Liar Liar is an oasis of very good coffee in the otherwise starved Hawthorn. Started by a group of Western Australians championing Perth’s 5 Senses coffee, this cafe quickly became a destination known for the passionate approach to coffee.

The coffee offering is strong, and there is always a diverse selection to chose from. They use both Five Senses and St Ali roasts and offer a mix of blends and single origins through either the espresso machine, clover or syphon – all notably different drinks.

Liar Liar is yet another Melbourne cafe where you may find yourself waiting for a seat on the weekend – and its location means that it has its fair share of mothers with prams – but the coffee and extensive food menu make it worth the wait.
