Just do a decent coffee. Nothing great, nothing bad, nothing offensive. If you're local, then hit it.
No fuss, good coffee. The decor is somewhere between an old cinema and an old style classroom. Immediate service, only one size of coffee- perfect. Two strong lattes ordered on a Monday morning. Two completely different coffees cone out - one weaker and hot to touch, the other strong and cool.
Degraves is the epitome of the laneway culture Melbourne is famous for.
Crammed in amongst six or seven other cafes and restaurants along this little strip Degraves Espresso seems to stand out for their laid back attitude but still manage to produce consistently better coffee than their... Read more
Great convenient location, watch the world go by. Coffee was inconstant and milk was burnt.
Great find in the city. Often very busy but service is fast and the coffee is truly great for something on the go.
Good place for holiday makers, obviously a well known and fun location but coffee will generally disappoint the more discerning coffee fan!
I've been here quite a few times. De Graves St in general is an amazing place. Even took some of my wedding photos there!
Coffee here is consistent, strong, and full bodied.
Atmosphere is bustling and very buys-city.
Service? Nothing special, but it will do.
Grubby. Coffe pretty good. Didn't really want to eat there.
A solid performance all round. Being the Grand Prix weekend, Degraves was absolutely jam packed. There were at least 7 floor staff running around, literally, trying to keep up yet they still managed to have a few quick chats and have a bit of a laugh. The staff themselves are an eclectic bunch,... Read more
Ah not bad. Can't feel the love though.
Dragged here by my brother for some breakfast last week, and was pleasantly surprised with the coffee.
Interior is not my cup of tea (for want of a better expression!) - im a little over the recycled furniture thing. New, clean seats are ok people.
Made up for it with... Read more
Great breaky. Coffee to go with it, just ok. A little bitter, and so I couldn't finish it. I guess I expected a little higher, being in Degraves St. Cool shop fit-out, and very tasty breakfast.
If I'm in the city during the day, I can't leave without at least a quick hit from Degraves. Down an interesting lane way lined with graffiti, Degraves is a hip grungy little joint. In a fitting way, the service is very casual, but decent.
Coffee here is really good. So good that... Read more
Used to come here in high school before I knew any better. The coffee is extremely average - really bitter and watery. Sometimes you'll even get a few chunks of spend coffee grounds rolling around the bottom.
Service varies wildly - sometimes you'll get a friendly backpacker who... Read more
5 Skinny Lattes
OK - so I mainly love coming here for the atmosphere. Old tram seats, cool dude waiters. Mostly the coffee is good but last one I had tasted a bit burnt. Its great sitting in the window and watching Melbourne rush past while seeped in the grungy Degraves charm.
I tend to bounce between here and Jungle Juice when in Melbourne city. Consistent and cool staff. Cozy in winter on the old cinema chairs
Great coffee! Amongst the absolute cream of the Melbourne crop... and there is some good coffee in Melbourne!
The atmosphere is all the things Melbourne laneways are famous for.
Heavily tattooed staff add to the grunge feel, but the service can sometimes be a bit... Read more
Good atmosphere, coffee is also good. Breakfast foods are nice. All in all this place is GOOD but its the overall atmosphere of the Degraves laneway area that really pulls me back.
Degraves is definitely the place to visit if your wandering around the lane ways even if its just to sit and people watch. The last time i was here the barista was great, talking to me about monsoon coffee and other single origins, it was a shame i had to rush off for a train.
Went here on a trip back to Melbs over summer. Service was better than most, attentive waiters who love their product. Had a latte which was one of the best I\'ve had. They serve it ready to drink - not hot. Agree with the people watching - Degraves is a pumping cool laneway.
What a great place , perfect for people watching , good food and really great coffee !! Service was friendly and fast , coffee smooth , rich and creamy , beautiful latte art. Had 2 flat whites , both delicious .
This is a beautiful cafe. I love the interior, the seating is spectacular, old school movie cinema seats -- so comfortable. While a little crowded, it can be stifling hot inside in the summer but warm and cosy in the winter.
The coffee ain't bad either, I generally order the... Read more
Ordered a skim latte, came out as a cappuccino. It was sent back and then came back as a skim cappuccino!! What the hell I said so I drank it. It was fantastic!! One of the best cups I've had. The waiters are cool!
Fantastic coffee an the best service very attentive and yummo food. Cash only could've been a prob but I was prepared! Goin back for sure!
