Doc Brown – Opening Soon
Get ready to go back to the future – Doc Brown is coming for you. You won’t need a flux capacitor in your DeLorean to get there though, it’s just a casual trip to West End in mid-November. The cafe is the newest project from familiar face Christian Maltby (ex-owner Brown Dog Cafe) and is currently underway beneath the Escent apartments on Buchanan Street. Doc Brown will serve up breakfast, lunch and Genovese coffee six days a week, with the menu focusing on simple pleasures done well – expect 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 are at work on the space, which will cater to Christian’s love of film and aims to evoke adventure and nostalgia in those who visit. There are also plans for Doc Brown to host movie trivia nights similar to the popular events previously hosted at Brown Dog Cafe. Look out for more details soon!
