As there are tons of cafe around in Melbourne and nearly all of them are pretty good. Oh well, I found there are some decents one that is worth to recommend and here are my personal top 10 cafe in Melbourne to visit when I was there last year Sept 2015.
Industrial Beans at Fitztroy
My all time favorite is Industrial Beans, not only they are being nominated as one of the best from interior to food as they have seasonal menu changes and their single origin is perfect. One of the best to hunt for brunch and do prepare to queue.
