    How Proud Mary is not in the top 10 cafes is beyond me. We had a delightful Honduras Pour Over this morning, and the theatrics of watching the barista brew it at the bar was a real bonus. He gladly explained the coffee to us, and was happy to show us the background information on the PMC ipad... Read more

    My first 10 ratings for all categories. Staff super nice and efficient. 3/4 latte awesome and food was exceptional . No wonder it's so well rated on BH.

    This is a must for anyone visiting Melbourne. They know they're good too, you won't see the words "Proud Mary" written anywhere. The coffee speaks for itself, but with their breakfasts, very generous servings. The staff go out of their way to make sure there's not one thing to grizzle about. A top spot.

    Odd how places that get their beans sourced by Proud Mary score higher than Proud Mary themselves. The whole place with the 6-group setup looks impressive, nice atmosphere. The yirghachife as s cappucinno was okay, the honduras paca as a short mac indeed had a very nice crisp acidity to it, very good coffee.

    As everyone has been saying, the service is excellent. The coffee is also great, full of flavour, no bitterness. Was well and truly buzzing when i left.

    The coffee here is pretty damn good. Not the best in Melbourne but generally really nice. The food is also consistently good but the portions are not very big. It can be quite difficult to get a seat on the weekend so be prepared to wait a bit. Take away coffees also take ages on the weekend.

    Love this place, although it is super busy when we come here on weekend . Coffee is still consistently great as well as the food. Service was never a let down to us as well as the waiting time. Great job guys

    A couple of superb piccolos on two different origins. Really one of my favourite cafes in Melbourne and even though it's noisy, I love the atmosphere.

    I didn't manage to get to Proud Mary when I was last in Melbourne 2 years ago. This time around they were on my list and I hopped off the 86 tram I'd caught from where I'd been staying and made the short walk thereafter. I was surprised to see that even though they'd only been open a very short... Read more

    Really great little cafe. Coffee was spot on and breakfast was delicious. Had the avocado on toast with quinoa tabouli and a poached egg - great flavours. Service was super friendly and accommodating and the place was busy, with a nice buzz. Will definitely be back!

    Had a Brazilian chemex. My goodness it was good. Light, refreshing and a great creamy finish.

    Popped in today, for a coffee. Lovely service. Cool (as in a little cold) coffee.

    Managed to avoid the weekend rush and visit during a quiet Thursday. I have had this as one of the best cafes in Melbourne, but have visited others purely because I didn't feel like waiting in the cold. This visit left me disappointed. The service was rushed and almost unaccommodating from the... Read more

    Extremely busy on a Saturday morning. Be prepared to share a small table with others. Some staff were a bit stressed, but that's to be expected with the masses coming in through the door. Coffee is good as always. Great to see the consistency of each cup.

    After seeing pictures of the beast of a coffee machine on show here, I just had to visit Proud Mary! The queue to get a table signified that others felt the same! While waiting for my table, I was amazed to see all the machinery around the place! A custom made head head espresso machine, a... Read more

    This is an awesome cafe, the only downside as others have said is that it is too busy ! The menu choice is massive, with different beans and styles, but at the time we went there just wasn't the opportunity to check things out further. Had a long mach - was very nice and certainly in line with... Read more

    This exudes cool. Music comes loud, staff are hip, coffee comes out banging and the food is the polish to what is a benchmark all rounder cafe. I have had a few coffee's since moving here, think that the coffee is always better in the morning...it just doesn't taste as dirty.

    Great to get back. It had been a while since I got in here. Even better than I remember. Gee I wish I could visit every day. Coffee, food and service all top notch.

    They say that size doesn’t matter but when you walk into Proud Mary’s you soon realise that this is just rubbish. Man this machine is huge and beautiful with six shiny groups each on individual boilers, two huge boilers for the 3 steam wands (the middle one operated by a foot pedal!) and six... Read more
