Great tasting coffee with house made almond milk (sweetened with dates - tasted beautiful!). Melbourne is known for it’s great coffee and BBB is a fine example of that. Service is great too.

Saw the reviews on TripAdvisor, so was super excited to try this place out on my day in the city. Cute small place, not much flair, quick service... didn't try the baked goods, but ordered a flat white. The coffee was just OK, and the...More

A small cafe that you’d almost walk past, distinguishable by the chairs hung from the ceiling. We went there for breakfast but they only sell (really great) coffee and pastries. We decided to stay for coffee before seeking out a cooked breakfast elsewhere. Really glad...More

Sorry, but I can't see the fuss. Almond milk was watery and coffee was basically undrinkable. Off day or off the boil. Will give this a miss next time.

Nice little atmosphere. Coffee aroma is good. We tried almond milk cappuccino and long black. Very enjoyable. Friendly and sensibile staff. They apply 10% public holiday surcharge.

The latte was amazing and for same price as others in Melbourne. However they forgot about me so after half hour I had to remind myself to get my chai latte.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
