St Ali’s Outpost, in South Yarra, should be good. The coffee is nice, the food is good, but… The service would be bad for Canberra. For Melbourne, it was almost enough to make me wonder if this is a new variation on hipster cafe snobbery. Be obnoxious enough to your customers that they stand up and walk out before you actually have to give them their meals.
I kid, but only a little. The atrocious service seemed to be incompetent rather than malicious. Terribly disappointing, as I wanted to like the place.
