The intersection of Kerferd Road and Montague Street might not sound like the most peaceful spot to sip on a soy latte, yet by the weekend the triangle outside Albert Park's presidential answer to the Harold Holt cafe is surprisingly calm. Inside Truman is a different matter though, with a veritable army of hipster wait staff carrying intriguing plates, under the watchful eye of an even bigger army of plastic soldiers marching across the ceiling. The Block apartments around the corner, as they wait for their order. Which is handy because the wait can be noticeable, with what feels like all food being cooked by a single stressed chef.
