Ah, the signature Australian café. Full of healthiness, good coffee, and delicious food that you’d never expect to be as nutritious as it is delectable. Over the past few years, a flood of Aussie eating establishments have moved to the United States and shared their creative and vibrant cuisine with us. So much so that according to Eater, New York City has at least 31 different Aussie-owned shops. What can we say? We’re a popular bunch. If you look at any Aussie menu, you’ll find extraordinary ingredients both savory and sweet, complex and flavorful dishes, and the classic avocado toast. Our coffee game is super memorable as well—Australians have introduced you to the revolutionary flat white and their matcha latte is uncomparable.
