CBD sibling to Industry Beans' famed Fitzroy flagship store, this Little Collins Street cafe is a haven of top-quality coffee. Here, bright, minimalist interiors prove a cheery backdrop for your daily caffeine pit-stop, rocking minimal seating, but plenty of charm.

While more petite than the original, this space has room enough for some pretty enviable toys, with the show-stealing La Marzocco Modbar allowing customers a close-up experience of the entire coffee-making process. The equipment is used to create a huge array of caffeinated gems, from espresso and batch brews, to a rotation of carefully sourced single origins.

Industry Beans' signature chilled sips — the Fitzroy Iced and the specialty coffee IB Bubble Cup — are on offer when the weather's balmy, while food runs to a simple trio of grab-and-go sandwiches, like the spicy sopressa, pesto and caramelised onion number. Once hooked, you'll want to jump on board the newly-hatched Industry Beans app, now available to download. It'll earn you points and credit for every coffee you buy, and even let you order ahead.
