Have you Bean to Melbourne & discovered it's café culture?

Melbourne is Australia's second largest city, and the capital of the south-eastern state of Victoria, located at the head of Port Phillip Bay. Melbourne is often called Australia’s cultural capital, with Victorian-era architecture, extensive shopping, museums, galleries, theatres, and large parks and gardens. Its 4-million residents are both multicultural and sports-mad

Google "Melbourne" and you will understand why coffee is synonymous with this city.
According to recent reports from BIS Shrapnel (Economic Forecaster), Australians are drinking coffee at an enormous rate. Apparently consuming roughly 2.4 kgs per person a year, a sum which has doubled in the last 30 years. Melbourne first embraced the European coffee culture in the 1960's and the love affair with coffee has not stopped. Melbourne boasts superb coffee shops throughout the CBD and suburbs......
Errol Street in North Melbourne is well known as a coffee hub with many coffee shops and cafes. Just 3 klms from the actual city centre of Melbourne it is within easy reach by walking or tram. We used to live here in North Melbourne and on a recent visit I just had to go there for lunch!  After the Potatoe and Leek soup, I only managed to have an Iced Coffee, something I had not had for a very long time!
 ERROL'S CAFE & RESTAURANT is a modern eatery in the heart of North Melbourne's boutique shopping strip. They pride themselves on great coffee, homemade pastries and other delectable sweets. 

yes, scrumptiously delicious!!
