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，是我在墨尔本的最後一天发现的。那天早上，在出发到机场前，我正想着要在临走前再喝一本 Flat White，所以便到酒店附近碰碰运气。通常，在外地旅游时，我会预先研究应该到哪些咖啡店，例如「2017 最佳咖啡店」或「墨尔本最好的咖啡店」；谁知凑巧找到的 Shamber Coffee Brewers，却让我如此难忘。
很喜欢他们白色和简约的装饰，杏仁奶冲成的 Flat White 也很好的喝。在店中的短短 15 分钟， 发现很多在附近工作的人也会去买外卖咖啡，顺道和咖啡师闲聊。除此之外，他们也有一些有趣的书本，让你可以在留白小空间中阅读、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
墨尔本的街头巷尾总是充满了惊喜，Manchester Press 就是其中一个。在画廊和独立服装品牌店的旁边，小巷的尽头是一家复古工业风格的咖啡店。高天花、砖墙、低挂灯……这些布局也使小店更加特别。而在午饭时间，满座的店就直接的表达了——这店对於当地人来说很有口碑的。
除了咖啡，他们还有不同的食物选择，卖的主要是贝果包三文治(Bagel)。我选了「Shroom」 – 烤蘑菇，凉拌白菜丝和自家烧烤酱(有素食/纯素可供选择)。吃上去很惹味，同时它也配上一份生菜沙拉。假如你也喜欢咖啡和贝果，就不要错过这个地方了。
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听过「Market Lane」这个名字很多遍(不时也有咖啡店是使用他们的豆子)， 今次终於有机会到访他们的店了。虽然他们的店上没有提供植物奶，纯素食者的我未可以在地品尝到他的咖啡；但我带了两包他们的季节性咖啡豆回家，并用燕麦奶冲了拿铁——它的味道简直是太香浓了，品质优良这般咖啡豆，早知道的话我会带更多回家呢！
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!
