coffee list

Here's a list of a few coffee places that I like to go to. I've given my reasons here.
1) Tramazini- North Melbourne. It is right outside the number 57 tram stop. Across the road is Hotel Miami. The ambience is really inviting. The lady that served me was very friendly. They do fair trade coffees and drinks. I had a medium soy hot chocolate ($5) from them and loved it. If ever you are staying in Hotel Miami and are waiting for the tram you should come by.

2) Cafe Stax- great fair trade coffees at a low price. All the meals are under $15. It appeals very much to uni students such as myself.

3) Max Brenners- I'm a bit of a chocoholic myself. Even though this place is very expensive ($16-$25), it is worth a visit for all of you chocoholics out there. There are decadent chocolate pizzas, make your own chocolate drinks (see diagram), chocolate shakes and smoothies etc. And they also do a fondue for two ($16). This is really great for a cold winters day in Melbourne.
4) Chokolait- This place is hidden away in Royal Arcade, but it is sure popular with all the locals. Here you can buy handmade chocolates as well as hot chocolate ($6-$7). They also do really big servings of cake ($9.50 per piece) and you'd have to share the cake with someone. Last time I was there, I couldn't finish my Pavlova.

5) San Churros- This is a Spanish chocolate shop/cafe. Here you can buy a chilli hot chocolate ($5.50-$6.50) and some churros ($8) to warm you up on a cold winters day. They do really great chilli hot chocolate to wash away your winter blues. They often do have free coffee promotions so if you do like them on Facebook and Twitter you will be in the know. And if you join Unisquare.me then you can get a free hot drink and truffle for $2


6) Brunettis @ Myer- This is a lovely Italian place situated right in the heart of Myer. Here you can take a break from all the shopping and buy a nice coffee/Italian hot chocolate ($3-$6) for yourself. You can also sample some of the cakes that they have ($10- $15 for 4 cakes/pastries) or have lunch here ($15-$25)

7) Roule Galatte @ Rebecca Walk- This is a tiny little cafe, situated right in the heart of the city. This is
 near Degraves st and Flinders st station. Here they do crepes for ($4-$14). You can choose between savoury or sweet crepes and they are very filling. They also serve coffees, not sure about the price though



















8) Puckle st cafe- low price and great on quality and size. The lady there is lovely,but hardly speaks much English.. You can't go wrong there. $5 for a salad roll and $4.50 for an iced chocolate. $4 for a hot chocolate.

9) Invita @the Queen victoria Market
This cafe is vegan and I love their healthy soy hot chocolates. Who cares about the price because it is sooo darn good! I can get my salad fix here as well as my chocolate fix! And they do good teas too!
