“Really different and worth the walk from central”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

I visited Industry Beans on a recommendation from a Bourne Street barista and it was well worth the walk up to Brunswick Street! Though isolated the roastery-cum-cafe felt open and friendly and the warm service by the staff was aided by the brilliant coffee guide. I particularly valued the maps and the cold brew vs cold drip experience was well worth the $7. With a raw and genuine industrial feel it's a place for real coffee enthusiasts.

“Really different brekky - great!”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We went here for breakfast and it was excellent. A really unusual menu which turned out to be totally delicious. Excellent coffee. Very hipster but I can live with that ;-). We'd return. It was also reasonably priced.

“One of the best in Melbourne”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

I am a local & a bit of a foodie & Industry Beans is hands down one of the best cafes in Melbourne.

The menu is adventurous without being ridiculous and changes seasonally, meaning the quality of the ingredients is impeccable. I've probably eaten half a dozen times at Industry Beans across breakfast & lunch and every time have come away very impressed. Their prices are very reasonable also.

You can access the menu on their website if you want to have a look before you commit. Also, being a Melbournian, coffee is important & IB have nailed this. They have their own coffee menu (which also changes) and every cup is perfection.

The staff are also lovely & the space is light & beautifully done.

“A Find”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

On a beautiful sunny winter's day that Melbourne puts on to give hope to its citizens I and a friend found our way to this hidden gem.
It's hard to find being tucked away but it was worth the fine.
The waitress made us feel right at home and ever though we moved tables it was no problem.
We are in out sixties and really enjoy trying new food.
With cold cured salmon and an omelet that looked like a piece of art we were rewarded having found Industry Beans.
The surprises didn't stop there. The coffee we ordered was like a chocolate and not bitter. They indeed place a great emphasis on coffee as u can order one from most places in the world. Their handbook gives u a map and description of the coffee.
We out did ourselves by having " cold clavier and latte pearls" coffee that I will not describe as reality far outstrips the imagination in this area. The food. The coffee, the happy service and the modern atmosphere is one of 21st Century. Highly recommend .
