A top spot for breakfast and all-round great space to hang all day and imbibe too much caffeine, the Fumbally is a collective of good people turning out conscious, delicious, experimental food. The hodgepodge shabby-chic space is filled with communal tables, books and magazines stacked on various surfaces, a jumbo sack of chickpeas tucked into the corner. The crowd is mostly young, creative, literary, and cool. Everything one can possibly make by hand is made in house, down to the vinegar from leftover juice pulp, sunflower milk from the seeds, and an impressive menu of kombucha. Order a plate of creamy golden soft scrambled eggs doused in custom hot sauce on a slab of thickly buttered sourdough. Every dish has an unexpected element: the avocado toast topped with pickled cabbage and popped amaranth, the Gubbeen cheese folded into the eggs, the pulled porchetta sandwich with a vinegary caper mayo. Settle into an armchair for one or several coffees, maybe move on to wine, and soak up the achingly hip scene.
