great coffee and a yummy muffin for $5, served on vintage plates and saucers at harvest –

When you think about it, very often when you go out in Melbourne it is a second hand experience.  For example, on Wednesday I had coffee with my friend Bettina at Harvest in Station Street, Fairfield (the old Organic Gertrude) and took note (and a photo or two) of their easy-going second hand style.

Some lovely saucers for the latte and flat white, interesting side plates for the muffins, eclectic cushions on the bench seats.

And outside, a great collection of chairs!   Second hand is the new black … well, it is pretty fun and EVERYWHERE.
