Oak room, in my opinion, is the best cafe Melbourne has to offer. This claim is backed up by several observations.
Firstly, the quality of the service is evident from the moment one walks in through the door. Not only are you greeted with a smile, but the team at Oak Room will no doubt... Read more
1 Cold Drip, 1 Espresso, 1 Pour Over
Man these guys know their stuff. Had a pour over from Sumatra and was given a full run down of the plantation and taste. Well done guys.
Came here as it was on Beanhunters list near the top. Popped in here for a take away strong latte. What can I say! Amazing! The coffee was silky, not a hint of bitterness and the barista struck up a conversation while making the coffee! What a place, and not pretentious at all! Who would have... Read more
1 Latte, 2 Lattes, 1 Latte
I've decided to drop by this cafe during my day off with my wife because of all the good reviews. Who thought that there is a decent coffee at this part of High St?
We've came with high expectation, and were never disappointed at all. Ken greeted us as we walked in, and Gary (I... Read more

While driving on Hight St Saturday morning, I happened to go past this shop on the way through. Although not on the busy end of the street, this place was absolutely flat out! I decided to go in for a quick coffee and what a little gem this place turned out to be! a big yellow coffee machine and... Read more
Super friendly service, great tasting coffee and sweet things...
Flipping unreal! Such friendly service with an exceptional product. Worth navigating the labyrinth of public transport it took to get here.
Nestled in the increasing pompousness that is Ashburton, i find myself in the tranquil surroundings of Oak Room. So often today you are greeted by lazy, self absorbed hipsters who spend more time adjusting themselves while groaning that another customer has bothered to creep into their 'private... Read more
Decided to visit again on Saturday for the first time in a long time.
The atmosphere was brilliant an vibrant with the place being absolutely flat out.
I ordered a double ristretto in the single origin at first; Ethiopian Guji at the time. It was amazing, felt notes of raspberry and... Read more
Couldn't help myself from returning and after calling in and realizing that they were open all during the easter break. Brought a few friends in for lunch and the place was packed once again! Just as fantastic as the last time with even more single origins available on the day!
Had a... Read more
I love this place and the coffee I will keep coming back
Ken has done it again! Today's sublime treat was the French Mission from Kenya. It is intensely flavoursome with hints of fruit and chocolate. Another new favourite.
It was so wonderful I had two in a row, changing from half-flat white to magic,just so I could prolong the experience.
2 Short Macchiatos, 1 Cold Drip
oak room is such an amazing coffee shop that I couldn't resist returning, being treated like a regular each time with a great smile on the worker faces, in my opinion they have the best coffees in Melbourne on a cold day I would order their single origin latte, on a warm day I would order their...

Best coffee south of the Yarra! Knowledgeable staff & amazing service.
Oak Room is by far the best cafe in the eastern suburbs. Ken is a passionate and enthusiastic barista, who knows his coffee! The cold drip is delicious, worth the trip alone.

Gave The Oak another go. Got sit down service instead of takeaway. Ordered a long mac. Atmosphere in the place was great, just like last time. The table service was swift and on the mark. The coffee...much better than the last time I visited this spot. The yellow UCF cups they use and the yellow... Read more
Perfection every time! I don't really have much more to add. Love the Cartel beans, the silky milk, the yellow cups and LM, and the friendly smile behind them. There is nothing quite like having an unassuming, passionate specialty coffee oasis just around the corner.
5 Flat Whites, 2 Piccolos, 3 Short Macchiatos
Each and every coffee they put out is perfection and their dedication to their craft is second to none.
Extractions are tight, rich and always gorgeous.
Filter coffee is superb (Panama Santa Teresa Geisha a recent highlight) and the cold drip is... Read more
Here is a cafe which you can go to just for a coffee craving at anytime between 7am and 10pm and you don't feel obliged to order food. The barista is well versed in making all types of coffee and will make it according to how you want it and at a very high standard each time.
However, if you... Read more

Well, went there again. This time with a group of 10 for breakfast- and. It didn't disappoint. Coffee simply the best I have had anywhere - close to as good as it can ever get- had the house blend latte, a specialty late, a superb symphon Ethiopian , and finally simply the best decaf latte I have...

There have been changes at the Oak Room that justify a second review.
The Oak Room are now using beans from Cartel Coffee Roasters in Geelong.
The exceptional quality of the beans and the excellent roasting technique is evident in the cup. The Blends and Single Origins are... Read more
4 Flat Whites, 5 Short Macchiatos
Yes I agree with Jack, "the most understated cafe with happy friendly staff".
Finally found the time to pop in and im glad id done so. As soon as you walk in you see the bright yellow FB80 with matching cups, 2 big mazzers and the shelf of Cartel beans next to it! I got greeted and sat down straight away. I ordered a magik in the single offered which was a yirgacheffe. My... Read more
