    My flat white was very creamy but a little on the weak side (even for me). Followed with a super nice pour over which surpassed expectations, even at $9.

    This place is what all cafes should aspire to be. Best coffee in Melbourne with excellent customer service. Busy but you are seated with great efficiency. There own range of coffee is awesome. Hard to beat.

    Second only to St Ali in my book, well rounded coffee and friendly staff, will be returning when I'm next in the area

    After enjoying a couple of filter coffees at Aunty Peg's I headed off to Proud Mary's for one of their milk based coffees and some breakfast. Place was buzzing with a decent sized queue. Atmosphere was great and service was pleasant. My latte was very enjoyable and it hit the right spots for me. It... Read more

    Beautiful coffee. House blend was not quite as good as I expected, given the reputation. But re single origin Brazilian was very good. Brekky also good. Nice funky vibe. Friendly staff. Amazing machine - and very obvious that every shot of coffee is made with utmost care.

    Still the best coffee in Melbourne. They know their beans and know how to prepare the coffee in any way you want.

    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

    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.

    Happy with the double espresso ex Honduras. NOT the best cafe in Melb by any measure, but consistently good.

    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.
