The raspberry candy double Flattie.. so good.
LB2 Cafe is a boutique coffee shop in Melbourne CBD, serving up Axil and Cartel Coffee.
Coffee and pastry only (no substantial food offering) but the coffee was perfect. Thanks Beanhunter community, I'd have NEVER found this otherwise but when I saw the huge crowd I know if found the good stuff!
A cool little place. Hardwood tables (island benches). Some people have commented it's quite dark- but it absolutely adds to the atmosphere. Latte perfectly made!
My quest to sample top coffee in melbourne has taken me to LB2. It's a great little cafe half way down an ally. Serving axil coffee and special single blends. Perfectly made coffee.
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.
Overpriced for smaller than average cup size. Coffee way too hot and poor texture
Weak, not sure how the rating is so high.
Axil Specialty Coffee and nostalgic jaffles...
Can’t fault this place perfect in every way #hiddengem
Having always wanted to go here,i was not disappointed! Great single espresso. Friendly and helpful staff. Will be going here again for sure.
This is a coffee experience and not for those who simply want a latte or blended coffee. We had 2 coffees as part of a showcase which gave 3 styles of flavour profile, all made from the same bean but they had been different processing methods to create the differntiation. Great experience and enjoyed our cold brew. Lovely staff. Highly informative.
Tried three Brazilians. To start, yellow bourbon natural as an espresso began robustly and nutty, mellowed somewhat to maybe charred pineapple with a nice backbone of acidity. Pour over on another yellow bourbon natural had some attractive mango and tropical, aftertaste had a bit of a vegetal note. Finished with a cold drip on a yellow catuai natural that was rather potent with cinnamon and bitter cola.
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
This place is as much about the vibe-people milling around and sitting on milk crates in the lane way- as it is about the coffee, which was excellent. Service with a smile, too.
Simply the best. After some pretty average coffees since arriving in Melbourne nice to have a great one supporting Melbourne’s claim to be the coffee capital of the world. Busy but cosy adds to the atmosphere.
Best coffee we’ve found so far in Melbourne CBD. Very friendly staff.
Coffee was poor. Very acidic, dark and too strong. Ordered almond milk latte and piccolo. Almond milk curdled in coffee. Had to be thrown out. Wouldn’t return.
really love the batchbrew recipe they rotate here. I had the current one today obviously. great economic price point for morning coffee. addicted to the BBB beverage batchbrew
Columbian Seven Seeds espresso had a citrus zing and more roasty notes as it cooled Batch on a different Columbian was sweet, almost like Ribena
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.
By far the best espresso in Melbourne. staff here are friendly and knowledgeable
This place is oh so Melbourne and what a great way to finish my trip. Full marks in every way apart from the loud music. The coffee was A+
Another Melbourne highlight. Such brilliant coffee and service. The vibe is so outstanding. Lovvve it
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.
Adds spice to the sometimes mundane flavour of everyday life. Expect the unexpected.
