It’s no secret Melbourne’s cafe scene is up there with the best in the world, and the new kid on the block, The Coventry in South Melbourne, is certainly no exception. Situated directly opposite the iconic South Melbourne Market, this rustic spot offers specialty coffee, a Mediterranean-Australian influenced menu and a focus on a sustainable farm-to-table style of dining. There’s exposed brick, hanging plants and dishes you probably haven’t seen elsewhere – think French toast with smoked yoghurt and squid ink gnocchi – alongside time-tested classics. One of our favourite new Melbourne cafes, The Coventry on Coventry Street in South Melbourne is not to be missed, but it definitely requires a reservation.
Food sounds delicious?
Get a table before they're gone
wait for food was very long - considering we were the only table and ordered before anyone else arrived. Pretty disappointed when the food arrived. some dishes looked very pretty while others were slapped together and thrown on a plate. Maybe our negative experience was a once off (based on all other glowing reviews) however, with so many great options in South Melbourne, I wont be coming back here.
Good selection of food options and ‘make your own’ juice. Would recommend the açai bowl! Good 90s tunes 😁
