Northcote Bars and a Vegan Cafe in Fitzroy

thumbnail_IMG_3967Ask the locals that know Melbourne and they will tell you that Northcote is the hipster patch around 6 kilometres north east of the city centre, and home to cafes, bars and boutiques. It’s also a part of town we’ve visited often with so many choices of places to go for great food and casual friendly bars for an after dinner drink.

High Street in Northcote is where it’s all happening and on our latest visit to Melbourne we visited a couple of bars including an old favourite and a new cosy spot.

Gourmet Food When ‘Roughing It’

The joys of caravanning with friends are many and in the case of meals and happy hour treats the bar seems to get raised higher and higher when we dine together.
