Take a temporary holiday at this pastel pink coffee paradise.

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 — which includes owners of Hawthorn's Bawa, Northcote's Barry and Malvern's Little Chloe — are approachable and friendly about the coffee it roasts and serves.

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