Melbourne - Home of Coffee and Cafes

Yes, that's right - we must have the most coffee cafes per capita than any other city, well other than maybe Rome, Milan or any other big Italian city.
Although I am told that we give them a run for their money.

We have coffee houses set up in trendy treed boulevards and bluestone back alleyways. Only last week I had the need for a coffee on my daily work travels when I called into a suburban coffee house in Thornbury. I have to say I didn't know what to expect based on the decore - or lack of it.
It had this distressed look about it - the terracotta coloured tiled floor had been painted blue and years of leather shuffling across it had worn the paint away. The tables and chairs were out of the sixties and also had this much weathered look about them. The people serving had a really weird fashion sense, but then I am in my (very) early 60s - what I know about fashion.

Let me tell you - I'll be back next time I travel down this street in Thornbury.

The Coffee was great.

  1. It must have been good. We drink very little coffee, but I discovered a tin in the supermarket the other day which said cappuccino with chocolate. Out of curiosity we bought one. Wow is it good :) Diane
