It is no secret that Melbourne is mad about coffee, but nowhere in Glen Huntly does it quite like Workshop Speciality Coffee smack bang on Glen Huntly Road. A whole lot of love goes into each step of the process, from unique blends and supreme single origins they carefully source from farms around the world, to ever-clean grip handles ensuring the best espresso pour. That attention to detail informs the food, too, and you’ll find the menu at this cafe as impressive as any around. Workshop’s amazing food is hard to squeeze into one culinary box – here are some examples: homemade peanut butter waffles with pistachio fairy floss, quinoa and parmesan fritters with salmon gravlax, French cassoulet, ginger-ale sticky pork ribs, homemade wagyu beef burger, coconut porridge, etc. etc. An understatedly cool setting with exposed brickwork and industrial detailings, Workshop Specialty Coffee is seldom quiet so it’s wise to book a table ahead of time, especially for weekend brunches.
Great interior with a stunning mural. Excellent food (try the Shakshuka with chorizo) and coffee. But most importantly, really efficient, friendly and genuine service - lots of smiles. Hoping to buy a house in the area at auction next Saturday - if we get it, this will be our local!
What a lovely cafe! The food was delicious, service topnotch (everyone is so friendly), great space! Made for a fantastic brunch experience. We would definitely go again and will recommend it :)
Wow, what a wonderful place to go. The service was without question exceptional - everyone so nice. They didn't jam pack us in, plenty of room to move around. But the food OMG the food was so good we are definitely going back. This is place that is a must visit.
