Gypsy Hideout is tucked on the High St row of shops in Westgarth Village, in fact it’s one of those place I had simply never noticed before. A bright, cheery little cafe with a nice outdoor space and parasols for a sunny day this place is a great find in this brunch prolific area.
I met Bean and Dino here one Sunday morning before we headed up the road to Northcote Town hall and Take 2 Markets. I arrived first so ordered a “Gypsy Elixer” aka a red berry juice that arrived surprisingly in a chemistry flask – perhaps a gypsy concoction?
The girls showed up not long after and we settled into our seat (luckily someone had just left so we were able to get a table for three). The menu was varied with something for everyone with a sight bent towards middle eastern with Turkish Delight iced tea and Dukkah and Fetta eggs on the menu.
We all ordered a variation on the egg theme and everything came out in generous servings and as a tasty combination.
it was the perfect place to pop in and grab a yummy brunch and we whiled away some time chatting about life and our hoped for finds at the market.
One of our random conversations, we have many, centered around the cute souvenir teaspoons that we were provided with for coffee. Do they still make them? Yes they do. Who would buy them? Well we now know it will be us and as a result Bean may well be a gifted of these for a very very long time. Lucky Bean.
While we say no Gypsys hiding out we did see the Northocte crowd in theisettlement and a few families and bike riders too. I really liked this place and there are still a few things on the menu I would love to try.
