“best coffee in Melbourne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2012

Excellent service, great menu and beautiful food. Setting is very modern and not cramped like all those other coffee shops. Watch the laboratory where they work on the coffee!

“For serious coffee lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 January 2012

Arguably the best place for coffee in Melbourne. Although seriously, Melbourne has such a strong cafe and coffee culture, you really can't go wrong with coffee at other cafes. But still, Seven Seeds is worth a visit.

The siphon coffee was delicate yet flavorful in taste. The cold drip coffee was served in cute carafes that look like those where you pour sake out of. Because the coffee was served cold, we were given a small bottle of syrup instead of sugar if we wanted to sweeten our coffee.

The entire atmosphere at Seven Seeds was grunge + industrial + bohemian. Loved the high ceilings and loft feel with the rustic wooden tables and chairs. The employees are a little too school for cool but hey, that adds to the vibe. If I lived in Melbourne, I would want to hang out here all the time. Arguably the best place for coffee in Melbourne.

If anyone reading this is from Chicago, it reminds me of places you will find at the Fulton River District. The employees are a little too school for cool but hey, that adds to the vibe.

“THE place for serious coffee lovers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2011

This is one of the few coffee shops that gets the full three-bean rating in The Melbourne Coffee Review and is worth every bean of it. We arrived about 11am on a Thursday morning, found nothing but empty car park spots and wondered if we were even in the right suburb as there was little to indicate what was inside. Not a soul around and just a very small inconspicuous sign to indicate we were at the right address. But lo and hehold, once we'd walked through the door we discovered ourselves inside a large ex-industrial space CROWDED with coffee lovers.
These guys take their coffee seriously.... and if you are a serious coffee lover you'll make a point of regularly visiting here! Excellent coffee, the menu looks interesting and varied.
Nothing makes me happier than to discover another 'coffee jewel' and this is a VERY large jewel.
By the way, they also sell their own coffee beans.
