Coffee and beers in Clifton Hill

Queens Parade isn't shy of a coffee shop or ten, but quantity doesn't guarantee quality. Not even in Melbourne. And that's why we dig a bit of Dexter, where the coffees are on temperature and will put a spring in your heart-rate. Not only that, but they have microbrew beer and cider on tap, and a sunny courtyard to facilitate slugging 'em down

The kitchen facilities here are of the chopping-board-and-a-Breville variety, but it's amazing what you can achieve with a can-do attitude and a loaf of decent bread. Give the BLT or roasted field mushroom with creamy feta and balsamic reduction a nudge.

Be warned, they don't suffer fools here, so the service may seem a little abrupt to those accustomed to have-a-nice-day dotage.
