PM (Post Meridiem)

Located in the heart of Darwin city centre the first thing that captures my attention from outside PM is the large artwork of tuna fish wrapped around the wall. Inside the décor is simple but beams personality, a kind of urban meets simple and sophisticated style. PM is a unique space that successfully brings specialty coffee and tapas together. Who would have thought you could find exceptionally made coffee by award winning baristas by day and simple yet tasty tapas by night?

PM (Post Meridiem) coming from the Latin post (after) and meridiem (noon or midday to midnight), is open from 7.30 am until late. For a grab and go option you can be assured of a quality first hit of the day with an organic Colombian single origin roasted by Bounce Coffee and pulled through a fine looking Ruggero machine. 11.30am is when the kitchen opens and you can enjoy a variety of options from the thoughtfully created menu appealing to both the long lunch of tapas with friends or the quick healthy lunch break with salads and sandwiches made to order.

Owners Alana and Ji opened the doors 5 months ago wanting to create a fun friendly atmosphere that is welcoming to everyone, that blended the café culture with fine dining. Motivated by Melbourne’s eateries to educate locals with quality food and coffee they have ensured all their elements are exceptional. Priding themselves on food designed to be shared amongst friends as fresh as possible using local NT produce where available – beautiful ingredients, cooked simply is key.

You can tell that PM is an extension of the husband and wife duo. Alana manages front of house whilst Ji gets creative in his open kitchen doing his chef business. Both friendly and passionate about delivering the best experience to their guests, you can feel it straight away when you enter the intimate and stylish space.

I especially enjoyed the Grilled Chicken, Watermelon and Feta Salad, the combination of textures was perfect and light for the 30 + degree days we were experiencing. Along with the spectacular variety of beverages tantalising my tastebuds I came back three times during my week in the the Top End.

Lucky enough to experience breakfast, lunch & dinner I can honestly say I cannot fault the experience. PM is definitely lifting the profile of Darwin’s dining and I urge you to stop by so you can enjoy PM for yourselves.

Open: Tue to Sat – 7am open for coffee and grab and go items. 11.30am until late for kitchen.
