Seddon's new pride and joy
From the powerhouse that brought you Deadman Espresso, Sunkland, aka Luke Mutton and Kylie Mackinlay, comes Common Galaxia, a new breed of cafe that’s set to take over the west. Incorporating quality food from local producers, outstanding coffee from Melbourne’s fine roasters, and unique design from Sunkland & assisted by LifeSpanJourney and Illogical Study, this is a cafe experience.
Chef Bec Kaye has put together a menu that is part sandwich bar and part cafe fare. But don’t expect your average sanga. Instead you’ll find a superb selection of smorrebrod, a Danish open sandwich. “Why cover up a beautiful sandwich with a piece of bread on top?” Luke says, and having sampled the roast pork smorrebrod with apple, braised cabbage, onion and fennel jam and pork scratching, we couldn’t agree more.
Then there’s the coffee. Head Barista Jackson Duxbury will meet your coffee needs with a Seven Seeds House Blend, Market Lane guest single origin or Proud Mary filter, all handpicked with you, the consumer in mind.
The fit out, taking its inspiration from Bauhaus design, is warm and welcoming and the right amount of quirky. Cutlery and menus can be found from hidden compartments either under the tables or from pouches on the side, and floor to ceiling window frontage allows for complimentary natural lighting. There’s an aerodynamic feel about it too, a clean finish with light timber and minimal fuss. But most importantly, this is a local cafe and, when we were there, was the perfect mix of new mums, suits, fellow coffee enthusiasts and locals. We’re officially fans!
