Have been going to Decoy for several years whenever I am in Melbourne. Smooth dark and rich coffee- very consistent and good service. Breakfast is worth having if you have the time. These guys do the basics well and are proof that you don’t need to be a hipster to make great coffee!
Back to Melbourne again after a couple of months away. I travel a lot for my job in Aus and NZ , and actively seek out great coffee wherever i go. I dont know these guys at all, but the coffee i rate as the best ive been to. Beautiful rich dark choc flavours, plenty of life and freshness with good balance. I go out of my way to have coffee here.
Strong coffee but has that "Di Bella" flavour to it which unfortunately i am not a fan of. Will go back to see if the single origin options are still there (didn't see on display). On the non rating side, food looked alright, I'll come back for those bready wraps.
first time here... lots of choice in terms of beans. friendly folk, nice fitout/vibe. spoke to the roaster who roasts every morning, passionate and into his work. I had a triple shot large flat white; not exactly a purest cup but it more than met my expectations. Superb! my new regular spot.
