Dropped by for my espresso. This place serves great coffee! I like how laid back it is. I actually came here 2 yrs ago but I didn't realise it. You can buy beans here.

Sorry I didn't buy into the hype. Maybe because I don't know that much about coffee but I felt it wasn't as good as people thought.

Overrated, the coffee was just average. The espresso lacked flavor. Cute cafe & friendly staff though.

The place is small but staff are friendly. It is such a cute cafe hiding in the small street. I have been past so many times but I had never known it's a cafe there! They only offer coffee (which is famous) and some cakes/breads....More

Tiny joint tucked in the middle of Little Bourke. Not many seats but very friendly staff and they serve good coffee. There is a communal table at the front.

Since I am a coffee lover, I really find time to go here and try their coffee. The coffee shop is very small and only a few chairs are available. The coffee was on a average which prompted me not to buy their coffee beans.

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
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
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
