Lankan Tucker is a lovely local gem on Albion Street located in the heart of Brunswick West, where the service is outstanding, the coffee hits the spot and the food is absolutely scrumptious.
This family friendly cafe is run by the talented duo Hiran and Nerissa, who pride themselves on delivering a memorable modern twist on your traditional Sri Lankan breakfast, lunch and dinner experience. Taking inspiration from Melbourne’s very own leading brunch culture, they have managed to create a delicious range of dishes on their menu that is full of flavour, generous in portion size and will not disappoint.
At Lankan Tucker, they understand how much Melburnians love great coffee, so to ensure that they also satisfy coffee lovers, Lankan Tucker sources their beans from the highly regarded St. Ali Coffee Roasters.
