On the corner of Station street and Raglan street in Port Melbourne sits a busy little cafe with a laid back attitude. Frequented by locals grabbing a coffee on their way to work, men and women meeting up on their lunch breaks or those just out for a stroll with their dogs; Station street Trading Co is clearly a favourite amongst Port Melburnians. I must admit I came across this gem when I got a little lost in the local streets while house hunting, finding myself in dire need of a coffee and something to eat. Lucky for me this cafe across from the tram tracks and overlooking a park had everything I was looking for and more.
What has kept me coming back has been their ‘Cajun chicken, with chipotle aioli roasted bell peppers’ which is nestled between two slices of the softest gourmet bread (I have an inclining it might be sourdough but I can’t be sure). I am a self proclaimed sandwich avoider (my mother was forced to keep my school lunch boxes SW free) but this meal has me converted.
Apart from a selection of tasty gourmet SW (pictured above) they provide breakfast all day which include the essential sweet corn and herb fritters with poached egg.
