Fledgling Espresso is a great find in Carlton North.  This family friendly cafe located in the heart of Rathdowne Street is owned by the very talented Conner Cunliffe.  At the young age of 23, Conner loves sharing his passion for hospitality through Fledgling Espresso and has managed to create a lovely local hub that combines great food, specialty coffee via Inglewood Coffee Roasters and a cosy space to kick back and relax.

At Fledgling Espresso you will find that everything is made fresh to order using fresh locally sourced produce.  Their seasonal menu offers such a great variety of dishes that are very satisfying on the palate for both the adults and the little ones.  Whether you’re looking for healthy eats, the classics or something a little more indulgent, you’ll definitely find it on the menu at Fledging Espresso.

Here are just a handful of our top favourites from Fledging Espresso:

  • The Granola Bowl topped with mixed nuts, seeds, acai yoghurt, peanut butter & fresh fruit
  • The Smashed Avocado with heirloom tomatoes, toasted seeds, lemon & Meredith feta on sourdough (definitely worth getting a poached egg as an added extra)
  • The Banana French Toast made with in house banana bread, berry compote, pistachio praline, salted caramel & cinnamon mascarpone
  • The Eggs Benny with hollandaise, your choice of pulled pork or smoked salmon on an English muffin
