Time Out Melbourne

More than just a campus pit stop, the Reading Room teaching students a thing or two about great coffee

A campus cafe this may be. A cheap and nasty student dive it ain't.

Set deep within the walls of Victoria University in Footscray, this little outfit is valiantly improving the quality of academic research all round by sharpening weary minds with Sensory Lab and Auction Room coffee. Huzzah!

Load up with a panino or a soba noodle salad and drag it, along with your most impressive ledger, into a book laden corner and knuckle down to eating, drinking and pondering with your academic kinsfolk.
