A brief introduction about coffee in Melbourne,
Coffee in Melbourne has only come into the spotlight in this decade. Getting a coffee (in the city especially) was never considered to be a social thing, it was strictly for energy purposes only. However at around the halfway point of the 2000’s the world of coffee transformed from the stale world of business to the exotic landscape of leisure. Social coffee’s is certainly an idea that has been imported from Europe, this been said the iconic Pellegrini’s Espresso Bar is one of the corner stones of coffee culture that was straight out of Italy and opened in 60’s.

66 Bourke Street Melbourne 3000.

– “Not a great experience I’m afraid. We’ve tried a few times to get in and finally got in on a Sunday afternoon. I’m sorry to say the experience was disappointing. Well overcooked pasta and fairly bland sauces used on both the rigatoni and the ravioli. Shame – I was really looking forward to the experience.” – Anthony Gattly. 32yrs.
