Once moving to Melbourne it became increasingly apparent that this whole "Melbourne has the best coffee in the world" debate was actually a 'serious' thing. To my surprise, the debate between the university students around Hawthorn was heated. As a new Melbournite I of course had to through my hat in the ring and name my Best Coffee in Melbourne contender. Axil Coffee Roasters are well ahead of the game when it comes to artisan coffee. A must have is the soy latte and the cold-drip coffee of the day. Paired with a seasonal menu and hand-sourced coffee beans which are then roasted in house, this Melbourne coffeehouse is a must-visit when in the Eastern suburbs - further proving the argument that Melbourne truly is the home of good coffee.
P.S. The latte art is meant for the hipster in all of us, don't feel bad for taking a picture.
