Quists roast beans for lots of other outlets and have been doing so since the Victorian government brought the original Mr Quist from Denmark in 1938. Needless to say, it’s great coffee at exactly the right temperature.More

Good quality coffee tucked away on Little Collins St. Tiny shop but fairly quick service. Reasonably priced. Also sell a range of tea/coffee products.

I get my daily takeaway coffee at Quists and am never disappointed. Very consistent quality. You may also buy coffee beans or ground coffee and other coffee paraphernalia/gifts in the shop. Very friendly service. Highly recommended for a takeaway. Not a sit in cafe.More

A really nice tiny coffee only joint. Especially like that they don't engage in too much chit chat. Just really fine coffee with all the paraphernalia for sale as well. A top spot for top coffee.

This tiny café-store in one of Melbourne's narrower streets is very special. The business was set up back in 1938 by a Danish immigrant, a Mr Quist, and from the outset specialised in coffee. Apparently it was the first place in Melbourne to serve a...More

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
