Redfern, known to be a rather ‘dodgy’ area, it is such a surprise that there is an existence of this small, but classic and vintage kind-of feel cafe.
Baffi and Mo Espresso, easily recognised with their ‘moustache’ logo, makes the cafe outlook more quirky I suppose? Maybe ‘Mo’ means moustache? I wonder…
Oh well~ not the main point here. So, have a look at the Interior,
I can say, what I love most about this cafe, not just the food but this holy-messy layout of the counter that gives the vibe of classic and vintage. I mean, of course most cafes have counters that might be similar to this. But till, I just love this particular one!!
And the CAKES, ERMAGERD!
Good choice of wallpaper too!
An antique pot of sugar!

- Baked Eggs with sobrasada, roasted tomato, roasted capsicum, mozarella and grilled bread: MMMmmm.. Doesn’t the name itself makes you salivate? This is one hell of Eggs OVERLOAD. I think there is about 4-5 eggs in the pan! Literally. If you love eggs, you will definitely fall in love instantly. The tomato sauce that they blend with….YUMs. And I can say this is probably one of their specialty?! It goes so well with the grilled bread.
- Potato hash stack with smoked ham, topped with coleslaw, poached egg and asparagus: This is one interesting dish. It is similar to Kakiage (A japanese tempura veggie dish). Exact same texture and taste, except that they uses sliced potatoes and coleslaw with a poached egg on top. Poached egg was cooked os perfectly that the egg yolks drizzles out…. =P
- Corn and pea fritters with grilled haloumi and oven roasted tomato sauce: Probably not one of the best dish on our table, but still, FANTASTIC. Healthy choice I would say. Its just a typical corn fritters with peas. However, the combination with grilled haloumi is a brilliant idea tho. Without it, I don’t think it will be as fantastic.
Regular cafe with regular pricing. But, the portion served was indeed huge. So, it’s good if you come in groups so that you can share. For all the three dishes we had, I only paid $13+? That’s a pretty good deal, I suppose. Well, for me that is.
Summed up with the word: ‘ Classic and Vintage’. ME LIKE!! Although, it is small and maybe squeezy if you are to come in a big group, but there is still a choice of chilling outdoors instead! So, all good!
