All would agree, Lady Carolina is precisely what Brunswick needs.
Just over a year ago, after months of negotiating with my north-side born and bred boyfriend, he convinced me to take the plunge into the unknown and move to North Melbourne. Before my recent move, I spent the past 12 months living in the north where I use to frequent Brunswick on a regular basis. I must say, it’s a place that continues to inspire me every time I go. That is because anything goes!
Lady Carolina opens in Brunswick.
Dare to be different
Just over a year ago, after months of negotiating with my north-side born and bred boyfriend, he convinced me to take the plunge into the unknown and move to North Melbourne. Like the rest of Brunswick, Lady Carolina dares to be different. Inspired by the tastes and exoticness of Cuba, Peru, and Mexico, Lady Carolina caters for all. Entry is on Lygon Street. For those looking for a sneaky taco and a few quiet Latin beers, the Latin street food hides out the back, where there is a robust street-party fiesta vibe.
Approaching Lady Carolina, I realized this use to be the old Jimmi Jamz. After a casual chin wag with some of the staff, I found out that the owners took the plunge and decided to completely turn this (what I perceived as) trendy café upon its back and completely flipped it over. I love the fact they had the guts to do it! That is entrepreneurism at its best! Seeing a gap in the market and a trendy hipster locale begging for some Latin American influence and then providing them with just that! From snakes to two-meter large taco trays, to live latino music, this launch increased my desire to head across the other side of the world and visit our South American friends.
Like the rest of Brunswick, Lady Carolina dares to be different. This launch was extravagant and a massive stand-out in my mind. Inspired by the tastes and exoticness of Cuba, Peru, and Mexico, Lady Carolina caters for all. For those looking to sit down and dine, this Latin Kitchen Rum and Pisco Bar allows you to have a dining experience at the front, where you can be served the highest quality produce. Entry is on Lygon Street. For those looking for a sneaky taco and a few quiet Latin beers, the Latin street food hides out the back, where there is a robust street-party fiesta vibe. Anyone can tip-toe in from Glenlyon Road and tip-toe back out unnoticed.
