MELBOURNE | A riddle to go with your coffee – what do you get when you combine an old dress shop, a family affair, and Preston’s love for a morning mimosa? Sartoria. The equation adds up; I promise. Adriana Agricola’s mother owned a dressmaking, bridal and evening wear business for twenty years, just a block off High Street. Fast-forward 40 years and Adriana is returning from a 15-year stint in New York City. Preston’s brunch scene is blossoming and Adriana has the hospitality experience to back it. Old dress shop no more, the same space is now pumping out matcha lattes and wagyu cheeseburgers.

However, the essence of its original operation hasn’t been lost. You’ll find a communal table with blueprints for dresses, buttons and brooches in jars, thread on the walls, and busts displaying wedding gowns. Even Adriana’s mother’s original sewing machine is in the corner.

The menu receives inspiration from both the family business and Adriana’s time spent in NYC. The Seamstress, a house made waffle hash brown with two poached eggs, beetroot, goats cheese and a snow pea purée, is a neighborhood favorite along with The Dressmaker, a bread and butter pudding served with salted caramel ice cream and black sesame praline. The Big Apple shines through with The New York Brunch, a 5 & Dime bagel with smoked salmon, crispy eggs, kale chips, avocado, smoked tomato relish and citrus cream.

The witty names don’t end there. On the lunch menu you’ll find dishes such as The Spindle, a bountiful super salad, along with The Finisher, a chicken burger with buttermilk ranch, jalapeños, baby cos, tomato, cheese and activated charcoal bun. Gluten free bread is by Black Ruby and a handful of dishes can be modified for vegans.

Coffee is by Where’s Marcel?, batch brew or espresso. The red velvet hot chocolate made with house pressed beetroot juice jumps out at us, along with turmeric and matcha lattes. And since there are vegetables in the hot chocolate, don’t be afraid to indulge in an espresso martini or Aperol spritz.

If keeping it in the family means we can nibble on avocado and haloumi while sipping mimosas, all amongst sewing machines, we’re not arguing.

Originally a native of Denver, Colorado, Sarah decided to pack up her backpack after university graduation and see how long she could live off of peanut butter sandwiches and cheap hostels. After exploring the streets of New Zealand and Iceland, she’s settled down in Melbourne in the hope of establishing a more sophisticated life. One way of getting there is pursuing her love of writing along with delving into the best of Melbourne’s food, bar, and music scene. When she’s not writing, chances are you’ll find her wandering the streets in her Birkenstocks, hunting for the ideal book-reading-cafe or live music venue. A vegetarian herself, she is particularly fond of all foods covered in nut butter, towering plates of vegetables, and [large] glasses of Pinot Noir.
