Cafe culture in Melbourne

TUCKED away in Melbourne‘s well-planned city of streets and laneways is the Hardware Societe, a quirky little gem which offers the greatest coffee I’ve ever encountered in this cultured borough.

This French/Spanish inspired cafe offers an innovative Bourgeois breakfast and lunch menu containing omelettes, teas, desserts, salads, and uniquely fused fares that will tantalize your tastebuds.

I was pleasantly surprised when a cute anisette spiked miniature cinnamon donut was served with my mocha.

It’s the menu, warm staff and small, but thoughtful touches like this which makes venturing here so worthwhile.
