Most Melbournians are rightly proud of “the café scene.” Known for being coffee snobs and putting brunch on an almost unreachable pedestal, Melbourne residents insist that the city have no shortage of good cafes to choose from.
Here’s a guide of some of the best cafes in Melbourne.
Auction Rooms Cafe
While Auction Rooms is known for being busy on the weekends (you’re lucky if you get a table within 15 minutes), the pace relaxes during the week, so you won’t feel pressured to rush through your meal. There’s plenty of power sockets and free Wi-Fi, so settle in with one of Melbourne’s best cups of coffee and start typing.
For those looking to work outdoors but need a power point; wanting to hide from Melbourne’s cold winters; or simply can’t work without a constant stream of coffee, head south of the Yarra River to Kanteen. With plenty of light and an indoor/outdoor set-up that overlooks the river, it’s the perfect place to break up a long day spent indoors behind a desk.
