Melbourne has always been the top city that I want to visit since I became a coffee lover a few years ago.
When talking about coffee, everyone loves the Aussie-vibes, with their signature cup of flat-white and awesome plates of food. So here, I want to document my cafè-hopping experience in Melbourne, and to share with you guys what and why I love this city of caffeine.
– A MINIMAL CAFE IN CBD-
SHAMBER COFFEE BREWERS
423 Little Collins St, Melbourne
位於市中心的一家小咖啡店，是我在墨爾本的最後一天發現的。那天早上，在出發到機場前，我正想著要在臨走前再喝一本 Flat White，所以便到酒店附近踫踫運氣。通常，在外地旅遊時，我會預先研究應該到哪些咖啡店，例如「2017 最佳咖啡店」或「墨爾本最好的咖啡店」；誰知湊巧找到的 Shamber Coffee Brewers，卻讓我如此難忘。
很喜歡他們白色和簡約的裝飾，杏仁奶沖成的 Flat White 也很好的喝。在店中的短短 15 分鐘， 發現很多在附近工作的人也會去買外賣咖啡，順道和咖啡師閒聊。除此之外，他們也有一些有趣的書本，讓你可以在留白小空間中閱讀、休息。
The little cafe located in the CBD, I discover this little white space on the last day in town – I was looking for a little short coffee break while waiting for my family to get ready and leave for the airport. Normally I will research about which coffee shops to visit, for example “the best coffee shops of the year”, or “the place for best coffee in town”, but Shamber Coffee Brewers hasn’t let me down.
Love the white and minimal interior, and the almond milk flat white is awesome. Many people pop in for a takeaway coffee and casually chat with the barista. They also have some interesting books for you to read if you are going to stay in for a while.
– SPECIALTY COFFEE & BAGEL –
8 Rankins Lane, Melbourne
墨爾本的街頭巷尾總是充滿了驚喜，Manchester Press 就是其中一個。在畫廊和獨立服裝品牌店的旁邊，小巷的盡頭是一家復古工業風格的咖啡店。高天花、磚牆、低掛燈……這些佈局也使小店更加特別。而在午飯時間，滿座的店就直接的表達了——這店對於當地人來說很有口碑的。
除了咖啡，他們還有不同的食物選擇，賣的主要是貝果包三文治(Bagel)。我選了「Shroom」 – 烤蘑菇，涼拌白菜絲和自家燒烤醬(有素食/純素可供選擇)。吃上去很惹味，同時它也配上一份生菜沙拉。假如你也喜歡咖啡和貝果，就不要錯過這個地方了。
Lanes in Melbourne are full of surprises. Located in Rankins Lane, near to a gallery and an independent label clothing brand, Manchester Press is a vintage industrial style coffee shop. High ceiling, brick wall with low hanging lamps, all these features make the shop more special. It is obviously a very well-known place for locals as it is full of people during lunch hour.
Besides coffee, they also have a bagel-based menu, I had “Shroom” – Roasted Field Mushroom, Coleslaw and House Made BBQ sauce. (Vegetarian/Vegan option are available.) It is full of taste and I like it comes with a side salad. My friend had “Smoked Salmon” open bagel, and she said it was nice too. A place not to miss if you love coffee and bagel.
– THE COFFEE LABEL YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS –
MARKET LANE COFFEE
83-85 Victoria St, Melbourne.
在香港和世界各地的咖啡店聽過「Market Lane」這個名字很多遍(不時也有咖啡店是使用他們的豆子)， 今次終於有機會到訪他們的店了。雖然他們的店上沒有提供植物奶，純素食者的我未可以在地品嘗到他的咖啡；但我帶了兩包他們的季節性咖啡豆回家，並用燕麥奶沖了拿鐵——它的味道簡直是太香濃了，品質優良這般咖啡豆，早知道的話我會帶更多回家呢！
Have long been hearing the name “Market Lane” in coffee shops in Hong Kong and different cities, for their high-quality coffee beans. Although they don’t provide a milk alternative (they serve organic cow-milk), I brought two packs of their seasonal coffee beans back to Hong Kong and brew it with oat milk. It tastes simply amazing and I hope I’ve brought more!
