    Another outlet for the roasting of Mark Dundon from Seven Seeds and Brother Bada Budan. Try an espresso and match with a cannellé. Coffee here is among the best in town.

    Adorable coffee shop with lots of outdoor shade. Get the iced coffee without milk and ice cream for a vegan option.

    There's a vegetarian version of the potato croquettes: mushrooms are swapped in for the bacon. Get them.

    These pumpkin doughnuts with poached pear and creme fraiche are delicious.

    UPDATE: I thought De Clieu was really off their game lately, and my suspicions about the business being sold to new owners have been confirmed.

    Good coffee, nice and interesting menu. The banana pikelets have a lot of cinnamon, so beware.

    I had a BLAT. Possibly the best bacon I've ever had. Coffee is great also.

    These guys put the snob in coffee snob, expect to wait 30 mins for a inconsistent slightly above average coffee. If you want to see Sevens Seed's A Team go to Brother Bada Budan.

    Eclectic menu, which probably skews more to lunch with light breaky (no eggs ;-)). Good coffee ofcourse. Doesn't seat many

    Reeks of pretentiousness. Obscure everything topped off by a billion fixies tied up outside. Dear Staff, A smile wouldn't go astray. Coffee is smooth.

    The already rocking Gertrude St just got a whole lot more interesting. Coffee geeks have a new destination on their Melbourne radar.

    Don't be afraid to ask the staff for guidance with the coffee - they're so friendly and happy to help!

    Rude staff. A girl sat us down, we ordered coffee, another guy came saying we havent booked a table and people were to arrive. They should talk to themselves before offering a table. Never come back.

    Don't order any vegetarian except the potato croquettes, better yet if you are a vegetarian go somewhere else. Charge the exact same price as the meat alternative with less on the plate. :/

    Save yourself a waste- ristretto wasn't poured out of a naked filter, was chucked on 9 bars straight away and way too overextracted and acrid. Spend the 5 mins and walk to three bags full

    Very bad service, forgot a coffee I ordered and I nearly chipped my tooth on a stone I found in my muesli. Not recommended...
