Sensory Lab Collins Street
A machine-like specialty coffee shop in the CBD.
February 26, 2017
When you're next walking down Collins Street, be sure to seek out this unassuming little pod of delight. Sensory Lab's space-like cafe has garnered numerous accolades for its curious and artistic aesthetic. Wanting to create a 'calm space away from the hustle of Melbourne's CBD', Foolscap Studio has styled a haven for coffee and tea.
The cafe is a Swedish-Japanese fusion, combining calmingly minimalist design with spacey vibes for a machine-like feel. There are only a few tables for two, and a couple of spots for solo coffee drinkers. Here, you can have your coffee any way you like it — your blend will even come with tasting notes, and you even can take home a bag of beans. Small bits of food are available, too, like topped toast and a changing array of cakes on the counter.
