Kate Middleton fans and avid Instagrammers, it's time to pack your iPhone and take a trip to Melbourne, Australia to visit a very special cafe.
Called the Middletown Café (of course), this brunch spot features navy and white walls, gleaming brass lamps and accents, and plenty of cosy places to sip an iced latte. It might be the most Instagrammable place to drink coffee on the planet.
The cafe has Kate-friendly healthy menu items like paleo granola and chia seed pudding, as well as waffles and plenty of perfect looking coffee drinks.
Middletown’s owner, Randy Dhamanhuri, told People that Kate was his “muse” for the café’s decor.
“When we think of Kate, the colour blue or navy always comes to mind,” he told People. “We decided to use royal navy as the dominant colour for the wall.”
The café's diamond-shaped marble terrazzo tiles were placed in a pattern to resemble the look of Westminster Abbey, where Kate married Prince William in 2011. They brought the Duchess into the shop in other ways, with illustrations of a trench coat and Kate’s famous sapphire engagement ring (that first adorned the hand of Princess Diana), hanging on the walls.
“It’s a subtle hint to show that Kate ‘lives’ here, without putting her portrait,” Dhamanhuri says.
And would he like a Middleton visit to Middletown? Of course, he says, “That would be the dream.”
