The Kettle Black
The Kettle Black One of Melbourne’s most sophisticated food and beverage hotspots, The Kettle Black, sits somewhere between cafe and restaurant, almost creating its own new genre of venue. Old and new styles merge seamlessly on the outside while the interior palette has been carefully curated with warm finishes of soft oak timbers and polished concrete, offset by the punch of the mischievous green furniture and marble tiles. The energetic, dynamic and elegant space is the winner of various awards including Best Cafe Design, Best New Cafe, Best Restaurant and Best Cafe. A Darling Group venue.

“One of the best cafes around Melbourne. Coffees were perfect – haven’t had such a good one in ages. Lots of food options – most of them were creative combinations, and tastes as good as it looks. Had the chicken burger – it was juicy with a good combination of slaw on it. Partner had the beef burger and they use actual beef pieces as opposed to mincing patty. Service was excellent too. Highly recommended to try!”- Isabelle Tran
