This photo captures the vibe completely, the rustic theme accompanied by rickety old furniture create a haven in Hawthorn

Located in the heart of the Glenferrie Road precint in Hawthorn and tucked away next to the train station is Alley tunes. Alley Tunes shareholder (Max) and I had a lengthy french conversation about the ups and downs of cafe life.

The first thing you notice about Alley Tunes is the music, ranging from Pitbull to Prince the tunes are a key factor in making this cafe such a student hot spot. Max told me about the relationship shared between music and good company and how they resonate so well with one and other. Music is a huge part of the lives of the staff, the record shop inside the cafe is Alley Tune’s trademark with people crossing town just purchase some fabulous old vintage records.

REVIEW #2:

Alley Tunes Cafe:

600A Glenferrie Road Hawthorn 3122

PROS:

– Ideal location with great coffee beans supported by the fair trade union.

– “Perfect for students at Swinny (Swinburne) like me.” Sophie Menner.19 yrs.

– “cheap and yummy chai’s man, and I don’t have to go to the city for my Vinyl’s man.” Ben Shannon 24 yrs.

CONS:

– “I cant believe I had to wait 15 minutes for a cold coffee” Jango Garneux. 33 yrs.

– Alley tunes is located within a direct ear shot of Glenferrie station, trains constantly pass through at all opening hours.

– Sometimes tired / hungover staff.

On the hole, Alley Tunes is a lovely little nook located within easy walking distance from the Glenferrie road train station and is often neglected by passerby’s.

Regards,

Cafe di Apprendimento.
