Vertue of the Coffee Drink
You haven’t discovered the real Melbourne until you have had to walk down a dingy alleyway waiting to be mugged in order to find the place. Vertue of the Coffee Drink is no exception. Hidden behind some dumpsters at a servo — or petrol station for those from overseas — is where you’ll find Vertue. On weekends the place is pumping, and you are easily looking at a half an hour wait. They sell delicious brownie cookies supplied by Butterbing; the salted caramel brownie variety is delicious and a meal in itself. For those who like their spice, the meatball sub with jalapeños is great, and the coffee is delicious.
