When it comes to coffee, Melbourne is Australia’s capital! Our obsession with coffee is hardly new, but what is constantly changing is how our city’s coffee brewers keep raising the bar when it comes to quality of product and the perfect atmosphere to serve it in.

9 COFFEE HOT SPOTS IN MELBOURNE
In Camberwell and searching for kick ass coffee and the perfect brunch? Look no further than Prospect Espresso on Prospect Hill Rd, across the street from VicRoads. They are the perfect little cafe for a quick bite or coffee to go, notably they use local ingredients and free range grass fed meat and poultry where possible.
Market Lane is a specialty coffee roastery and cafe, born and raised right here in Melbourne. They 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.
THE KETTLE BLACK
The Kettle Black is a gorgeous Melbourne cafe located on Albert Road in South Melbourne. The vivid ‘old vs new’, black and white exterior screams attention and for good reason. The Kettle Black is the perfect breakfast location for anyone wanting to experience the heart and soul of Melbourne culture.
Despite its relatively confined size, Hello Sailor is a bright, airy and welcoming. But it can be a squeeze, so make sure you get in early or wait until the peak is over. That said, Hello Sailor has recently ‘expanded’ with street-side tables and umbrellas taking better advantage of its location on the corner of Auburn Rd and Victoria Rd.
Lovers of industrial-urban and pastel coloured interiors, this one’s for you. Say hello to the spunky (and delicious) Kitty Burns café in the eastern suburbs. Hidden in amongst an Abbotsford apartment development in Acacia Place, this super-cool cafe is a go-to for fresh juice or a coffee catch-up with your squad.
Meet CH James, a super chic addition to Station Street, Fairfield! Open for brunch and lunch seven days a week, the menu comes from the talented mind of Frenchman Franck Verschaeve (ex-chef at Melbourne institution Pope Joan) and features Small Batch coffee lovingly made by barista Yuta Tanaka.

1000 £ BEND
Located on Little Lonsdale Street, just a stones throw from Melbourne Central Station, 1000 £ Bend has quickly become a beacon of inner city goodness for me. Tthe Pound is where I take my visiting friends for a hearty inner-Melbourne breakfast, good coffee, great service and awesome tunes.
