Breakfast Club Diaries Part 2 - The (un)Common Galaxia

Located in the lovely suburb of Seddon, the first thing I noticed in this cafe was the wonderful centerpiece in the middle of the large dining table. I loved it! It was like a mini-rainforest in a giant fish bowl (yes, I do have a way with words... poetry some would call it..).

Common Galaxia is the name of a unique fish that lives in the Maribyrnong River, near where this cafe is. I thought it slightly odd that the cafe also serves a dish containing said fish.. It felt almost cannibalistic... But that's just me, and that is the only thing I found odd about the place. Everything else was quite lovely and hipster-y.

This venue had been chosen by EP, who didn't end up attending the meeting due to other (obviously more important) commitments. Tsk tsk. But since the food was so yummy, we forgave him and moved on with our lives. At this point, I am not going to even try to wax lyrical about the food and instead (as I usually do when hard-pressed for time) let the pictures do the talking.
