One day I woke up too early to return my hired DVD. This is when Imin's Ready2Eat Cafe, located within the foyer of the Newtown Civic Video store (Wilson St entrance) became my breakfast saviour. Imin's has only recently opened on March 17th 2014, and I was warmly welcomed to try some lovely BLT sandwiches. The tomatoes were sweet, and the mayonnaise was delicious.

Imin's Cafe asks why shouldn't you be able to eat local and seasonal? The menu is variable and open to what nature offers, whilst reducing food miles and supporting local suppliers.
Fresh BLT is best
What isnít made and sold on the day is given away to charity. Why shouldn't the needy also be able to eat great food? This great vibe is echoed in the spatial design; if you're into drinking and eating from a bench top or a casual table with the right cosy feeling; welcome to Imin's where you can read the latest mags with your cuppa in complete ease and serenity.
I tried a delicious kaffe o bulle ($7) which is a Swedish cinnamon scroll and coffee. Other selected Swedish cakes are also on offer ($4) subject to season. All ingredients are simple, free from preservatives and additives.
A nice hideaway off the bustling street, with coffee served in extra large green cups and saucers.
They use the Di Gabriel coffee blend (regular $3.50, large $3.80, soy 50c extra) and the juices on offer ($9.50) are cold pressed to extract maximum nutritional benefit from their ingredients. T2 teas are also on offer ($4), and a sandwich/salad menu will also become available real soon, as at the time of writing this.
Now you can have coffee from a sunlit basement in Newtown
Some delicious juices are on offer: Berry glow I & II, Refresh III and Smooth Energy.
I am certainly glad that I have found Imin's Cafe which is within 100m from Newtown station, and while it is off the beaten King St track, it deserves attention for its pastries.
