What you'll do

This tour is for people who want to explore Melbourne's coffee scene and find a few hidden spots amongst the Melbourne laneways.

Your tour starts at the iconic Queen Victoria Market. A place steeped in unique Melbourne history with a ghoulish twist.
*Coffee & sweet treat number one happen here.

Taking our time we'll pop on a tram and wander through the infamous Melbourne lane ways to our second stop. Finding Instagram worth street art and paying homage to Melbourne's multi cultural history.
*Coffee spot number 2 happens right here.

Through the streets, laneways and down below we'll find Melbourne's best kept secret and most hidden coffee for our last stop.

This tour aims to be as sustainable and responsible as possible. I ask that you BYO takeaway cup or have the time to sit down in the cafes and enjoy a coffee where possible.

~ Note - this itinerary is subject to change on the day. This is due to cafes that may or may not be open on certain weekdays/weekends.

~Melbourne is a fickle city when it comes to weather. Four seasons in one day is a common occurance, so please check the weather and come prepared.

~Vegan? Lactose free? Not a problem at all. Let me know in advance and we can source cafes that use alternative mylks.

~This tour is intimate and a whole lot of fun. We'll keep the group sizes to max 4 people. allowing cafes to easily serve us great coffee.

Oh hey there. Let me introduce myself I'm Jean, a Melbourne born and bred travel blogger. I've lived in and around Melbourne for over 25 years and have spent a considerable amount of that time testing & trialling out the best coffee hot spots and the latest sweet treats.

Not only am I a lover of Melbourne coffee scene I'm also a huge history fan. So you'll find that your experience with me combines great food, great coffee and some unique local facts about Melbourne.

When I'm not in Melbourne you'll find me on the road, travelling the world discovering new cafes to sit down, take a moment and enjoy life in.

Really loved getting to take a tour around Melbourne and know all the coffee spots to hit and avoid, as well as other attractions we were interested in. She was super friendly and had great stories

Had such an amazing tour today. We went through places that we never would have if we went by ourselves. Jeanette was an amazing host that shared a lot of her knowledge with us. She made use feel welcome and had an amazing personality.

What a fun morning exploring Melbourne! I'm from Melbourne but learned so much about my own city. Jean knows so much about coffee culture and the history of the city. I'm not even a coffee drinker, but Jean made sure we visited places that served up great hot chocolates and other delicious drinks. Highly recommend!
