Grub Food Van - Review - Fitzroy

The Grub Food Van (87-89 Moor St, Fitzroy, VIC 3065) is one of those great discoveries that makes you happy to be alive.  Its not often you find new places with character and charm that also don't seem to be trying too hard.  Now, The Grub Food Van certainly isn't for everyone but on a nice sunny day and its open air charm its a very nice place to be.

I venture to say that on summery work days those in the know probably come here for a nice coffee and enjoy its casual and welcoming looks.  I just like the ambience of the place but then, thats me.

Anyway, out the front they have managed to create a 'Mash' as in the tv program kind of look although they've managed to avoid khaki wartime overkill.  The planter boxes add a pleasant friendliness to the place and the plants extend into the interior as well.   

I like to use of old school furniture and assorted toys spread out over the place.  What caught my eye though was the Barack Obama table mat made out of old school plastic found on dinner tables in the 70s and early 80's.  I say bring back the nostalgia but not the food.

There's a nice selection of typical brunch, lunch fare and the presentation is a nice surprise. The old brownish porcelain is brought back in all its glory and thankfully limited to only the outer edges of the plates.  Maybe all brown is too much for anyone to bare in the 21st century.
