    Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Market lane. Helpful attentive staff and a delicious flat white. I bought a bag of the Ethiopian SO for later.

    First coffee of the day and it's at a highly ranked hole-in-the-wall like cafe at the Queen Victoria Markets. A long line of waiting but they smashed out coffees in quick succession. Flat Whites were the call of the morning brewed with the seasonal house blend. A mix of El Salvador and Bolivian... Read more

    Love this place! Two beautiful filters on two separate occasions, brewed to an amazingly high quality. Great atmosphere with friendly, knowledgable and invested staff who make the experience a pleasure. Will always try to come back when in Melbourne!

    If you like pretentious service, this is the place for you. You'll get a lecture about skinny milk and no chocolate on your cappuccino.
    The coffee was average.

    I have yet to give a 10 out of ten. But this little shop, hidden away across the road from Melbourne's Victoria Market goes very close. Well worth a sip

    The cappuccino taste sour but very smooth. Patria and market lane are my top coffee shops in Melbourne. Btw, the ice latte amazed me!

    Thoroughly enjoyed a Brazilian pour over brewed while I waited, and enjoyed in the sunshine through the large open front window. Very busy café, but the wait is never an issue.

    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

    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

    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.

    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
