Cafes are popping up everywhere these days and Rosebery in particular has gained a few good places in the past few months with the likes of Substation and Haven. Moon and Back hailing from Japan (Kyoto) has opened opposite Haven which must be tough for competition, but they’ve got their own niche, primarily focusing on coffee and cake, as well as selling ceramics.
Their coffee is made using Artificer beans, which is one of our favourites and rare to find in our area. I look forward to the day when they use dine in cups and not single use ones.
Their baked goods are Japanese style, and their main cake is the canele and matcha chiffon cake baked in store.
The store also sells a range of ceramics and this makes for a stunning aesthetic, with its clean lines and shelves decorated with the ceramics for sale. Concrete floors, and a grey and white hue throughout the space, mixed with a touch of pastels from the flowers and ceramics.
Staff are lovely and keen to help in any way.
