1 Wynyard Street, South Melbourne. 9690 9285


The vibe

That sweet spot between stylish and satisfying – light and airy enough to encourage takeaway coffees, comfy enough to invite you in to sit down.

The décor

Milk crates for basking in the sun, sleek timber lines inside, desirable dishes from neighbouring Made In Japan.

The crowd 

A very South Melbourne mix – office workers and a younger crowd brimming with cultivated cool.

The food

Gourmet sandwiches, sweets, and a magnificent selection of green options. A trio of salads accompanied by roast chicken (or grilled haloumi, or a beef pie) is a healthy, hearty choice.

The drink 

The Killerbee blend from Sydney’s Single Origin Roasters, a guest blend and two other single origins daily.

The verdict

A recent addition to the South Melbourne café scene, Wynyard has the ingredients to stand out. There’s more space to relax than at sister establishment Giddiup, and the kitchen keeps going until 5pm.
