The Ambitious Act Cafe Restaurant

This gorgeous Melbourne café is all heart and all art. A wonderful initiative, The Ambitious Act Café welcomes all Melburnians, but especially its creative types, promoting itself as a happy place for collaboration and the pursuit of the creative. Artists and actors can rent out the performance space with proceeds from what would be the hire fee donated instead to the production and development of local arts projects. The Ambitious Act Café derives its income from the delicious vegan and vegetarian food. Tasty and innovative, the menu itself reads like a script – a smart, witty and unique touch – serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with dishes like chilli beans and cornbread or shakshuka for breakfast, hearty satay noodles for lunch and patatas bravas or handmade gnocchi for dinner. The coffee, of course, is excellent and the company you’ll share here just the cherry on top. A little gem of a place for those with ambition and creative flair.
