Espresso 155 is located in Ascot Vale. A suburb that is quickly uprising in housing as well as brand new modern cafe's. This is our second time being invited to Espresso 155, we always love to be invited again to a nice cafe. Who wouldn't, right?

The weather was just so lovely and we got lucky to sit in our favourite spot in the restaurant - by the window with good lighting. The place is very spacious, so you don't have to worry if you’re coming in a large group.

We ordered orange juice and a cappuccino to start with then we ordered one of their specials, Gnocchi with sautéed mushrooms, pecorino, cherry tomato, rockets, burnt butter and lemon. Gnocchi with sautéed mushrooms, pecorino, cherry tomato, rockets, burnt butter and lemon. The gnocchi was just fab. The consistency in every gnocchi is well done. The gnocchi was pan friend and then sauteed together with the mushrooms and everything else. It is a generous portion for gnocchi with generous bite size mushrooms.

Corn and Zucchini fritters. The dish has two stacked corn and zucchini fritters smeared with mashed avo and under those stacks is the salsa verde and salad and finally dressed with house made tirokafteri - cheese spread. The fritters were fried perfectly kind of crispy on the outside and still fluffy on the inside. There’s a hint of parsley and other herbs inside the fritters not just zucchini and corn - simply beautiful. Even better when you eat it with the sauce.

They also make their own cakes and sell cronuts from other bakery but our eyes just set on the New York Cheese cake, the Vanilla Slice Cake and the Chocolate Eclair. Need I remind you that this is a very generous slice and they taste great too.New York Cheesecake - definitely my favourite. Do not be fooled by its humble look but this  cheese is simply just smooth and nice. It glides nicely and creamy when you actually slice it. Definitely one of the best cheesecake in Melbourne.Vanilla Slice cake - the vanilla custard inside is not too sweet and nice. The lightly crispy outer layer and the not overpowering sweetness of the custard just dont make me feel too bad of eating much sweet desserts.

Chocolate eclair with vanilla custard - This is a simple eclair dressed with chocolate on top and has vanilla custard inside. Slightly different filling from the vanilla slice cake but similar style. The eclair was not my favorite since the shell was a bit too thick for my preference. But overall it still taste okay.

Overall, It was a good experience. The foods and drinks come out quickly. For someone who enjoy drinking sparkling water as well, they do have it on tap.
