The Verdict

The new kids on the block call themselves mischievous dreamers, and we can definitely tell why. 

Meet Tinker, Northcote's fresh new brunch spot leading us into a summer full of great food and excellent coffee. The team behind Tinker are definitely not amateurs to the cafe game, with Legacy, Penta, and Temperance Society forming the suite of venues already under their belt. 

The venue branding and identity is by design gurus Pop and Pac, who have worked on masterpieces like the multi-storey Higher Ground. The Melbourne studio have provided the space with cool greys, and hues of teal and bronze to give a super sleek finish. 

Amongst the impressive interior lies the true marvel of this new cafe: the food. With every dish pretty as a picture, Tinker offers up the classics like smashed avo with grilled haloumi, but also plates up something a bit more special, like mango and saffron panna cotta.

With Tinker only just open, be sure to get here quickly before the cues get longer and you get hungrier.
