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.

I'd happily have my coffee here every day if possible, my mocha was not sickly sweet as other places make, it had a rich, slightly bitter dark chocolate flavour (my favourite) that (of course) mixed well with their blend of coffee, there was water and...More

A small place does get busy so may be a small wait but I have waited a lot longer for a coffee at times. A small but good selection of wraps and muffins. And great friendly service.

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

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
