All around Melbourne, you’ll find people of every walk of life enjoying delicious coffee with a friend or two.
A Sense of Community
Instead of grabbing a cup of coffee and heading back to work to see how many things they can accomplish in a day, Melbourne folks use coffee as a reason to catch up with a friend, take a break from work, or simply fill time.
And it’s not just young hipsters who enjoy the leisure of cafe life. Sure, you’ll find a fair share of skinny jeans and man buns in cafes all across Melbourne, but you’ll find so much more than that, too.
Whether it’s a labourer taking a break, two friends having lunch, a mom out for a stroll with her toddler, or a group of executives discussing strategy, there’s no one specific group who enjoys cafe culture more than another in Melbourne. People all over the area love that neighbourhood vibe.
An Entrepreneurial Spirit
One of the reasons the cafe culture is so strong in Melbourne, especially in areas like St. Kilda and Little Collins, is because Australians are all about entrepreneurship. Because of its location and history, Australia has a huge start-up culture.
That’s perhaps the main reason coffee giants like Starbucks don’t do well in Melbourne; there was already a deep-seated love for small, local cafes. Melbournites flock to these places for many reasons, but it’s usually not just for a quick “coffee run.”
Entrepreneurs in Melbourne have experienced more freedom and have had access to more capital to start businesses in the past seven or so years than ever before. As a result of the strong mining-based Australian economy, funds aren’t an issue for many entrepreneurs. This only adds to the entrepreneurial spirit that encourages a love of cafe culture.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
I have had 3 sessions so far (laser hair reduction) and the staff could not be lovelier! Obviously it is not the most carefree thing to encounter but they are extremely professional and always make me feel comfortable and provide advice on after care. I have been to both the East Bentleigh and South Melbourne clinics and can attest the same for each. Well done!
The service has been wonderful, I’m super pleased to have met Amy who looks after my laser treatments.
All Staff at the South Melbourne clinic make you feel comfortable and so friendly. I would have no problems sending recommendations.
I was very happy with my service from Steph. She is very friendly and made me feel very comfortable seeing as I was doing two new areas that I hadn’t done before. I had many questions and she answered them very clearly.
From Day 1, I was treated like a valued customer with utmost respect. Every interaction has been handled professionally and with care, I felt safe and comfortable with the advice I was given at every stage. The bedside manner of the therapists is evidence of great training. So I hope my services continue as planned and look forward to more great results!
