Grateful to this place for being one of the few cafes open in the area on a public holiday. It provided me with a needed hit of caffeine to stop me becoming something of a space cadet! However this place has a bit to go in being at the speciality standard of neighbouring espresso spots.
Beautiful interior and nice addition to a slowly improving Glenferrie Rd, but sadly it didn't live up to expectations.
A 40 minute wait for tables didn't get things off to a good start, and poor service helped bring the rating down.
Coffee was pleasant, but at $4, and... Read more
Great little addition to the upper end of Glenferrie Road. I didn't have time to stay for breakfast, but I did get a chance to taste a three quarter flat white. Although it wasn't the best coffee I've ever had, it was great and I would recommend it to anyone who's after a good coffee in the area -... Read more

The coffee was quite good, not the best I've had in the area but a place that I would go back to
Life on Mars isn't the best coffee but it still goes down nicely. The service is quite slow but is friendly and the menu (although I haven't tried the food) looks very nice indeed. I'll be back I'm sure - but hopefully the coffee improves a little :)
killer coffee evertime!
Saturday arvo, didn't have to wait for a table. In fact, there weren't too many people which is a major plus in my book. In this end of glenferrie it's tricky to find a place that's chill enough to down more than one coffee. Not too loud and has a Bowie based name. Brilliant. The coffee is the... Read more
Quick stop here a few days ago for coffees only. Staff very friendly. No attitudes! All press coffee was nicely extracted but milk a bit too hot (but most would be happy). Menu looked very good. Nothing spectacular but still worth a return visit.
Dropped in here last weekend as Liar Liar was too packed. "Life on Mars" - great Bowie track, not a great cafe. Go to Liar Liar.
Major disappointment on all fronts!
I didn't think the coffee was all that flash. I am a fan of allpress so will give it another go.... I thought Breaky was overrated and service wasn't the best.
Having been back a few times since my first review, I think this cafe deserves an upgrade. The coffee is consistently very good and the service is much better than liar liar, an obvious nearby comparison.
If Life on Mars is like this, beam me up right now! This is a welcome refuge at the quieter end of Glenferrie Road elegantly sandwiched between Nando's and Della Nonna. Beautiful warm woods and glossy dark interior features standout against a jazzy soundtrack and the fragrance of fresh Allpress... Read more

Love it ! Amazing coffee, great staff And service, yummy food, ESPECIALLY THE MUFFINS !! Really one of my Favoirote cafes !
Life on Mars has a great recipe for keeping customers happy.
Realy good coffee, AllPress I think, a menu that is creative but still allows you to order all your usual breaky favorites , a chef that is more then happy to alter a dish if he can to suit your quirky dietary requirements, (read... Read more
Good Food, Bitter Coffee. I suspect they leave their grips in the machine so that the grind gets overheated straight away.
Really lovely Allpress coffee. Good crema on the long black. The right temp, not burning hot like you often get and served in a small cup, low tide size. Great, it will definitely become a fave stopping place for a good coffee.
Best muffins ever, great coffee. I go there most mornings and the staff are friendly and speedy and treat the regulars very well. Definitely recommend it.
Awesome coffee every morning on the way to work ...usually get a giant muffin to go with too!!
Life on mars is my new favourite.Coffee is on par if not better and more consistent than liar liar.
I Didn't know what to expect from Life on Mars this morning when I went to get coffee, but I walked away with my take away latte very happy and satisfied indeed! Temperature of coffee was perfect. So too was the strength and the texture of the milk..mm very very good. And I will be back for sure!... Read more
It's become our regular cafe due to its friendly service, good coffee and value for money. The food is the best thing about it, along with the relaxed vibe and nice fit out. Liar liar probably makes better coffee but LOM is a much better 'local'.
Fantastic long mac .. best I've had in a while around Hawthorn...could only compare to Porgie an Mr Joness..awesome decor aswell
