Not fond of change, I was sad to hear that Brunetti’s is moving from its Faraday St location in Carlton.
According to an article in The Age, the current owner said “We’ve never been able to find a team that would be able to deliver the quality we wanted”. Hardly a ringing endorsement of those who have worked there over the past 38 years. I realise that are don’t possess a razor blade between them, but the food and coffee have always been pretty spectacular (at Faraday St, at least). Granted, the staff display a little more attitude that one would expect from boys whose chosen role in life is to fill coffee cups, but the recipients have kept coming back for more.
At least until this strange move to an arcade – very in-Italian, an indoor venue overlooking the Nova ticket office. Gross.
