Top 8 places to enjoy a Coffee in Melbourne

 

1. Kitty Burns

It would be hard to find a prettier coffee shop in Melbourne than Kitty Burns. Tucked in the internal courtyard of Acacia Place, Abbotsford – Kitty knows how to make a cracking coffee, and breakfast, and juices, and serve you up a great pastry!

We look forward to tasting their seasonal menu updates, currently serving up their summer menu. Be sure to taste their bespoke Ho Chi Minh Kitty and Popcorn Chilli Chicken + Waffles… Two of our faves!

 

2. Degraves Street and Centre Place

You never know just what you’ll discover down one of Melbourne’s iconic laneways. From beautiful boutiques and sensational street art to quirky nighttime spots and fabulous foodie hangouts, there are hidden gems around every corner.

Degraves Street and Centre Place run off Flinders Lane, between Swanston and Elizabeth Streets in the heart of the CDB. Home to an endless selection of great restaurants and cafes, we recommend you grab a spare seat wherever you can and order yourself a latte, then kick back and enjoy the atmosphere of the the bustling street vibes. If you fancy a cupcake with your cuppa, be sure to stop by Little Cupcakes while you’re there.

3. Market Lane Coffee

Market Lane specialise in one thing… delicious, high-quality coffee. The fact that they have the coolest takeaway cups I’ve ever seen certainly helped me fall in love with this passionate and vision-forward local retailer.

Market Lane have four unique locales across Melbourne, including the Queen Victoria Markets – check out our review here.

 

4. Hard Pressed

When you Can’t Coffee‘ you head to Hard Pressed on Wellington Parade in East Melbourne. This chic little coffee shop serves up French pressed coffee and Latin-style sandwiches, in a modern space of exposed-brick walls and industrial-style hanging light bulbs.

Pop in a grab a takeaway before walking around the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens or heading over the road to a game at the MCG.

5. #Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters

Halfway down Hardware Lane you’ll discover #Hash Specialty Coffee & Roasters. Home to many city worker’s daily coffee hit and arguably Melbourne’s best hot chocolate. Read our review here.

 

6. Collective Espresso

MEET ME HERE. Besides being one of our favourite Instagrammable #ihavethisthingwithfloors locations in Melbourne, Collective Espresso also serve up a great coffee. Located across from Camberwell Station in Cookson St, it’s the perfect little trendy cafe to sit and enjoy (or takeaway) a skinny mocha and brekkie before heading into the city.

7. Capital Kitchen

If you like a good shopping session at Chadstone like us, do yourself a favour and grab lunch at Capital Kitchen.

Conveniently positioned next door to Tiffany & Co at the David Jones end of the Fashion Capital, the cafe comfortably fits a 100+ caffeine lovers and has a delicious range of fresh brunch and light-meal options.

 

8. Rubiki

Ringwood North locals can’t get enough of Rubiki, a refreshingly modern and hip cafe with city vibes in the Eastern burbs.

The friendly service and great tasting coffee (by Padre – Melbourne based roasters who specialise in ethically sourced and produced beans) keep us coming back for regular takeaways and the occasional dine-in brunch. Be sure to take a slight detour off the Ringwood Bypass next time you venture to the Yarra Valley, and grab yourself a coffee and raspberry and white choc muffin, they are the best!

    Nothing from St Kilda? Sorsi de Morsi in St Kilda serves a decent coffee if you’re ever down that way.
