Review: The Hardware Societe, CBD

When I announced on Instagram that I’d visited The Hardware Societe, one of the comments was “the iconic cafe” and there’s something pretty iconic about a cafe that also owns the cafe across the road as a second choice for when they are too busy.

Review: Hash Coffee, Melbourne CBD

Hash Coffee (113 Hardware Street) is such a typically Melbourne brunch spot. Nestled away on a lane way in the City, its graffitti-esque exterior and industrialised, minimal interior are everything you would imagine a well-hyped Melbourne brunch spot to be…
