Patricia Coffee Brewers, Melbourne
As one of Melbourne’s highest rated coffee places I was naturally excited to check our Patricia. It’s in a bit more of a corporate location in Little Bourke, but you’ll still find the bright, shiny hipster staff here to happily serve you a smashing brew. The vibe of the place is great, I like the touches like the standing-read newspapers, as well as the hobo crates as makeshift outdoor seating. The staff have a lot of personality and you can get some sparkling water whilst you wait. And the coffee – solid! Great extraction, pleasant aftertaste, could have gone for seconds or thirds. I also grabbed a marshmallow, chocolate and sea salt cookie and this was yum. $4.50 for the biscuit is a bit overpriced though. But coffee game alone makes it a top pick. Now in London I miss such coffee. Sigh.
