    It's been a while since my last trip to Melbourne. While visiting the Vic Markets with my partner I took the opportunity to try another of the Market Lane cafes. I ordered a double espresso which was made using their "Guest Espresso" of Cocola from Ethiopia. It was very nice. Smooth and... Read more

    Excellent location opposite Vic Market (they also have a kiosk within the market itself). Same El Salvador single origin bean on offer at their larger Prahran Market cafe/roastery. An excellent espresso.

    Consistently great cup of coffee here. Service was Ok but can be long wait in the busy time.

    Best coffee in the QV markets. Very professional outfit, and equally attentive staff. The take away flat white had great depth, with delightful nutty overtones.

    Once again, a little too cool. Is that a Melbourne thing?

    Top draw - and the right attitude to coffee making "this is the only cup size" take it or leave it, with a very friendly demeanour. And you know what? They have every right because the coffee, morning or noon, is delicious to every last drop

    Simplicity is the key sometimes... You will be here just for the coffee.. Focus is good

    Quality latte to start the day. friendly service and nice temperature... some cafes love to scorch their milk! not this one... beautiful rounded and fresh flavor. worth waiting for ⏳

    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.

    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

    Today's flat white (or should I say magic since only 160ml cups and double ristrettos are used) was tasting awesome. Such a buzzing little spot where people are happy to wait for a quality cup.

    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

    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

    Disappointed. Second time back. With such high reviews I expected more, but from a group order everyone noted their coffees are quite weak. Seems to be more about the organic milk than the coffee.
