Everyday Coffee's Collingwood cafe has long been a stomping ground for the northside's laptop set, its two-room space often brimming with regulars tapping away on keyboards and downing very good coffee, most on a first-name basis with staff.

For its latest outpost, owners Mark Free and Aaron Maxwell are continuing the tradition with a slight trek west, teaming up with a couple of longtime customers to open their fourth space, over in Carlton. The new cafe has made its home in the front room of these former regulars' Queensberry Street design studio, offering a multi-faceted space for working, caffeine-fuelling and shopping alike.

The espresso machine's pumping out Everyday's own All Day blend, batch brew options rotate through seasonal filter roasts, and the cabinet is stocked with a tidy selection of pastries, cookies and sweet treats courtesy of sister bakery All Are Welcome. And when you're ready to leave, you'll find a range of retail coffee to take home, as well as a great lineup of design tomes from fellow tenant Perimeter Books.
