With a single focus on roasting, blending and brewing coffee, Market Lane Coffee has quickly gained a reputation as one of Melbourne’s best.
Baker D. Chirico’s vacant storeroom is the location for Market Lane Coffee’s second pop-up coffee shop. In a beautiful marriage of the two purveyors, an early morning croissant or loaf of bread is a convenient arms-length away from a delicious Market Lane coffee.
The fit-out has been designed and realised with the pop-up’s semi-temporary lifespan in mind, featuring pieces that can easily be removed and installed elsewhere should the desire for another installation arise. Subtle pops of colour spill out of geranium filled vases, while olive green bowler hats from a taste-testing trip to Bolivia sit lovingly along the wall.
A daintily decorated windowsill adjacent to the artisan bakery is your only clue to the coffee shop’s existence, inviting pedestrians to wander in and discover the place for themselves. When the reward is a Market Lane pour over or espresso, it pays to be inquisitive.
