It was a busy morning. The cafe was full with people, we've felt a little awkward since we only after their good coffee. I've started with a Colombian single origin in short black, which had a great punch!. A latte after that just complete my day.
A good little cafe with great coffee.... Read more

What more can i say.. Service was good, Food was good and coffee was beautiful!!. All in all i really enjoyed my visit. I'll definitely be back. Thanks Duchess team!
One of my favourite cafes! Coffee is very consistent. The best in the west side! This little gem is cozy and staff is very welcoming and attentive. Food is amazing!
1 Flat White, 1 Short Macchiato
Another wonderful cafe in Spotswood. Owner, Bobby, is very friendly, and so are the staff members.
The setup is classy, and one does feel like a duchess dining in Spotswood.
Coffee is by Small Batch, and the Candyman blend was perfect as a piccolo. The single origin from... Read more
There's nothing more pleasing than finding a hidden gem of a cafe with not just great coffee but scrumptious food and delightful service.
I really enjoyed the coffee and am pleased to be unable to fault the flat white, piccolo late and long black I had. My two friends were unable to... Read more
All the best features of going to a fine dining restaurant, but at a fraction of the cost and of course great coffee. A real gem.
1 Cappuccino, 1 Latte
Duchess is my home when visiting the other side of the city. Coffee is always consistent and decent food. However I question their card fee (on ALL transactions). Yes, banks rip their customers off, however we spent close to $100 and then get charged $1 for using EFT.
Scrambled egg perfection! Great coffee and omg the jam rolypoly.
This place is absolutely wonderful! The food is delicious beyond words, the coffee is some of the best ive had and the service was delightful ! I will be back. For sure!
This place is unusual in that it puts such emphasis on their coffee (small batch beans, Auction House) while also offering serious sophistication with their food offering (would I like to try the oxtail special at 10am?!). I have no issue with this however if you are in for a coffee only, expect... Read more
I've been to the Duchess a few times now, and every time I do I feel happy the moment I walk in the door. The decor & music recall a simpler time, and the staff are always friendly and engaging.
The coffee is consistently really really good - you won't get a full-on 3rd-wave... Read more

This is a great cafe for English style breakfast and good coffee. It\'s the place to go to if you\'re in the western suburbs or if you don\'t mind crossing the west gate bridge. The breakfast is presented nicely and taste great, it\'s worth the waiting time. The open space of the cafe may cause the... Read more
Had lunch with the Dutchess and her Roaster - what a great way to spend an hour (a few months ago). Such passion, Auction Rooms Brew made to perfection on the La Marzocco and lunch was killer.
The place looks inviting, after being welcomed by a barista with no personality we ordered. We then watched him fart around with no urgency and talk to the chef, then served another couple of take away customers. This was 5 minutes after we had arrived! He then made them their coffees, still no... Read more
Firstly, i think Cappqueen should go to Maccas for coffee if they are going to judge on size and write their first ever review (and a lousy one at that) without even trying the coffee! We've been a few times now with kids in tow and they have been very accommodating. My view: great coffee; food and... Read more
friendly service which is accompanied by a constant overly compensated attention. I could not relax and enjoy my beverage as the waitress kept coming and repeating if there was anything else. good food but not exactly a good atmosphere to savour a good meal.
Visit here a regularly, what a place coffee is awesome, and food is Absolutely the BEST in Melbourne!! These guys do a tremendous job!!
First time visiting this place and was quite happy with the service and coffee. I ordered a 1/2 flat white in the costa rican which actually came out 3/4 full.. but other than that the coffee was great. Very consistent with hints of citrus!
Coffee great. Food nice with a few different choices on the menu. Only downside was my eggs were overdone, although that may (or may not) have been because I was on the phone when my order arrived.
long black was solid. there's no doubt the fella here can pull a coffee but if I wasn't chasing a feed i'd definitely pop next door for a more enlightening coffee experience
1 Long Black
Truly fantastic coffee, the best I've had in the west. Very consistent. Friendly service and great food too.
Wow.......this one is weird, but oh so good!
Weird as in the food is old fashioned, like 100 years old fashion.....but very tasty!!!!!
good, as in the coffee is great! place is busy and even more so with the back courtyard open, nice sunny weekends etc.
I will... Read more
2 Flat Whites, 2 Skinny Lattes, 1 Piccolo
I didn't even know there was anything worth going to in Spotswood (apart from Scienceworks... obviously) but came to the Duchess after a work trip with a colleague.
The coffee here was pretty nice - could have been a little cooler, the milk was starting to taste a bit fatty, but... Read more

Great coffee- good consistency, good flavour (nice and smooth), offer brown sugar, service was amazing with pleasant waiter!!!
The kitchen is in the restaurant therefore it can be very loud however there is seating out the front and the back but it is Melbourne so note the... Read more
The best cafe in west side. Funny and friendly staffs, excellent coffee with consistency, and good food! Not only the breakfast, I would recommend the sweet stuff in the little cabinet. They are amazing!
