Higher Ground review image

Higher Ground


650 Little Bourke St, Melbourne
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

In a city that seems to prefer tiny cafes down hard-to-find laneways, Higher Ground isn’t afraid to go big. The double-story cafe/restaurant hybrid is open all day and in a rarity for Melbourne cafes, won’t mind if you open up your laptop and do some work. The menu goes way beyond the usual avocado toast (although there is still one of those) with things like steamed fish and a minced lamb “fry up” during the day and graduates to serious things like pork shoulder at night.
