“Their Coffee actually WOW me for the first time as a barista. Seven Seeds takes its name from the precious cargo which Baba Budan smuggled out of Yemen and into India during the 17th century. We are now able to source beans from the Americas, Africa and Asia.”

“Named for the printing press that originally stood here, Manchester Press is a huge lucent space softened with old timbers and quirky junkyard installations. The cafe offers a focused menu, but the coffee reigns here. Generating enviable acclaim only hours after its opening, this laneway cafe ceaselessly gathers steam among the coffee coterie.”

“Lygon street has more than restaurants, cafe's and bars. Take a stroll down Lygon Street to find shoes, clothing, bric-a-brac, flowers, artisan fooderies and much more. And if you need toothpaste, there is a Woolworths open til late only 5 minutes walk from the front door.”

Community Center
“This place has organic fruit, veg and other sustainably minded items for good living. It is set in a garden and also hosts a nursery. It's a lovely spot to meet up with friends with children and allergies. There are chooks, a sand pit, vegan cheese toasties and good coffee .... all the essentials for a good morning out and just up the road at the end of the tram line on Nicholson Street. ”

“Wine tasting, fine dining or pizza café - take your pick with the added bonus of a free (and lovely) sculpture trail. On busy weekends you'll need to book in advance or arrive very early (like 11.30am for lunch).”

“Ending an evening with an espresso and an Italian cake at Brunetti is pretty much a Lygon Street rite of passage (the creamy ganache inside the brightly coloured macarons is perfection). These days, this famous pasticceria is a triple threat with a café, piazza and restaurant.”
