Time Out Melbourne

Marked by the glowing "Illy" sign out the front, the Green Refectory always seems to be full regardless of the time or day of the week. If you can brave the crowds and find a table, prepare yourself for what just might be the best coffee on Sydney Road. The food is inexpensive and sumptuous and staff friendly despite the crowds.
