I had heard many a things about Industry Beans. They are rumored to have Melbourne’s best coffee so naturally I had to go and check it out. I couldn’t get the idea out of my head – possibly having Mebourne’s best coffee on my doorstep?! Wha!? Conclusion: Yes.
Andrew, an old friend from way back, came to visit from The Gold Coast and we wanted to go somewhere new for brunch. I chose industry beans and boy oh boy, I’m glad I did.
At Industry Beans, sharing is caring. Tilly got a side of Duck Bacon with her eggs so of course everyone had to have a taste.
Nestled in an industrial warehouse off Rose St in the heart of Fitzroy lies a mecca for people who are passionate about their coffee. With the options of Espresso, Cold drip, Pour over and a few others, the boundaries are endless. Well, as far as coffee drinking goes anyway.
The Menu has a few of your staple items like Eggs your way w/ relish on sourdough or an avocado smash but amongst the usual suspects are delicately crafted meals for those looking for something a bit more.
I was feeling particularly fancy on this foggy morning so I had the Sweet Potato, Parsnip & Goats Cheese Parcel, winter-greens & roasted garlic vinaigrette with kale chips and avocado on the side. It was perfect and the flavours all worked so well together I stopped talking to my friends and cleared the plate. This is usually no feat for myself but the servings were very generous so I was proud of myself.
The atmosphere was that of a buzzing coffee house with people working on their laptops, families enjoying breakfast and people catching up over the delicious coffee. Meals were bring cooked in the open kitchen and an array of muffins were sitting there waiting to be It was quite busy and I would recommend getting their earlier on the weekends.
I am loving the Sunday’s Brunch feature here on DTS because although I do have my favourite places to go in Melbourne is is encouraging me to head out to different places and so far I have not been disappointed. Let me know if you go there OR if you have any other café recommendations let me know I would love to hear about them and go try them out.
