If you ever come over to South Melbourne, be sure to try out Dead Man Espresso. Love the relaxing environment and friendly service. There’s also outdoor seating if you want to enjoy the sun on a lovely afternoon.
I went there with a friend last time on a weekday so it was not too crowded, perfect for a catch up lunch.
We started our meal with a couple of coffees; Piccolo latte and a flat white.
I’ve heard many great reviews on Dead Man’s coffees, but it was only okay for me this time. Nothing bad but nothing like the raves on Urbanspoon. HOWEVER, the pork belly sandwich with pesto and apple slaw was truly amazing!!!!
I fell in love with it at once! Just look at that picture! The toast was crispy and the pork melted in my mouth! NOMNOMNOM! The apple slaw went well with the sandwich, ‘diluting’ the flavour of the pork. My friend was also happily munching on her salmon dish opposite me.
Definitely visiting again soon for the pork belly and giving their coffee another try. Keep in mind that their kitchen closes by 3pm so no late afternoon munchies!
