    best for freshly roasted coffee beans

    Сядьте у окна и смотрите на пустые улицы. Фруктовым салатом можно наесться на целый день вперед. Бред с орехами и сухофруктами вкусный!

  • Tashique A.

    The first long black with a flavor that I really liked. Try the different coffee beans

    Great coffee. Didn't even have to put sugar in (and that's saying something)

    Coffee. It's all about the coffee and that one heavily-bearded Barista yelling "COFFEEEAAYY" everytime he makes one. Get amongst it.

    Amazing coffee! The "magic" mocha here is bigger than the usual mocha you get anywhere else. Also, the food here is good! I recommend the potato hash and the grilled sardines. The lamb ribs are so-so.

    Outstanding coffee and breakfast. Had a pour over and espresso both fabulous. Can confirm rave reviews of the potato hash are accurate it is to die for. Can't wait to come back.

    Grate range of coffees, although very pricy for filter coffees and food. Tasty food and good service. Morcilla to die for!

    Great choice of pour over coffees! Lots of times there is a Geisha on the menu as well.

    Excellent specialty coffee. A great variety of beans are always available and the Batista's know what they're doing.

    Fancy coffee and good music.

    Jeff Weinstein · December 14, 2014

    Great coffee made by purists. Funny looks if you order something containing milk. Pointy beards overshadow ironic t-shirts.

    Have the Pork Belly Sandwich.

    Free wifi but too noisy for me and I was there at a quiet time. Great coffee but they charge extra for a double shot which gets my knickers in a twist.

    Potato hash in all day breakfast is a must to have, only 1 egg if u like it to dip with the potatoes order 1 extra egg

    Hash brown is very generous in size and delicious to boot!

    Cool building, funcky deco and beautiful food presentation but lacking flavour. :(

    First time at Proud Mary. I was expecting a lot more. Food was beautifully presented but ordinary tasting. Home made halloumi was bland and hash undercooked. Service rushed. Sad face.

    Ricotta hotcakes are amazing! Massive meal that you'll never get through but you put in a good effort trying. Really great service and staff are the nicest around.

    Proud Mary's is great. If you are there for breakfast have the Potato Hash. Magnificent and try one of their freshly squeezed juices. Coffee is sendational

    Awesome breakfast. Service was fast but the experience was ruined by one rude staff member. All it takes is one.

    Cassandra · February 22, 2014

    Coffee maybe alright! But don't expect much customer service. Pretentious, grumpy, and several people know nothing about coffee beyond the names. Still visit but expect short answers and to feel small

    Amazingly good coffee.

    Best coffee in Melbourne. Consistently excellent piccolos.

    Order the ricotta and stone fruit pancakes and a cold drip coffee. Be prepared to wait for a table on a Sunday, but know that it's entirely worth it.

    The wait was really long and not handled well. Unfortunately our coffee is burnt. Really disappointing after a 45 minute wait.
