Mario’s Coffee House

 

THE VIBE

A modern northern Italian-style espresso bar in a heritage-listed building.

THE DECOR

The bright interior houses all kinds of coffee paraphernalia. Coffee machines from the humble beginnings of founder Mario Bendoricchio’s coffee journey are mounted on the walls.

THE CROWD

The place Ivanhoe locals go to for their morning coffee run or that 3pm caffeine pick-me-up.

THE FOOD

The Italian-style menu covers arancini, calzone and dessert pizzas. Don’t miss the pumpkin, rocket and fior di latte pizza.

THE DRINK

Mario’s special blend was established in 1981 and is sourced from eight of the world’s premium growing regions. It’s 100 per cent Fairtrade. Also non-coffee options.

THE VERDICT

I’ve never been to Italy but I think I’ve found a slice of it in Ivanhoe.
