What a surprising find. Just when I thought there was no good coffee in South Melbourne, I stumble across Stoker. I was initially drawn by the Pancakes, which were unreal. The coffee is unbelievable. They use Industry Beans, which I am told are passionate roasters in Melbourne. My shot was strong, had a great body- AND NOT TOO LIGHT! About time.
This is definitely the best coffee i have had in South Melbourne. Total care is put into every extraction. My short black was an Ethiopian Yirg from Industry Beans, and was flawless. Juicy rich apricot notes, with a natural sweetness. This is what you expect from specialty coffee. Stoker also have a great menu offering some favourites like the tasty hot dog, burgers, and some of the most amazing pancakes.... sweet and savoury. Staff are not only friendly, but very polite. Hats off to Lucy, the barista on the Sunday morning we visited Stoker. Handled each customer with class
An unassuming cafe that can pulled excellent double ris. The house blend is from Industry Beans and single origin from The Maling Room. The inside is nice and cozy, plus the advantage of this place closing late meaning that you can have a late evening coffee.
