For coffee lovers, Melbourne is Nirvana. The city is bursting with amazing independent coffee shops, all striving to serve the best cup. With so much chose its hard to decide where to stop off first so here’s a little guide to the best coffee spots in Melbourne’s CBD.
Leading the way for all the independent coffee shops is Proud Mary who's owner, Nolan Hirte, has traveled all corners of the world to bring you the best beans. Award winning baristas and the best beef short rib sandwich I ever saw, Proud Mary is the perfect place to start your Melbourne coffee adventure.

Located down a little alleyway, Manchester Press is always busy and always serves amazing coffee. Not once have I had a bad one...they also do pretty good bagels if you're hungry.

A tiny little hole-in-the-wall in a subway (Flinders Street Station), Cup of Truth is there to wake you up and help you through your day.

Just around the corner from Manchester Press, Brother Baba Budan is part of the Seven Seeds empire so you know their caffeine is legit. Oh, and their ceiling is full of chairs making this particular coffee spot the "Insta-worthy" one.

Blink and you'll miss it, Traveller is another one belonging to Seven Seeds and is nestled away in Crossley Street. It has very limited seating so it's more of a grab and go but it offers a great selection of coffee and some sweet treats.
Monday to Friday 7:00 - 17:00
In comparison to the sometimes cramped and dull coffee spots in the city centre, The League of Honest Coffee is bright and airy making it a peaceful place to get your caffeine fix. They don't serve food but they do have coffee beans from every possible location in the world.
Monday to Friday 7:00 - 16:00
Ok, so technically Fifty Acres isn't in the CBD, it's just outside on Bridge Street, but it's worth the mention. Great coffee, great food and great atmosphere. I always make an effort to visit when I'm in town and I always try and make it for breakfast.
