Melbourne knows where it’s at when it comes to a cuppa.
I must admit that if I had to choose between solely being a tea or coffee drinker I would always choose the former. Tea is what I drink the most of when at home and coffee is more of a treat that I enjoy when out and about. Whether that be when brunching, on movie dates or when tea is simply not cutting it on busy work days.
One of the things I love about grabbing a coffee in Melbourne is the experience, which differs between neighbourhoods. Each cafe adopts their own brewing methods resulting in an array of unique tastes and aromas, which are amazingly smooth. With incredible attention to detail down to the adorable china or take away cups. Not to mention the people and more importantly pet watching whilst waiting for the barista to work their magic.
Here are a few of my favourite places to grab a coffee in Melbourne.
Shop 13 Prahran Market
163 Commercial Road, South Yarra 3141
With one of the smoothest blends I have ever tried this cafe chain is hands down my go to favourite to grab a latte. This cafe chain that “loves to make coffee for the city that loves to drink it” has several Melbourne locations. I highly recommend grabbing a take away cup from the Prahran Market location then perusing through the dreamy blooms and sampling some seriously delicious food.
60 Commercia Road, Prahran 3181
My favourite cafe in Melbourne with gorgeous minimalist decor, dreamy blooms all around and amazing coffee. Not to mention one of the best mueslis that I have ever tasted. If possible I recommend visiting on weekdays when it is less crowded in order to secure a front window seat area filled with dreamy natural light.
8 Rankins Lane, Melbourne 3000
Hidden away in a cute lane way in the CBD this cafe is a great place to unwind over a cup of coffee and newspapers. Complete with amazing bagels to boot! Any bagel variety with avocado on it is a real winner.
