Carlton Espresso @ Lygon Street

It may look like a very ordinary muffin, in fact you could say it is a rustic version of the fame McDonalds bacon and egg muffin. Heck i reckon i can make this on my own too.

However, there is something about the bread here, freshly baked, still warm that does the trick for me. Finding myself at Lygon Street, after seeing a house on Sunday morning, we had breakfast at Carlton Espresso, a latte on one hand and the gourmet muffin on the other, ensuring theres plenty of energy to burn for the remainder of the cold winter days. A good place for a quick bite in the morning, if you find yourself in this side of town or if you need a cup of coffee.

Seriously though, to find good coffee in Melbourne is as easy as finding a mamak in KL (not a good mamak, mind you)

By the way, that is not any ordinary bacon, its italian and its called pancetta and everything else in the place spells and remind you of italian, even the waiting staff and their heavy accent.
