I’d never been to Niddrie before, but Mister Hoffman Cafe gave me a reason to visit this western suburb.
Named after the street it’s located on, Mister Hoffman is beautifully designed by Joanne Motee, who has been shortlisted for the 2016 Australian Interior design awards. There’s a cosy outdoor courtyard, and inside is fresh, with lots of natural light, and pastel tones. The fit out cleverly blends a modern crispness, with a classic ambiance that cultivates comfort. Custom Volker Haug pendant lights hang from the ceiling, which are characterised by simple angles with refined materials like polished brass, to create a minimal feel, adding to the modern interior. The Wallpaper art adds further colour to the room, and the neon lit ‘ Mr Hoffman’ logo is mounted on the wall behind the front counter, reminding use that the postcode in Niddrie is 3042.
Coffee is extracted on a La Marzocco FB80, and their house blend was bold, with dark chocolate notes.
The menu is Modern Australian, with a European influence. All day options include Smashed avo with porcini and button mushroom cream; corn , zucchini, and quinoa fritters with smoked salmon; Toasted Reuben with convent bakery dark rye; Aglio and olio spaghetti (garlic and olive oil); and the Pulled Lamb Burger with 12 hour cooked lamb, house pickled puree cabbage; and salsa verde
