COFFEE REVIEW: Dukes Coffee Roasters, Melbourne CBD

Some people say Melbourne is renowned for serving the best coffee in Australia so I had high hopes and put a lot of pressure on myself when deciding on a coffee shop. Mid way through shopping on Collins Street on day two I was exhausted but on a mission to get good coffee.

Location 

We strayed into Flinders Lane (same street as Chin Chin) which is parallel to Collins Street and found Dukes with a line out the door at 3pm. This is usually when most cafes in Brisbane are closing so I was very impressed. It was a small shop but there was still enough room for us to sit down and drink our coffee in store.

I had the Ethiopian blend which was smooth and fruity. Latte art was perfect and even the temperature was great when I often find some places tick all the boxes but the coffee is a little warm. This on the other hand made me wanting more!

Food

The sweets cabinet was glass and directly below the counter – very good marketing and almost everyone both dine in and take away was having a little bite with their coffee. I couldn’t say no. We had the Cococnut Arthur’s $3 – expensive I know but complimented the coffee perfectly. Secondly (don’t worry I was sharing) had the Berry And Lime Syrup mini loaf cake which was one of the best cake I had had in a long time. It was fresh and very moist. The citrus was a perfect mix with the coffee.

Service

Despite the line out the door for the duration of our stay the staff didn’t look frazzled and worked together well. We were given our sweets as I ordered and my coffee took less than ten minutes.

The Verdict: I am so happy I found Dukes I thoroughly enjoyed my time there and would highly recommend it. Overall 10/10.
