Time Out Melbourne

The little pharmacy that has been dispensing cheap Panadol and Band-Aids to Queen Vic market goers for 80 years is now aiding the weary with caffeine. Market Lane, one of the first and best specialty coffee shops in Melbourne has opened their fourth store inside the deli hall, just a well-executed army roll away from their other site out on the street.

It's the same deal here as at all the other joints – brewing equipment and bags of freshly roasted coffee beans fill an immaculately designed space. If it gets your knickers in a bunch that four outlets sounds a bit chainy, relax. Owners Fleur Studd and Jason Scheltus are two of the most coffee-devoted individuals in this city. They hire great crews and they run a tight ship. The product is as good as the execution. Panela sugar. Rare roasts – their own. No skinny milk because it just doesn't do the coffee justice.
