What a find!

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.

We stayed in Valparaiso for a few nights and became regulars here each morning for our coffees, they do soy coffee and both soy and normal coffees and the grapes were good for South American standards (don't expect an Aussie coffee!). Sandwiches and salads were also reasonably good but there are better elsewhere- definitely recommended for a drink though!!!

Backpacking Aussies who were extremely excited to find a Melbourne style cafe! Was hoping for a typical Aussie cooked breakfast, left disappointed to say the least. Coffee was good for South American standards, average in comparison to Australia. We ordered the caprese panini-lacking in ingredients, lots of bread (exactly what we were hoping to avoid). The waffle...definitely out of a... More

Cafe Melbourne has really good coffee and what we like is that you can seat outside and watch the afternoon rush around sotomayor...never tried any food but definitely coffee recommendable! Australian style flat white great! Staff, chilean style, bit slow...but overall is very good!!! be back soon :)
