Located on the corner of Flinders and Exhibition Street, this pastel pink cafe doubles as a retail outlet where customers can purchase coffee not just by the cup, but by the bag. It's also somewhere you can go for a high-quality cup without being a qualified expert. The team are approachable and friendly about the coffee it roasts and serves.

It isn't just all coffee, though — the cafe also has a tight menu of muesli, toast and sandwiches with fillings like chicken and jalapeño. You also get a pretty good view out over the traffic of Flinders Street.

The range of sandwiches includes the aforementioned chicken and jalapeño, as well as a tomato mozzarella creation, a classic Reuben, as well as hame and cheese croissants and bacon and eggs on a brioche roll. Classic breakfast offerings include bircher muesli, peanut butter and banana on toast, smashed avo, vegemite and cheese and tomato and peanut butter toast.
