Rise and shine! What will be the most comforting thing that can ever happen in the morning? BINGO! It's a pleasant breakkie/brunch with your loved ones at a nicely decorated cafe! Sometimes, breakfast and solitude can be a great combination too. A satisfying breakfast can invigorate us and start off a day with positivity. That's why I always love breakfast/brunch spots.
There are so many breakfast cafe sprouting out in Australia. How can we find a special yet cozy spot for our brunch? Don't worry! In this blog post, I am going to bring YOU to Adelaide and Melbourne for these two cafe which have the same concept. They are MART 130 (Melbourne) and LOOSE CABOOSE CAFE (Adelaide). Both of the cafe are situated by the tram/train stop, a completely overlooked idea in starting a new cafe. Come on! Developing and reconstructing a dilapidated tram stop is an effortful job. Who is going to have breakfast with the 'gong' sound of tram and the traffic of passengers going up and down the tram?
Well! That's the idea which rang the bell with far-sighted cafe manager who founded Mart 130 cafe. Mart 130 is situated in tram stop 30 at Middle Park, Melbourne. The interesting thing about the name is that 'MART' is actually the reflection image of 'TRAM'. How smart are they! I always wanted to go to this popular breakfast spot and finally I got a chance last Feb. To get to the cefe, all you need to do is to hop on Tram 96 towards St Kilda and hop down at stop 130.

The waiting staffs at Mart 130 are friendly and they always ensure their customers have a good meal. Conversation with customers is essential to them to ensure their customers have the best dining experience. However, the cafe does not accept EFTPOS, so remember to bring enough cash for your breakkie.
Sipping a cup of coffee, flipping through the newspaper, chatting with each other, getting a taste at breakfast; Mhmmm. Life is good! Even the dog was lazing around under the warm sun and enjoying this piece of peace.

The end of the blog post? No! You can't miss out on Loose Caboose Cafe in Adelaide! It is a relevantly new cafe founded in 2012 at Bowden train station. The difference between this cafe and Mart 130 is that it is a train station instead of a tram stop. This gem is just across the road from the Entertainment Centre.
I stumbled across this place through my friend's album. Being intrigued by its similarity to Mart 130, I decided to make a visit with my friend, Hannah last November.
