Seven Seeds Coffee. Corner Little Bourke St and Little William Street. When I was last at Circa, I mentioned the trip to Melbourne and was told that this is their favourite cafe when they’re in Melbourne. It’s indeed an impressive creation. The doorway reminded me a little of Batteries not included.
The phrase “standing room only” is the only warning you have that there are no chairs inside. It’s a tiny space, with the space behind the counter filling about half the floor plan.
Order a coffee, and you’ll be given a glass of sparkling water as a palette cleanser.
Coffee (there’s no decaf) is exceedingly well-made. Even the babycinos (straight milk, no chocolate) are well-crafted.
DVD: The Artist
Watch this 2010 silent, black and white film about the end of silent film and you’ll see why it won Best Picture for 2010. While telling a classic Hollywood love story, it celebrates what made silent cinema so effective, juxtaposed against the relentless desire for the latest kind of technology. Great performance from lead Jean Dujardin, and his dog. An enjoyable watch.
