Padre Coffee, Victoria Market

Popped into Victoria Market today to check out string bean alley. This is a recent addition to the markets following suit of SO:ME space at South Melbourne Market. We stopped at Padre Coffee for refreshments at the Peel St end of the Alley. Usually I find going to Vic Markets frankly claustrophobic - but this strip, being new and niche, had personal space aplenty. All the stalls were interesting to have a poke around in too.  As for Padre Coffee they are keeping to their usual fine recipe of good coffee, cold drinks a small selection of baked goodies.

stickybeak cafe
1/40 green st

I sat here for over three hours on this visit between coffee with a friend and working on my laptop . My two excellent coffees (Axil) were chased by a fresh juice (the green one with apple, spinach etc) by means of perhaps negating the caffeine... no? The staff were all super friendly, the interiors are far from copycat - look for the brass piping, green-pained pressed metal ceiling and the ornate brass counter. The theme is 'Steam Punk' (my loose interpretation would be: think 1880's mad-scientist time-traveller!)
