Melbourne's Best Coffee?
Many locals seem to regard Brother Baba Budan as Melbourne's best coffee and to date I'd probably be happy to support that claim. The baristas certainly seem to know how to make a good coffee and the Flat white ($3.50) was smooth, creamy, flavoursome and not bitter as hoped. I love the wooden chairs hanging somewhat precariously from the ceiling which certainly gives this small cafe a very quirky, homely and creative atmosphere. There's very limited seating so prepare to rub shoulders if staying inside and the staff seem knowledgeable and friendly. They seem to be big supporters of the Seven Seeds coffee beans. I noticed a very Indie/Uni student vibe from the customers coming and going so I'm thinking the prices must be fairly reasonable as well. I enjoyed the coffee more than the one I had at St. ALi.
PROS: Possibly Melbourne's best coffee, Friendly and knowledgeable staff, Focused on single origin beans
CONS: Limited seating, Crowded and slightly chaotic when busy
MUST TRY: Coffee of the day
Flat white ($3.50)
