I’ve been here many times mulling over how I should rate this cafe. While I’ve had some excellent espressos here, the quality and consistency of the long blacks is average at best. Let’s talk about the consistency - there appear to be 3 baristas (I could be wrong there) but all make the coffee in a different manner, leading to the lack of consistency. People like to go to a particular cafe because they can get the same high quality coffee there, regardless of how it’s made. It is hugely disappointing to rock up on day and get a great coffee and then come back the next day only to get an average one. On quality, I like a short long black - the kind that fits into the 4.5oz cup that most cafes have. Accordingly I have a 6oz takeaway cup to fit the coffee I like. Most cafes will make a 4.5oz coffee that fits in the cup. Not here! They made a full to the brim cup such that I couldn’t put the lid on! I complained and they shrugged their shoulders and tipped the top of the coffee out together with the crema and handed it back to me, dripping coffee down the sides. Very disappointing - a cafe focussed on quality, service and repeat business would have remade that coffee. Unfortunately this is not an isolated incident as someone else from my office had a similar experience with a takeaway long black. Consequently we have collectively decided to stop using this cafe.

Very cute place to get a great coffee. Not a lot of seating; grab a stool and sit at the window. Sparkling water - long black- good!

After a disappointing coffee somewhere else we were desperate to find a good coffee. Thank god for beanhunter - 890 meters away was this little place displaying a 9+ rating. Lovely vibe, incredibly accommodating staff and delicious coffee. Thank you, when we are in the city, we’ll be back 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

The atmosphere of a trendy designed cafe, the smooth cafe beats in the background and coffee that was 10/10 👍🏻. A great all rounded experience at this ultra cute city cafe.

As a Melbourne local I have to say the little avenue has to be one of my favourite cafes in Melbourne CBD. The atmosphere, service and coffee blend is perfect and every time I walk in I feel like I'm walking into a small party of italy with the music and friendly personal and amazing coffee. I would advise this place to all for excellent coffee and service. ❤️ it's Melbourne hidden gem.

Beautiful little space and nice options in the quick food department, staff are wonderfully attentive, drinks menu varied and interesting. But the coffee, a bit of a letdown, not sure what beans they use but could be in the DiBella range, but if you want something a bit less on the bitter side than you might want to head down the road to Patricia’s. Beautiful place though, I’ll be back to give it another go.

Thank you for your feedback, I can definitely say we don't use Di Bella coffee, our coffee comes from Where's Marcel Roasters locally produced with two profiles dark roast for milk and lighter roast for blacks, and rotating singles for batch brew and cold drip. All our beans are sourced direct from the farms then roasted & blended locally. Your more than welcome to come back for a complimentary coffee & try another blend 😊we like all our customers to leave satisfied
