Spotted at Little Rose

One of the only cafes that served double shot espressos as standard.  They had either a blend or single origin bean on offer.  Good balance, richness without too much acidity.  Easily accessible via the cycle lane that follows the light rail from Station Pier to the city.  Follow northwest along Bridge St to get to it.

Salford Lads Club

Located in the more industrial area of Port Melbourne, this is another gem.  The espressos were excellent, smooth with good depth and body with a touch of sweetness.

This was a lunch stopover only and we never came back to try their coffee.  The food was excellent, the cafe was relaxed and had a nice buzz to it.  Port Melbourne streets are wide and the area feels quite laid back.  This cafe is located on the corner of Bay and Bridge Streets, so is only a short distance from the Station Pier to City tramline and adjacent cycle lane.
