Hidden behind an old brick warehouse which was once home to the Adelphia recording studio for over 20 years – hosting the likes of John Farnham, Tina Arena to Gotye (one of our favourite tunes is his!!) lies Faraday’s Cage.


The husband and wife duo John and Kim Petrou are behind Faraday’s Cage, opening nearly three years ago this team have created something very special.


John an ex-dentist and engineer always had a passion for baking having a long history with sourdough culture fermenting. This duo certainly has shone a light in Fitzroy with their mind-blowing freshly baked sourdough; crusty croissants treats a dentist would not approve of…


Then we go on to the menu – created by the incredible Elaine Ch’ng who was previously cooking up a storm as a chef at Top Paddock and Mateo’s.


As you would imagine, this team are only using the best in local and seasonal produce serving up all day breakfast and lunch with a D.I.Y breakfast option for those of us who always order the big breakfast or just simply trying to be healthy. You won’t know where to begin!


If you have a sweet tooth, you won’t be able to pass the ‘Raspberry Ricotta Hotcakes’ organic maple syrup, fresh seasonal fruit, honeycomb crumble, pistachios, dried raspberries and cream.


For all the savoury lovers out there, you can’t go past Faraday’s Cage ‘Eggs Benedict’ 12 hour pulled pork should, poached eggs, pickled chilli, chipotle hollandaise, bacon crumb on their famous sourdough toast. Seriously mouth-watering!


Our favourite ‘Can’t Decide? Breakfast Board’ what more can you want!! You get a taste of all the favourites. Smashed avocado, beetroot hummus, poached eggs, sourdough toast plus granola, croissant and a house made cold pressed orange juice.


It doesn’t end there with their endless list of healthy smoothies and turmeric lattes and teas. Faraday’s Cage serves up one of the best in Melbourne coffee roasters ‘Dukes’ so you know your morning coffee will be flawless.


Faraday’s Cage is the perfect spot for your morning breakfast. With a large covered and heated courtyard out back also makes this the perfect spot for you and your furry mates.
