“Good coffee in interesting environment”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

After reading so many good reviews of ‘Caffiend’ I figured I should give it a go.

Hidden down an alley way it gives you the impression you are sitting in a back alley of Melbourne.

The staff is friendly and confident of their skill. To make coffee can certainly be an art. I personally enjoy long black coffee and there’s ‘nowhere to hide’ if you don’t get the coffee making right.

The service was a little slow. Waited quite a while for the coffee to arrive (approx 10-15 minutes) even though the café didn’t seem that busy however the interesting deco made the wait acceptable and not uncomfortable. My friend enjoyed the late as well.

In all I would say a good place to enjoy good coffee.

“Hipster paradise”
Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Food was ok, poached eggs had runny whites, location is interesting, wife asked for caramel macchiato was told that those two don't go together. Staff were slightly confrontational.

Unreal breakfast with great coffee. My partner and i had the big breaky which featured some seriously good chat spuds. Be sure to stop by this hidden treasure for a great meal.

“Great breakfast and vibe”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I had the homemade baked beans with a perfect poached egg and an excellent spicy tomato juice. The cafe looks out onto an alley filled with street art and has a great feel to it.
