St ALi's or nowhere

This unprepossessing street houses one of the best coffee houses in Melbourne. And you can find Tomas and me there most weekends!

St ALi's is located in an old St John's Ambulance garage and houses one of our city's best coffee roasters. They delight patrons with a uniquely roasted coffee of the day, along with their house blend.

The Melbourne Coffee Review book 2010 gave St ALi's a top rating 3 beans, and it is very well deserved!

The food is also outstanding, and on weekends it gets so busy here that you'll have to queue most of the day. With winter rapidly approaching the thoughtful owners have just opened a coffee bar across the lane where patrons can wait for a table without having to wait to get into the coffee!

If you live in Melbourne and haven't been here yet, or if you're planning a trip here, then I'd highly recommend you drop in. You can also take home a bag of their delicious coffees!

It's getting cold here...apparently the first snow of the season fell today, and you can certainly feel the chill in the air. Down here in the southern hemisphere thoughts are now turning to hats and scarves, and hot drinks by the fire! I love winter, so can't wait! Check back with me in a few months and it might be a different story, but for now, it all feels lovely!!
