Staff were good, knew their coffee, but were pretentious. Would go back for the caffeine hit but wouldn't hang around.
This little cute hole-in-the-wall did a good espresso and a nice filter/pourover bar, with a good choice of single origins.
Also has a great range of coffee gear...save your money from Victoria Markets, and buy gear from here instead.
Great little coffee place. Found it on my way to the Victoria Market. Love the interior, the spoons if you have the coffee inside and the saying on the wall. But most importantly my lattes were always great (full bodied, milk had a perfect consistency) etc. Love the place and I will always go back!
good coffee with no good service.
Consistently great coffee. Staff always help out with sharing their knowledge about the beans on offer. My Guatemalan espresso was smooth with hints of cherry.
I came in and had an excellent flat white. I approve.
1 Flat White
Market lane's new child reminds me greatly of its parent: no skinny or soy, but coffee, coffee and more coffee. If you're lucky, a pastry or two as well. My espresso was underwhelming. It was a little thin and lacked the zing I've come to expect from third generation cafes. The service was... Read more
while my double ristretto flat white was really tasty, the service here gets on my nerves. good thing it's always takeaways, or I'd spend half an hour having incredibly abrupt encounters with the staff.
Perhaps I didn't set it up for success, coming direct from the East Brunswick Project. Perhaps, as my caffeind friend pointed out, my tastes just differ. I'm not really one for light, citrus-y blends and espresso. I mentioned this to the Barista who, to his credit, asked and cared and he was... Read more
I had a doppio in one of their El Salvadorian single origins (can't remember which one *gasp*) and it was beautifully-extracted, liquid gold. Delicious. The berry flavours and light acidity really came through and I was left licking my lips. However, the whole experience of the cafe was... Read more
Newly opened and near the Vic Market. Perfect for the Saturday morning weekly shop. Smaller than south Melbourne shop but decked out very nicely. Wide range of beans, coffee styles/methods and friendly staff. Latte was strong, with nutty undertones and not milky for full cream. Fun place... Read more
This very small shop next to a busy market with plenty of competition is doing very well. At 10:30 on a Saturday there would have been 10-15 people all drinking Coffee, with full cream milk, with no Soy or Decaf coffee anywhere to be seen. This coffee shop is just that...a shop for coffee. Once... Read more
Great coffee, great service, great atmosphere! Loved it!
Nice clean space with good coffee

Coffee is top notch, equal best espresso I've had in melbourne, although fruity/acidic is more to my taste than the earthy/dark Melbourne standard. The no skim/choc/soy is likewise, but will catch a lot of people of guard. have no complaints myself though, and was with a skim friend who accepted... Read more
A quaint and interesting cafe with small bench seats and a great display of coffee for sale. Their espresso was a little watery and thin yet sweet and fruity.
Thank you Market Lane for bringing good coffee to this part of the CBD. It makes a trip to the Vic Market a great Saturday morning outing. Coffee is of a high standard, assuming you don't want soy or decaf or skinny milk. Great options for pour over SO's. Milk-based coffees aren't always to my... Read more
miravalle in a long black, obvious cherry. sweetened up amazingly. I would have preferred an open plan but the range of retail available, including cascara tea was impressive.
the best coffee this side of Londsale Street, absolutely fantastic. its a shame the hipsters that run this place have a little too much attitude... as important as good coffee is, your still only working in hospitality boys, lose the tude!
Great knowledge and willing to chat. Coffee worth seeking out.
great spot for a quick quality coffee. love the simplicity
Great coffee, but mainly for takeaway if your in the area- windowsills isn't that comfy for coffee dates.
Great place! Has a really cool feel, I love how simple and effective it is. The service was polite and friendly, can't say much more as I have a sore throat and it's embarrassing to talk. The coffee, a house espresso, was sublime, perfect extraction, will defy make this place a regular haunt.
The Therry St. Market Lane used to be my go-to coffee spot for quick and borderline great coffee early in the year. The guys there every morning were great to have a quick chat with before I had to head out. However with the new staff members, out of the past four times I've been there, I've been... Read more

Great take away coffee place. The height of coffee simplicity - manual machine, only full strength milk and great coffee every time.
