I visited Affogato in Hardware Ln twice, first was for a takeaway coffee and second was for breakfast. The coffee had a good body to it with slight acidity. I had 'the lot' for breakfast, cannot remember the exact name - poached eggs, bacon, zucchini fritters. Love the spicy sauce they put on the poached eggs, delicious!! Will definitely be... More

We breakfasted at Affogato in Hardware Lane twice during the second week of the Australian Open tennis, and enjoyed the variety of choices available, ranging from excellent muesli and muffins, to nicely cooked eggs with lots of variations. The coffee is very good, and quickly delivered, and the staff were always helpful despite being busy. We felt at home!

Not to mention also was how great the... More

Had a lovely meal at Affogato around 11am on a Monday (In order to beat the lunch time crowd). Service may not have been the best, but unless you're famished, the bit of waiting won't actually kill you. It's not a big establishment and has only 5-6 people working there in total (?), but the one thing I appreciate about... More

it was early on a cold Monday morning, but I was greeted warmly, coffee was great, and I had the most delicious warming french brioche with maple syrup and bacon I have ever had in my life! will definitely visit again when I am in Melbourne next.

Just had breakfast at Affogato in Hardware Lane, Melbourne CBD. My large skinny flat white extra hot was perfect. I had the avocado on seeded toast with goats cheese and rocket, which was delicious. Lovely quality ingredients used. The service was fast, friendly and fun. I will definitely go back next time I'm in Melbourne.

Comfy and cozy place for a hot beverage and bites. Good service and the guys were just so friendly. The coffee was just too nice. A well recommended place to dine.

I found this espresso bar whilst searching for a coffee last weekend. The place was absolutely packed but the friendly barista served us quickly and served up our coffees very quickly. Great service and great coffee. I would highly recommend.
