This is a very small and busy cafe. Most people take away because it can get quite squishy inside. Very good coffee, nice ambience with the music, retro feel with the staff,etc.

It isn't very well sign posted outside but it is opposite Paddy Pallins on Little Bourke Street.

the coffee is awesome, but it comes with a lot of attitude and unfriendliness.

Hidden in the CBD this little (it is rather small) gem definitely provides Melbourne's BEST coffee. Not always able to get a seat but takeaway would suffice. Coffee is their thing so limited range of tasty sweets available as food options. Avoid pek hour business rush if possible.

This place is less noisy compared to seven seeds but only serves coffee drinks and limited pastry/dessert. This place is much much smaller than seven seeds. Like only 15ppl would be able to sit down. Drinks similar to seven seeds of course as they are from the same company.
