Higher Ground, opened in 2016, is the latest cafe from the team behind The Kettle Black and Top Paddock. Sitting empty and unused for 30 years since the 1980's, it has now been lovingly restored and rebuilt over 2 years.

Not quite a cafe, not quite a restaurant, we offer innovative fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner, alongside specialty coffee and a wine list featuring varietals ranging from South Africa to Spain.

On the corner of Little Bourke Street and Spencer Street, only a stones throw away from Southern Cross station and Tram stop 120 and 96, sits a dining experience quite unlike any other.
