Chapel Street is now home to the Victorian flagship cafe of Campos — the Australian International Coffee Awards' reigning Champion Australian Coffee Roaster for two years running. The Sydney-born brand marked its 21st anniversary year by opening this stylish Melbourne outpost, which celebrates primo coffee alongside a host of talented local creatives.

Lining the walls of the two-storey cafe, you'll find a rotation of local artworks, while Melbourne's own Pot Dispensary are behind the custom cups that prettily house your long blacks and lattes.

The space itself is abundant in warm hues, retro curves and timber panelling, executed by design studio Guru Projects and offering an elegant nod to the Euro espresso bars of yesteryear. Venture upstairs to find a fresh white- and green-accented room used to host coffee training sessions and cupping events.

As with its Brisbane and Sydney flagships, Campos' extensive range of caffeinated wares is front and centre here in South Yarra. The OG Superior Blend features alongside rare Geisha varieties and the newly-launched Lab Series, which stars a curation of limited-release single origin sips.

Home-based coffee drinkers are also in expert hands, with a handpicked retail selection of brewing and grinding equipment on the shelves.

As for the food, you can settle in with a lineup of sandwiches, pastries and other sweet treats courtesy of Glen Iris' AM Bakehouse, while vegan food business Mahadeva's Kitchen has a range of plant-based goodies to choose from, too.
