Melbourne coffee: the cafes that put our city on the caffeine map


In the bohemian heart of Melbourne, Atomica has been dishing up coffee for eighteen years.

WHEN Brunswick St was the bustling bohemian heart of Melbourne, Atomica was the place to go for a coffee prepared with care.

Eighteen years on, it remains a vital part of Melbourne’s coffee scene, and its beans — still roasted on the premises, the first cafe to do so in Melbourne and around the world — remain some of the best around.

It’s low-key, unpretentiously grungy and the roster of up to 10 blends and single origins are available to drink in or to take a bag and go.
