Degraves Espresso Bar

With a four-star rating on Trip Advisor, the Degraves Espresso Bar is a popular spot among tourists and locals alike. Located on the iconic Degraves Street, this is a great place to stop for a cheeky flat white and sit back and enjoy watching people pass by.

Market Lane

Since Market Lane ONLY serves coffee, it's safe to assume their brews must be good! Don't go here if you are after a big breakfast, but definitely make time to pop in at some point throughout your stay in Melbourne if you want to see what all the fuss is about.

Batch Espresso

One of the great things about Melbourne is that it is a city buzzing with different cultures. Batch Espresso cafe is a New Zealand-inspired coffee shop, where you can taste the delicious flavours of Kiwi-brewed long blacks, lattes and whatever else takes your fancy.

Auction Rooms

This cafe will give you a taste of what dining in Melbourne is all about. Located in a large warehouse, Auction Rooms has a distinctively industrial feel, and definitely has the "cool-factor". What's more, it has a coffee roastery on site – a sure-fire sign that the coffee is excellent!

Marios Cafe

Visit Marios Cafe for a slice of Italy – and an exceptionally good cup of coffee! The clever team at Marios have created their own blend of coffee, which they serve in-store and also sell from the bag so you can keep on enjoying it long after you have left Melbourne.
