This place is well reviewed on TripAdvisor so we thought we'd grab a quick lunch before a walking tour. Food options were thin on the ground and what we got served was pathetic. Not even worth describing, basically don't go here for lunch food. On the flipside, it has very nice coffees and the cakes looked quite good and may... More

Great idea in a place that doesn't do coffee very well - Melbourne changes that as you know where to go if you want a good coffee. Excellent location in front of the plaza and service was good. Bit pricey but worth a visit.

Finally a coffee how I like it! Its hard for coffee snobs from Australia to cope while traveling, but Café Melbourne in Valparaiso will give you back your sanity for just a moment as you can get your latte/flat white/long black as you would at home. ¡Disfruta!

At last we found a fabulous coffee shop in Chile! Good strong robust coffee - of course, influenced by the owners' time spent in Melbourne, Australia!

My husband and I are daily espresso drinkers so we were on a search for our morning coffee. This place has a great location, outdoor seating and upstairs seating. I ordered a small mocha with 2 shots and my husband a cappucino. It took a very long time to get our order and the coffee was not hot. What is... More

I agree with Alex H and the Unhappy vegemites reviews. We were looking forward to a trip to this cafe but were disappointed by this cafe for several reasons: 1. Their version of a flat white is a tepid very milky coffee served in a large cardboard cup, too much milk. More like a poor latte but with no milk... More

The service was really good, and the coffee was great, but it was missing something. The washrooms were clean, but not that clean, the guy that took the order seemed as he didn't want us to order - we have what you see, you can read the board and we have it but it will take really long - were...

Rushed into the cafe by purpose to get some wifi and search the internet for a restaurant. The coffee here is great and the staff superfriendly (they recommended us a good restaurant). Apart from that the atmosphere is nice and very relaxed, could've stayed for more than a coffee!

Well we just had to go in - Luna Park photos and all it was good to support someone who loves Melbourne. We had walked the hills and taken the funiculars of Valparaiso so it was great to find 'home' and have a pleasant lunch at a reasonable price.
