Tour description provided by Viator

Get your coffee buzz on with a small-group walking tour of Melbourne’s famed laneway cafes. As you follow your guide through the charming, narrow laneways, discover why the cafe has become an important part of Melbourne culture and daily life. Escape the crowds as you explore the city’s hidden cafes, where you will enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee and a light cafe-style lunch.

As cafe lovers will tell you, there is more to coffee than a 43-bean blend – it’s also about where you’re enjoying your cup of joe. Nowhere in Australia is this more true that in Melbourne, home to a thriving cafe culture. On this small-group walking tour through Melbourne’s maze of narrow laneways, hear from your local guide the stories of the coffee revolution, from the large coffee palaces in the 1950s to today’s hip boutique coffee bars.Hop on the tram and ride away from the crowds to smaller, lesser-known lanes that are a coffee junkie’s paradise. As you walk, enjoy the rich aroma of coffee roasting and smell exotic herbs and spices coming from the cafes. Discover the individual characteristics of each cafe, which together make up the best cafe culture in Melbourne. Finish your tour with a light and delicious cafe-style lunch and a cup of coffee, all included.
