True North is a café in the northern Melbourne suburb of Coburg. We opened in mid March 2014 and have been doing our upmost to serve up great food and coffee seven days a week since.
It all started back in 2013 when our mutual love for all things spicy resulted in us creating our very own brand of hot sauce ‘Nordic Frost Burn’. The response was incredible and when batch number three also sold out the day of release, we thought “Hey, maybe there is something in this.” Nadia had been working in cafes for many years, running the show at most of them and Brett, having spent years working in music and tour management where he learnt to make things stay on track no matter what the circumstances, we saw an opportunity to form a complimentary partnership. We started looking for the right place and once we found it, quit our day jobs and worked day and night until we had created the café we had pictured in our minds.
We now serve breakfast and lunch everyday of the week as well as offering both catering and wholesale services. Coffee Supreme supplies our delicious coffee, the perfect accompaniment to our range of house made American style sweet pies.
The face of Coburg is on the verge of change and we are proud to be a part of that. We want to be a part of a community that has supported us from the day we first opened our doors. In return we source as much of our ingredients as we can from local suppliers and vendors and we welcome everyone to come and dine with us. No matter what your dietary requirements are, we have options for you.
At True North our aim is very simple: to be a relaxed friendly place to spend time in with delicious, affordable food. We welcome both you and yours to come in and be a part of it.
