This shop is located at the leafy green Paris-end of Collins Street, in the iconic Portland House, near the intersection of Spring and Collins Streets.
We serve espresso and filter coffee at our Melbourne CBD cafe, and we retail coffee beans, ceramics, books and brewing equipment for home. There are booths and bar seats inside, and some tables outside as well. The food menu includes a selection of exquisite pastries from Tivoli Road Bakery, as well as two delicious sandwich options – one vegetarian and one with meat.
Since we opened Market Lane Coffee in 2009, it was our dream to serve and share our coffee in the bustling heart of downtown Melbourne. We spent a longtime looking for the ideal location for our CBD cafe and, finally, in 2016, we stumbled across the beautiful brass-lined windows of this very special space, and we knew we had found our city home.
Our Collins Street cafe looks out onto the tree-lined boulevard, the Old Treasury Building and the adjacent Treasury Gardens. This view inspired the colour palette selected by Sarah Trotter of Hearth Studios, who worked with us to design the interior. Eucalyptus-green walls set a tranquil tone, while custom tessellated floor tiles reflect the building’s Victorian heritage. Our aim with our Collins St cafe is to offer a calm spot in the bustling CBD where customers can take a moment in their busy day to rest and enjoy a coffee.
