Red Door Corner Store

70 Mitchell St, Northcote VIC 3070, Australia

Editor's Review

As the name suggests, the distinct red door with some vintage signage on the corner helps identify it, maintaining the classic Herald Sun and Pura Milk features on the facade. Everything it serves is specialty grade.

The former Milkbar (corner store), is very welcoming and homely with a backyard converted courtyard reminiscent of a European garden with its turf, tables and lighting. Just like you would trust, homemade means extra care and quality has been put into produce. All baking here is done in house from whole and organic ingredients; they are committed to producing local, traceable and sustainable products. Extending to coffee, Market Lane is used for milky based drinks and Dukes for single origin blacks and filter coffee, quality transcends through the whole place with knowledgeable staff.  

The renovations have really opened up the place, giving a great ambience and creating an aesthetically pleasing interior, allowing more light to flood through. It's a really great setup, with the quirky utensil art and pot plant feature wall add to the feel. With Market Lane and Dukes extracting from the machines, some remarkable coffee awaits your arrival. Walk on in, not by.
