    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.

    Coffee is consistent and good. A great option if in the area but better set up for a take away than to have in.

    Yeah, we'l the location is a little awkward next to the fish stalls. Quite unpleasant smell. Take away only. The coffee was quite nice though.

    Oh dear, I just payed $4 for a burnt coffee. No good. Maybe it's a one off and I was unlucky... Also the shop is situated right next to the fish stalls at the market, and the whiff of fish was too much while I stood and waited. Sorry chaps, won't be back.

    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

    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

    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!

    Staff were good, knew their coffee, but were pretentious. Would go back for the caffeine hit but wouldn't hang around.

    Great knowledge and willing to chat. Coffee worth seeking out.

    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 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!
