Coffee Adventures: Market Lane, Melbourne

Though our stay in Melbourne was only quick, one thing we had plenty of time for was coffee. From our hotel, it was only a short stroll through Prahran market to a place we discovered on our last visit – Market Lane.

Market lane really is a place for coffee lovers, as well as the standard espressos, cappuccinos and lattes, they specialise in single origins and filter coffee – perfect for people who want to try something a little different.

Coffee adventures: Black Coffee Lyrics

This week’s coffee adventure took us back to an old favourite, Black Coffee Lyrics.

Generally, we try to stay away from Surfers Paradise.

If you have ever been to the Gold Coast you will understand why: it is busy, full of tourists and extremely tacky; complete with backpackers touting pub crawls, underdressed metermaids and its fair share of riff-raff.  To make a bad situation worse, you can never find a carpark nearby.

Coffee Adventures: Barefoot Barista

For our second ‘Coffee Adventure’ we decided to venture to the opposite end of the coast to a place we have been meaning to visit for ages,  Barefoot Barista.

On a side st in Palmy, Barefoot is a favourite of the locals. Having heard of the fantastic coffee and of course being impressed that they use Campos beans, we thought it would be a great place for a weekend breakfast date, so headed down early to try it out.

Coffee Adventures: Commune

Though we spend each and every day together and are now living alone, Kris and I have noticed that we are often preoccupied with other things on our mind, which is completely understandable with our current study commitments.

In an attempt to be more ‘present’ and enjoy some ‘quality’ time together, we have decided to start a combined project that will allow us to explore more of our surroundings.

Monday Munchies (on a Tuesday) – Morning Routine

Ok, I’m just going to come out and say it…

I’m Jasmine and I’m a coffee addict.

Since we purchased our coffee machine set-up, there has barely been a day when I leave the house without having a coffee.  I know that there are many people who can’t handle the taste of coffee, but this has never been a problem for me, in fact – as much as I enjoy the effect of caffeine, I also enjoy the taste.

Monday Munchies – Stefano’s, Mildura


Mildura has a large population of Italian migrants, and you know what that means… Fabulous food! On my quest to find a morning coffee that was up to my ‘snob-ish’ standards, a quick google search told me that Stefano’s was a must-eat while I was on my rural placement.

My limited student budget unfortunately didn’t allow me to try dinner at the award-winning restaurant, but thankfully, Stefano’s have a café / bakery on an adjacent street, which quickly became my place for a morning cappuccino.
