Clean tasty and quick

I love going to this cafe because they have very good drinks and fresh food always. They also partner with the Wally people which are great tours of valpo.

I've been more than two hours in this place, just chilling out, eating, drinking good coffee and reading. It's a really good place if you want a big and GOOD cup of coffee and just relax with your favorite book and a fantastic view.

We stopped here for lunch after a walking tour. The menu was limited and the salad we got was poor and not what we ordered. The worst part was our waitress who was very rude. We speak enough Spanish to get by, but she was not interested in trying to communicate and showed no patience. We couldn't wait to get... More

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
