214 Union Road, Ascot Vale

This once pet shop in the heart of Union Road, Ascot Vale has been transformed into a modern, healthy café by Diana & Domenic Caruso, the couple behind the well known St. Rose in Essendon.


This is their third café which was driven by lack of healthy food, incredible coffee in the area, and a place to enjoy with their young family. So, they fixed it, quality local produce, 5 Senses coffee and a seasonal menu!


No.19 pays homage to St. Rose and their family in many ways. St. Rose’s address is 19 Rose Street, Diana & Domenic second son’s birthday is the 19th… and if that wasn’t enough it is also the day the couple first met!

The mind blowing menu offers options to vegans and food intolerances. Don’t worry, if you have a naughty sweet tooth these guys have you covered!


We suggest the

Pea fritters; pan fried flaked salmon, poached egg, walnut pesto, pickled chilli, zucchini, mint

Cleanse bowl; roasted baby beets, burnt carrots, chipotle Conga potatoes, broccoli, avocado vegan feta smash, snow pea tendrils, toasted seeds

Chocolate Coyo panna cotta; wild granola, grapefruit, raspberry gel

Cherry Ripe pancakes; stewed cherries, coconut, choc cherry fudge ice cream, dark choc mascarpone, macaroon, cherry ripe soil


Make sure you pay close attention to the interiors – No.19 have teamed up with Biasol Design Studio to create the interiors. Biasol has won international design awards for previous designs such as Kitty Burns.
