hampton St looking for something special. It was on the cusp of Brighton and Elwood that I have discovered The Little Ox.
The Little Ox is located on New Street in Brighton. Its corner residence and frontage faces both a cosy side street and the thoroughfare of New Street commuters. Seated behind wooden seats, are the first of the cafe’s patrons. This is where you will find dogs and cyclists enjoying Sunday breakfast.
The atmosphere is always welcoming. With the staff bustling around table to table, greeting customers like they have known them forever. Walking through the doors, thrusts you into the deep aromas of a rich Italian coffee, with the barristers serving customers in the cafe and from the window on the street.
Finding a seat during the peak periods is almost the hardest part. My only saving grace is the frequency of my visits; this means that the staff are always able to find you somewhere to sit whilst a better option arises.
The cafe inside, has a homely feel. With a giant butterfly painting on the wall and cooking books lining the outside of the room. The kitchen is visible and so are the freshly cooked cakes and pasties. I always try to get the seat on the window side, as with cushioned seating you get to view the whole restaurant.
Approaching your table will be some of the most friendly of staff. Their vibrate personalities enable the cafe to be filled with laughter and positive energy. From the signage of petitions to mini competitions they are always full of energy and ready to accommodate.
Ordering from the menu is made easy with the small menu filled with incredible dishes. It doesn’t matter what you order, you know you are going to get something worth coming back for. From their delicious potato rosti, to their homemade baked beans or the chicken quinoa salad, there is something for everyone.
The only downfall of The Little Ox is the noise level inside. It is sometimes difficult to hear your company talk whilst on lunch. And this is an indication of its popularity.
I love The Little Ox and I hope it loves me.

Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon everyday.
It will always be useful to read articles from
other authors and use something from other web sites.

Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if
blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding
skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
