I always enjoy visiting this historic coffee shop each time I come to Melbourne for great coffee, great service and to pick up some of the best ground beans I've ever tasted. One of the original coffee shops in Melbourne, truly well worth a visit.

I knew this place would do great coffee based on the queue alone and I wasn't disappointed. Possibly the best coffee I had. Ever!

I went to Quists for a coffee yesterday. It was the best ever. Also, my husband is a real coffee snob & he raved about it. You don't drink your cuppa here as it is a tiny shop. It is full of different coffee items...More

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

Central Business District
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
