Giddiup is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it coffee nook on Coventry Street, diagonally across the street from the Made In Japan Warehouse in South Melbourne. I must have walked past it a thousand times without even realising it's there, as the shop doesn't "declare" itself at first glance. The fit out is simple, with basic stools, tables, and even a few milk-crate-converts for seating. Friendly and efficient service makes it a place you want to come back to. Bubs and I stopped by for a mid-morning pit stop after some market shopping.
I ordered a little BLT slider from the menu, which was simple, delicious food and hit the spot perfectly. (It comes in 2, but the waitress let me order just 1 as I wanted to have sweets after.) Coffee is good here, as expected in this neck of woods. I enjoyed my mocha with a little cherry danish by Noisette. Other pastries and cakes are available daily from the front counter. Not a lot of room in the shop itself but patrons were accommodating and I had no issues with Bubs in a stroller.
