Chocolate at Pellegrini’s

Pellegrini’s is a popular place and it is highly rated on It is also mentioned in the Age Good cafe guide.
This place is about two minutes walk from Parliament station. I have been past this place a few times on my way to Bundoora campus. It was a cold rainy day when I visited. I felt like hot chocolate and didn’t have much money to buy the other stuff.
The interior was dark and retro. The cafe was really quiet for a place which is ranked number 18 on Urbanspoon.
That’s weird that they don’t have a menu. I tried to ask the guy that served me but he said no. I didn’t know how much the cakes were and they only had limited food on display. So I just ordered a hot chocolate which was a bit meh for $3. It was thick, but not as foamy as I liked it. It also had no cafe art to it. I love a bit of cafe art on my coffees.
The guy did seem a little creepy. I think he wanted to get rid of me.

$6 deal at tutti in piazza @melbourne central

I had the $6 deal today at Tutti in piazza. The ethos is fresh food and friendly staff, to which I got neither. This place is is situated in the dining hall and is not worth going there. To start off with the owner was unfriendly and rude. He didn’t let me take any pictures of the food. I can see why when I tasted the food. The omelette focacchia ($4) was so bland and cold. The hot chocolate ($2) was alright.
I will not go back there again. I recommend you try Cafe vita or Ensalada next door.
