“High on the hill overlooking the city is this hidden little gem, a cultural melting pot for Northcote’s artists, poets and politically passionate residents…There are savoury and sweet crepes to delight your taste buds, and a simple selection of beer, wine and spirits to quench your thirst should some spirited gypsy dancing take your fancy.”
