Preston has been on the cusp of foodie cool for a while now - helped along by solid neighbourhood players like Stray Neighbour, UAE, Boundary Espresso and the meat-tastic Dexter.
On her trips back to Aus from her adopted home in New York City, Preston-born Adriana Agricola noticed the culinary shift and eventually made good on her father Joseph's suggestion to create a business out of the family's history-filled old Plenty Road commercial property.
From the mid 60s through until the 1980s, the space was home to Joseph and Carmela Agricola's commercial dressmaking workshop, and has now found new life as a stylish daytime cafe where, in true New York style, anytime is a good time to drink cocktails.
I wrote about recently it for Good Food.
