Welcome to Coffee Snobs mb.
Im from Sydney but Melbournes not that big.
Do you need to limit yourself to Rusell and Exhibition?
Im sure the CS crowd will recommend the best Melbourne has to offer but In not sure how close they are to where youve stated.
Heres some I know of:
Located at 26 Bond Street, Abbotsford. *The roastery is next door, at 22 Bond Street. *
Car: There is usually ample parking in Bond Street or directly outside First Pour, but note that Bond Street is no entry from Victoria Street. *If you are coming from Church Street (ie. coming from the city), turn left into South Audley Street, right at Southampton Crescent and right again into Bond Street. *If you are coming from Burnley Street, turn right into Duke Street, left at Southampton Crescent and left again into Bond Street.
Tram: The number 109 tram runs along Victoria street, from the City to Box Hill. *There is a stop at South Audley Street (Houghtons Dry Cleaners).
