Celebrating memorable sandwiches and top-quality coffee in equal measure, this little spot within the Melbourne Arts Precinct is the brainchild of Reverence Coffee Roasters' Andreas and Annie Martinu, along with Martin Mcevoy and Nicholas Tan. And with Palermo Head Chef Michael Dalton behind the menu, it's got some chops.

Decked out in fresh green and white, OlMate's is embracing the beauty in simplicity with a short-but-sweet food offering matched to primo Reverence coffee. Sandwich fiends can expect well-crafted, refreshed classics like the Big Tuna — a riff on the tuna melt featuring nori aioli and provolone on Tuscan-style flatbread ($15) — plus the plant-based roast cauliflower roll with green chilli sauce ($16), and a hot egg salad brekkie muffin ($12).

The roast beef sanga heroes spice-crusted meat, mint and coriander chutney, and comes paired with a rogan josh dipping sauce ($17). And a hefty salad sandwich teams beetroot, sprouts and other goodies with either lemon roast chicken or vegan-friendly crushed chickpeas ($16).

Sips by Reverence showcase the roaster's Lion Tamer blend alongside a rotating single-origin batch brew, with a fun illustration of co-owner Andreas gracing the statement green takeaway cups. Otherwise, you can match your feed with an icy beer from the likes of Bodriggy, Hop Nation or Balter.
