Get ready to go back to the future – Doc Brown is here to whisk you away. You won’t need a flux capacitor in your DeLorean to get there though, it’s just a casual trip to West End. The cafe is the newest project from familiar face Christian Maltby (ex-owner Brown Dog Cafe) and is situated beneath the Escent apartments on Buchanan Street. Doc Brown serves up breakfast, lunch and Genovese coffee six days a week, with the menu focusing on simple pleasures done well – think classic avo on toast, slow-cooked beans, toasties with a twist (mmm … kimchi and cheese) and a cabinet full of sandwiches and salads. Oliveaux Interiors and artist Ryan McShane contributed to the space, which caters to Christian’s love of film and aims to evoke adventure and nostalgia in those who visit.
