Humble cafe. Bold taste.

Welcome to UGO Cucina Popolare, a charming cafe nestled in the heart of Heidelberg West. Our little eatery is dedicated to serving up authentic Italian sandwiches, known as panini, alongside a delightful range of breakfast treats (colazione), lunch specialties (pranzo), and refreshing drinks (bibite).

At UGO, we take pride in our daily specials, crafted with care using fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients. While our focus may be on panini, our menu also boasts an array of breakfast delights, including croissants, pastries, and bagels, as well as a lunch selection featuring seasonal burrata and pasta dishes.

Whether you're stopping by for a quick bite on the go, or catching up with friends at our outdoor picnic tables, we invite you to join us at UGO Cucina Popolare for a humble but delizioso taste of Italy's rich culinary tradition.

"Been here many times and never been disappointed. Food is consistently high quality, everything made with love. Super friendly staff and great coffee. The porchetta rolls are one of the best I've had in Melbourne."
"Delicious sandwiches, delicious cannoli. Lovely service. Do yourself a favour and pick up lunch from here, you will not regret it."
Blink and you’ll miss this place, so you had better keep your eyes peeled. The food, coffee and service were all lovely.  Highly recommend!
