MELBOURNE | With chic urban design, high ceilings and beautiful greenery, Au79 takes your breath away as soon as you enter the space. It’s the biggest café in Melbourne, with three separate dining areas seating over 200 people. Au79 is the symbol and atomic number for gold. We can see why this was chosen as the name – the space feels very luxurious, with Italian furnishings, marble finishes and fiddle-fig trees throughout.

The space marries the passion of Italy’s espresso culture with the laid back cafe culture of Australia. Each seating area has a different vibe, with the front encompassing a communal table and private booths, and the back full of natural light, greenery and plenty of seating. Along with regular cafe service, the large space means that Au79 can caters for events such as weddings and other functions.

The seasonal menu has a broad range of signature dishes as well as an elevated take on classics like the big breakfast and avocado on toast. It’s available all day and caters for vegetarians, vegans and those who can’t eat gluten. Bread is baked in house, and you can smell it as you enter the cafe. Coffee is also roasted in house and there’s a wide selection of beans and brew types to choose from. And if you need bread or coffee beans to take home, you can.

There is Asian influence across much of the menu and it was these dishes which interested us most. To start we sampled the soba noodle salad with chicken. The salad is crisp with a little spice hit, and flavour packed with edamame, chilli, coriander, snow pea shoots, cucumber, garlic shoots, celery, spring onions crispy shallots and soy dressing. The soft shell crab burger, one of Au79’s signature dishes, is made with deep-fried soft-shell crab, Thai slaw, Thai dressing, sweet chilli mayonnaise, served inside a charcoal bun with French fries on the side.

For those with a sweet tooth, there are several delectable sweet treats to choose from – the perfect way to finish your Au79 experience.

Au79 is a place you can enjoy without feeling rushed. We enjoyed the beautiful space so much that we didn’t want to leave once our meal was done. It’s unique in Melbourne’s cafe scene and one of our must visit cafe destinations.
