The Young Bloods Diner luckily doesn’t have much to do with the gang. Not a sight of red, nor an angsty face around. Nestled comfortably in the Rose Street Artist Markets, it’s safely tucked away from the Crips and the KKK.
Just friendly staff, happy customers, vibrant colours and fine artwork. A comfortable unpretentious ambience with a young vibe.
The interior is modern and sophisticated with great design is in every corner with interior by March Studio, branding by Lemonade and the whole operation by none other than the guys that brought us The Rose Street Artists Market itself.
The clever guys also created a stunning rooftop bar above the sleek diner with shelves full of tempting liquor, rays of sunshine, fresh air and a magnificent view over the market and Fitzroy.
The menu has a list of unique appetising dishes and a house-blend coffee is on offer; made with local dairy milk by Saint David’s Dairy in Fitzroy. (Amazing milk.)
I ordered the short rib gratin with greens and a fried egg.
Delicious layers of potato and slow cooked ribs, soft and flavoursome on the bed of greens which was a nice healthy touch.
Michael got the roasted cauliflower with confit ocean trout and hazelnut. Divine, full of flavour and goodness.

The food was delicious. I’ll definitely be back to try the coddled eggs and down a cheeky beer in the rooftop. It’s almost summer after all!
