Mies, Spotswood

Spotswood. There was a movie named after it once. There's a Science museum there. There's a train station. There's the beginning of the westgate bridge. Then there's Mies. The hippest little spot in Spotswood.
A small cafe on Hudson Rd, just off Williamstown Rd, which has popped up quite recently. Somewhere for the local residents to go, other than Nosh in Newport. This is a good thing.
The fitout is sparse, there's a communal table, but no kitchen as such. There's only a very small breakfast / lunch menu, with eats like muesli and toasties. Pretty good toasties too I must add.
Personally I think the guys could do a bit more in the way of food. If they checked out places like Amsterdam St Cafe in Richmond, they would see what could be done without an actual kitchen.
That said though, Mies is definately worth a visit if you're in the area and after a cup of good coffee and basic breakky, but if you're after a substantial breakfast/brunch probably best to head elsewhere.

I don't know what a "toastie" is - but if it's what is showing in your picture, YUM!!! :-)

Hey Rambling,
A toastie is just a toasted sandwich - kind of like a jaffle I guess. :)

Went there today for breakkie. Excellent, friendly service, very nice coffee. My bagel was tasty with a nice cream cheese, hubbies' muesli looked good. Agree they could do more with the food, but I'm sure they'll develop as time goes by. So so so happy to have this great little joint open up in the local area.
