Before this article had even started, we could feel the Melburnian eyes of judgement piercing through their screens. Coffee is quite possibly THE most important part of our lives, closely followed by #fashun and eating at every new restaurant before it’s reviewed by Broadsheet. And we’re passionate about it – especially when it comes to our favourites. But we digress.
The flat white is, of course, the snobbiest of the milky brews and best when ordered strong. Now, read these words with the understanding that coffee is subjective, and while these are our top flat whites on Chapel Street – it doesn’t make them the flat out best, and if you disagree – let us know. At the top of your voice. While we won’t change this article – the support may earn you a freebie at your favourite coffee dealer on your next visit. Now let’s get down to business.
Deep in the Windsor end of Chaps, School of Seven Bells is a favourite for morning city bound travellers. While it’s proximity to the Windsor Train Station is an obvious plus, it’s actually the damn good coffee made with Artful Dodger that sets them apart. Your flattie will be served to you flat, white with just the teeeniest crown of foam/fluff/milky-goodness. It may even be handed to you by our favourite barista. You’ll know him when you see him – he’s the cute one.
South Yarra gets a hard time when it comes to coffee street cred. But it shouldn’t, especially with cafes like Two Birds One Stone. They use Five Senses in their brew so you can trust that it’s smooth, juicy and always hits the spot. It’s our go-to when hitting South Yarra boutiques.
Tiny, with scarce menu options, yet somehow Pardon still manages to win our hearts. Try their tasty NY Superseed Bagels and the “fluffy balls of happiness” (salted caramel or fruit curd doughnuts), available for savouring or scoffing pleasure. Because size doesn’t matter. Oh, and the coffee? We’d never forget the coffee. Let’s just say, they always get it right.
4/155 Greville st, Prahran
The kings and queens of coffee on Chapel Street. They scour the world looking for the best beans, then bring them home to Melbourne to roast and blend. They’re legendary. Filter is their shining star, but Market Lane also serve a flat white that would make the angels cry. The only reason they’re not our numero uno is the lack of soy. That makes our dairy free friends sad.
Windsor strikes hot with killer cafes all within a 30 second walk of each other – but none are better than Journeyman. They have a pedigree in the specialty coffee scene & their baristas are world class. If you combine their meticulous preparation with Dukes Espresso house blend – you’re guaranteed to get a perfect flattie each and every time.
A Prahran staple that sits pride of place at the main Greville Street cross roads. Oscar Cooper’s coffee is always served as a double, the brunch menu filled with delectable bites & espresso martinis are served at breakfast time. As you can expect from Greville’s independant & boutique disposition, Oscar Cooper is a one of a kind.
Picture the breeze in your hair and shopping bags tucked safely in the boot, as we glide you past the cars and pedestrian traffic along Chapel Street.
From 13-23 March, Melbourne Queer Film Festival will present over 110 sessions, many of which will be shown at Village Cinemas Jam Factory in their 30th year of showcasing.
