Excellent decision to drop in on the way home. Quality espressi in an interesting space.
LB2 Cafe is a boutique coffee shop in Melbourne CBD, serving up Axil and Cartel Coffee.
Sexy little establishment in a back street, beautiful Ethiopian natural filter. Great service!
Arriving back in Melbourne after moving away 8 months ago, first priority was get coffee. LB2 was an obvious choice. Brilliant coffee as always and just what I needed...
My Local for many years love this place choice of coffees and am a great fan of the Cartel filters. keep it up.
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
Really knowledgeable staff serving a great bean. Had a flight of drip filter with three different flavours from the one bean - natural, washed, honey. Immaculately prepared while you watch. Great flavours accompanied by some tasting notes.
The roasting has improved. Great execution of what coffee can be. A must visit place.
Attention to detail and great chats!
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
I went with a high expectation. Only ordered a decaf long black to take away, but it tastes good and the service and atmosphere was good.
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 love specialty coffee and making a visit to our cafe an experience for each and every customer! All food made in-house with love. ALL-DAY BREAKFAST!
Best coffee in ages
Fantastic coffee, consistently delicious. Great service and atmosphere. Look out for the disco biscuit :-)
Just perfect! The space little and atmosphere amazing. The long black taste smoothie perfect body and after taste caramel. Amazing experience! Thanks guys you’re amazing.
Thoroughly enjoyable coffee. Always good.
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.
A place of good karma and coffee. Pure coffee with love.
The best coffee, nice guys but they have think about moving in a coffee shop.
Have to give them another review as this was the BEST almond cappuccino I’ve had in a long time. They still are perfect for a quick chat and a coffee to go.
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.
Quite simply the best mix of great coffee great food and awesome service all wrapped up in a cool little space with music and Star Wars randomly playing on a wall. Come on.... give the rest a chance.
Well made coffee, but the roast was not to my liking. Very good service, great decor and friendly staff. Worth visiting, if not making it your regular!
The coffee is great smooth no after taste at the right temperature with a great n friendly service 👍
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.
