    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.

    Great espresso. One of the most consistent roasters to buy filter roasts from as well.

    This was my third coffee for the morning . I usually only drink one a day or two at the most .. So I'm doing just one shot in small take away cups .. Again I liked this coffee too .. I'm easy to please .

    Walked in "can I have a soy flat white". Barista "we don't do soy, why don't you try our organic milk?" Me "I can't, I'm allergic." Barrista "are you even aware of how soy ruins coffee?"
    Me... Walked right out. Sorry but that was just rude.

    Favourite Melbourne coffee experience. Had a sweet v60 pour over, loved the shop fit out, and the staff were very helpful picking one of their many beans to try. Great little coffee shop and I'm still hooked on their beans, if I see them anywhere, I have them. Thanks Market Lane.

    I don't know why I gave this a second chance. The coffee is so astringent, it's like sucking on a raw paddle pop stick. Don't be fooled by the interior decoration, there is better coffee close at hand. Vote with your feet!

    Best coffee tasted in melb in a while. An excellent nutty after taste. Well worth going to.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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

    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.
