Hands down, this is the best coffee in Melbourne, if not Australia. Barista are uber friendly and knowledgeable.
Good coffee but surprisingly mine was not great, just not enough strength for my liking. Still based on its reputation this was more a blip.
The espresso is very aromatic and the choice of the beans are very spot-on! They offer great ranges of DIY kit and instruction for all coffee lovers!
LB2 Cafe is a boutique coffee shop in Melbourne CBD, serving up Axil and Cartel Coffee.
My third visit to LB2. They all seem very friendly and welcoming. willing to have a bit of a coffee chat. The options of blends and single origins are great. They seemed a bit busy which may have accounted for the over textured froth on top of my flat white. This was replaced for free when highlighted. But was still not great. Worth a visit, but a little disappointed.
Cool place tucked away off a smaller road. Good drop of the black stuff
Cartel always amazing! I tasted the ARICHA beans from Ethiopia. A sweet and fruity double espresso, the finish was just amazing. This time I didn’t waste the taste of it with soy milk!!! Really busy as usual and smily faces around.
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.
Come here on my Thursday mornings before school! Awesome coffee, very aesthetically pleasing (especially love the flowers on the back wall), love the muffins and great nutritious foods! They support Toms paddock which is awesome (because I love Toms Paddock) and overall they are just damn awesome!
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.
A trip to Melbourne would not be complete without a visit to Aunty Peg's. Never disappoints and always something special to try.
It really is a flawless establishment. Serving the finest quality, well extracted black coffees. They are eager to educate and passionate about what they do. The 2k walk there and back was worth it!
Such a great place with great coffee, passionate staff and great service.
Their new spot is a hidden gem. Say hi to Jason if you're popping in for a takeaway
Cute interior for a small venue. Nice coffee but service was a little average
Wow what happened. Did they sell to new owners? Long black was bitter, machine tastes like it hasn’t been cleaned in months. So surprising since it’s always been incredible, I’m sure it’s under new mgt.
Has Focus changed hands? Went there today and it was chaos. Yes they were busy but there appeared to be no system to ordering, staff were stressed although there were quite a lot of them for the size of the cafe. I eventually went to till to order in spite of being told it was table service, and abandoned the whole enterprise when one of the staff yelled at a customer to get out of her cafe. There was no obvious misdemeanour to those of us standing around. He was gobsmacked. We left. Bad vibe, not sure about the coffee.
Cafe was closing. Ordered a half long black. Almost perfect roasted taste. Texture and bouquet brilliant. Service on point
Focus have long been regarded as one of the best in the business. And for good reason.... if you find yourself in Balwyn, make Focus a pit stop for brekky, lunch or a cracking coffee. Coffee roasted by the Reformatory Coffee Lab. Absolute precision extraction. I hit this place up as regularly as I can! Do yourself a favour ladies and gents!
Got a quick takeaway from here before going on a tour. Great Columbian bean coffee, great service.
Always an exceptional choice of locally roasted coffee, really showcasing some of the best roasts that Melbourne has to offer. I haven't been able to fault this place in the numerous times I've visited. 10/10
One of Melbourne's first "Coffee Only" cafes, it's a bustling little standing room only shop with consistently good coffee. Nice to relax and chat on a rare occasion they're not totally under the pump too. Batch Brew to go for me!
Don't be fooled by the rating. The coffee is woeful. All who have highly reviewed this place need to be introduced to what a good coffee actually tastes like. As personable as the barista is, you don't pay for personality. You pay for product. Wake up Wilbur. What you serve up can't be classified as coffee...
Still the best. Pinto Hound you’re a douche. The barista and staff are always striving to give you their best and it’s always bloody good if not perfect at times. Perhaps if you had an issue with your coffee you could’ve spoken with the barista instead of being a keyboard hero.
Really not up to what the reviews said. Beware of misrepresenting on beanhunter to get customers in because when you get a real coffee connoisseur you’ll be caught out, like what has happened here.
Easily best serious coffee in Moonee Ponds. Great range of specialty coffee and alternative methods. Had a Ethiopean V60 pour over and wife had a “soy latte”. Owner seems like a genuine coffee lover and happy to talk about his beans. Will be back :)
By far the best coffee in Moonee Ponds! I had the espresso and my partner had strong flat white and we were very content with the drinks and food we had. The owner seems to be a coffee lover and he surely made this couple super happy! We will surely go back again!
They know their coffee. Offering a Raspberry Candy blend. It was very smooth and no after taste. Would highly recommend.
Really nice piccolo though I keep forgetting that when in Oz, always ask for a double shot.
Nice little venue tucked away in the back streets. My piccolo was perfect but my follow up latte was just a little weak for my preference. Limited food menu
Tasteful renovation/expansion on what was here. Not a big fan of the new coffee they use now though. Undercover roast came through as smoky in my long black.
Service, atmosphere, and coffee all exceptional. Costa Rican long black was a delight.
Very efficient service particularly on a busy day. Strangely have had nicer Axil coffee at other venues (eg. Cup of Truth) but my Ethiopia filter was still lovely - floral and fruity.
Big tick on the coffee though food menu had a few weird choices
I had a tasty Ethiopian single origin with surprising flavours and yummy roll with beetroot and goats cheese.
A surprise little packet. For a small venue it’s food menu is large and they don’t skimp on the size of the servings. Love that the long black came with a side of soda water
A good drop of coffee in a venue that looks different to all the same cafes around Melbourne
My high expectations were met and exceeded. Great coffee and good energy.
Good coffee, good food. The smashed avo was a bigger serve than I would have expected and was definitely full after it.
What can you say? The coffee is brillant. Small space though that is always packed with the appropriately styled misfits (we are in Balaclava afterall, wouldn't have it any other way). Staff are disaffected but friendly.
Still good but miss the old owners
How on earth does this place have a rating of 9?! I’ve gone here sometimes waiting up to 10 to 15 minutes for a takeaway coffee which is average at best.
Neat little cafe serving Axil Beans. Coffee had a lingering flavour that left me wanting a second one.
In the heart of Glen Waverley, Black Flat is your local hole in the wall coffee house. Brewing house blend from Axil Coffee Roasters on our La Marzocco GB5 and Filter Coffee from various roasters including Wood & Co, ACoffee, Proud Mary's and Maker Fine Coffee.
Latte with Axil beans was a bit bland. Filter out of moccamaster was great
