    Lygon Street Carlton

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi all... I have just started working off Lygon Street in Carlton (Melbourne). Short of bringing my own lovely machine from home, where is the best place to get coffee on Lygon? I had an awful one this morning, and want to try to avoid the same mistake!

    Note that whilst Im super keen to wander down to Seven Seeds, and also into a couple in town (Sensory Lab, etc), what Im after right now is my early morning/mid morning hit... so its got to be close.

    Anyone had any superb experiences on Lygon street? I suspect it may be a little hit and miss.

    Any thoughts are appreciated! Im happy to try a couple of places until I find the right one! ;)

    Cheers Andrew.

    Best bet apart from reading good coffee where here http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?board=VIC

    My call would be go west by a few blocks to Berkerly St and chase up Seven Seeds ;)

    Seven Seeds coffee is great. The sardine sandwich, however, is spectacular.

    Just returned from a Coffee safari in Melbourne. Seven Seeds coffee was one of the very best. In terms of the ambience etc of the place it was probably number one.
    Some of the baristas at these place were great to talk too. It was a pleasure to visit some of these uber cool places and find the staff so friendly.

    As someone who has lived on Lygon St for the past three years, I regret to say that I would not frequent any of the cafes there.

    Instead, when I want good coffee, I usually head to Animal Orchestra on Grattan St, Kere Kere in Melbourne University and of course, Seven Seeds on Berkeley St.

    Or, if youre on a bicycle and able to venture slightly further, Id head to Proud Mary in Collingwood.
