The Proprietor

On route back to Melbourne, we called in to Albury for a break. It was here I found The Proprietor; which sits gracefully on the corner of a main street. It’s housed in one of the oldest buildings in this regional city north of the Murray River. What once was a saddler, is now a stylish café serving Padre coffee. The venue has preserved a slice of history, with its black and white checked floor tiles, art deco light shades, and original post office boxes set into the main counter.

Coffee is extracted via a Slayer espresso machine, and I usually don’t opt for Indonesian beans, but the barista said this was a rather special lot. What the heck, I thought, and opted for a short black. Im so grateful I took her word for it. This washed peaberry from South Sulawesi was incredible. It tasted like toffee, and had the richest of bodies.

Also had a feed, and I was tossing up between the Grilled Haloumi & Dukkah eggs, Banana and Salted Butterscotch waffles; and grilled prawn & avocado salad. I can’t knock back prawns; and glad I didn’t. Beautiful food, exquisite coffee, and an ideal pit stop to refuel before heading home.
