Little Collins

A little wave of Australian cafe culture is invading Manhattan. Little Collins, the namesake of a street in Melbourne, Australia, definitely gives off that carefree Aussie cafe vibe.  

The cafe boasts the first Modbar espresso machine in the city. I don't know much about espresso machines, but these steamlined chrome modules set on top of the white counter do look gorgeous!

Aside from the typical coffee offerings, the cafe also offers toasts and sandwiches, including Australian classics, avocado smash and Vegemite on toast.

The avocado smash was delicious!  Extra points for piling on a generous portion of the avocado spread….unlike Bluestone Lane Coffee, another Aussie cafe a few blocks south of Little Collins, which doles out pathetic portions of the spread. 

 My Brekkie: The smash with Cappuccino

Verdict: AA.  This is a great place to grab a good cup of coffee and a quick brekkie before heading off to work. A very welcomed addition to Midtown. Highly recommend!
