If your dreams are to feel more CEO then hipster over a morning long black this CBD joint is clearly the option for you. White linin and questions over whether you have a reservation on arrival, make the place ooze Melbourne big wig class.
In winter enjoy the style of the inside, which Broadsheet describes as “evoking the romance of a time gone by”, in summer I’d prefer to feel a little bit more European and enjoy your coffee on the foot path.
The coffee was in keeping with the style of the clientele, if you get what I mean, it was alright bit nothing to write home about. The crema was a bit of a mixed bag not really settling well and a little thin for a espresso pout. The flavors will appeal if you like single minded old school Aussie/Italian roasts. Overall, I’d prefer to get a wine here in the evening, too many other great coffee options near by. But if you’re looking to close a business deal, this is a good place.
