Excellent decision to drop in on the way home. Quality espressi in an interesting space.
An organic wholefoods store turned cafe. The storehouse puts meticulous time into training all staff to make coffee perfect. If you're after a milk coffee you'll be spoilt with latte art every time. The atmosphere is contemporary & inspiring and the staff could make a pauper feel like a king.
The Storehouse has evolved in the 3.5 years that it has been my local. The focus has removed from wholesale organic food store with coffee to cafe with a few ingredients for sale. However that focus shows as an improved and expanded menu including the most delicious cakes, muffins, doughnuts and tarts, with many vegan and raw options. The excellent Capulus coffee has also been replaced with Storehouses own roast. This could have been a disaster and the first few weeks with the new beans had me worried but now I’m pleased to say the quality has returned and my long black is invariably excellent. What has not changed is the quality and enthusiasm of the staff. You will not find better. The bad news now - you will find you cannot drink coffee elsewhere because you have been thoroughly spoilt here!
Coffee is consistently great, milk is creamy and coffee has a unique and strong flavour. Staff are always very friendly and personable. Raw treats and breakfasts are wholesome and delicious, you can tell a lot of care has been put into making them. Also kid friendly. The Storehouse is our local favorite for sure.
Great to see a cafe using the best alternative mills available. Good atmosphere and heaps of food options. Coffee was smooth and well textured
Axil Specialty Coffee and nostalgic jaffles...
On the recommendation of Beanhunter, I walked for ages to find this place... And it was worth it. Great coffee & light meal options.
This place is amazing coffee every time. Reliable and if I'm ever in the area I always get coffee here.
Can’t fault this place perfect in every way #hiddengem
The Queen St Workshop Brother has a different feel to its older brother in Glen Huntly. Sure, it is typically quite busy, especially on sunny days when patrons tend to sit outside and soak in the sun, but the flavours of the coffee are somehow different too. I’ve tried the various single origins, which are too fruity for my palate, but even the espresso blend seems to have a lighter, fruitier feel to it - certainly not the style I like.
A sweet bright and tangy Colombian espresso.. a very light body, sweetens as it cools
Best coffee in Melbourne! Ive been to around 20 different Beanhunter listed coffee shops in Melbourne and find myself coming back to Focus! Single origin Ethiopian is one of the best coffees I’ve had! Ken the barista knows his stuff and his attention to detail shows in the cup!
A great strong Flattie.. nice nutty flavours with a nice aftertaste. Made exceptionally well, with great friendly service
We felt welcome and loved the minute we walked in. The coffee was amazing, the customer service was even better. Leaving with our own container of Kenyan single origin filter coffee... great experience...
Best coffee in melbourne
loved it, very welcoming and full of charm
Awesome coffee. Best one I’ve had in a while.
A trip to Melbourne means a visit to Brother Baba Budan. It's an essential location for those passionate about their coffee. The product is always excellent. Even though I've been gone for months, nothing has changed and they're still producing beautiful coffee. Combine that with the quirky decor and you've got a wonderful inner city coffee experience.
Small batch Kenyan peaberry double espresso tasted of Christmas pudding - juicy and lip smackingly good Filter was a bit cranberry juice, pretty good but spro was the star.
Bang on! These guys are legends and know their coffee. Love their brews and love the banter.
Big juicy espresso went down very nicely. FW to-go had silky milk and a nice nutty vibe
Decent coffee offering. Nice people. Warm and cozy.
Pardon Coffee was a great find. Nice to while away an hour or 2 given the great coffee and friendly team.
Disappointing. The milk was overheated and the barista showed zero skill. No latte art or even any care when pouring the milk. She simply slopped the milk on top of the espresso. Neither the person who took my order nor the barista smiled or were friendly. Perhaps this place is getting complacent.
Nice coffee, but I was expecting more since it was so hyped up, a bit overpriced and expensive though. The service was really slow compared to other places.
this is my preferred venue for pourover filter in melbourne. thanks to melissa the barista from canada, beautiful pourover, the olfactory notes were almost the highlight, but everything hit the spot
By far the best espresso in Melbourne. staff here are friendly and knowledgeable
Was just wandering along and was drawn into the shop. Didn’t even want a coffee at the time but ordered anyway. WOW, BEST COFFEE IN AGES. He was reluctant to give it to me in cardboard take away but I had a physio appointment to get to. Even that didn’t kill how good his coffee was. If you like a solid coffee, this is the place to come.
