“5 stars every time. ”
Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

I have been coming here for about a year every week with my sister and we absolutely love Little Bean Blue. The baristas are always friendly and helpful and by the way they brew and serve their coffee you can tell that they are very passionate about what they do. Their coffee is amazing and their shop was highly recommended in the cafe guide 2013. Coffee is always at a high standard and they have cold drip which is delicious and interesting. Food is simple, wraps, sandwiches and muffins etc. always fresh. Would recommend anyone who knows (or even doesn't) good coffee to head over the little Collins street to Little Bean Blue.

“Good coffee at the top of Little Collins? Look no further”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

If you go once, you'll be hooked. The coffees are brilliant, with a carefully chosen different coffee-of-the-day, excellent prices and ridiculously fast service. Customer service is at its best - the boys will remember your order and deliver a consistent brew without fail.
On top of that, they have tasty sandwiches and snacks.
I wouldn't even think of visiting any other coffee place around there, I'm hooked.

“For fantastic coffee every single time”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

Little Bean Blue has a great reputation for consistently excellent coffee. Service is always fast and friendly and you'll have the choice of the house blend or a special blend of the day (for a little extra).

The texture of their coffee is quite different to many other cafes. I love my espressos and short macchiatos and find that the coffee is very silky and syrupy -- almost more like a Turkish/Greek coffee in terms of viscosity.

It's a little more expensive (by Melbourne standards) than some of the other cafes around, but it's in line or cheaper than many offerings outside the CBD or from other parts of Australia. For the experience of truly great coffee, it's worth dropping in if you're near Parliament Station.
