The best coffee in Melbourne, terrific service and a lovely spot to sit outside and watch the people pass by!

Despite not being open on the weekend, this place is worth a visit for any serious caffeine-hound. I ordered a single origin espresso which ended up being a “honey processed” Costa Rican. It was lovely! With my order came a detailed explanation of exactly what “honey processing” coffee involves. Hint: it’s a combination between wet and dry processing.

A great vibe, friendly hipster service, comfy couches and not too crowded either. This might have just made my top 3 Melbourne cafes…

Lovely coffee with a little bit of a smokey finish. Staff definitely know what they are doing.

Tucked away in an alley like all good Melbourne cafés, the staff here obviously take their chosen craft very seriously. The Columbian roast they were using when I visited was lovely and light, with just a little bite at the start.

About the most hipster barista I’ve seen in Melbourne the last few days, but a great tasting coffee in this little out of the way place.

Great coffee, great little oasis hidden away from the city madness.

Super tasty, earnestly prepared coffee.

Great coffee with great latte art and really friendly service

    Good coffee. Employs the homeless. Ticks social responsibility and works on the taste buds.

    Sacrificed quality and service for speed. Unkept milkwand that wasn’t extremely ‘caked’ up but still. Milk was overheated, yet the extration was smooth.

    Lovely service and full bodied coffee. Milk was a bit hot but the bean was strong enough to make up for it. Recommend.

    Hidden near Causeway Hotel’s, interesting picture frames dot the walls of an alley leading to the corner with a semi Slavic/Czech/Russian vibe… This cafe offers single origin coffee in all forms, amazing almond pastries and healthy baguette sandwiches…
