The Age Good Cafe Guide Awards 2011

GCG age The Age Good Cafe Guide Awards 2011The results of The Age Good Cafe Guide Awards 2011 were announced today and I’m glad to see that some of my favourites have made it along with some new names that I’m keen to try out!

Best Coffee – Seven Seeds, Carlton. Guess I’ll have to rope along my coffee-drinking friends to try it as I don’t drink coffee myself (gasp!).

Best Cafe – Auction Rooms, North Melbourne. Hear hear! If only it was easier to get to from my neighbourhood.

Best New Cafe – Wide Open Road, Brunswick.

Best Bakery Cafe – Chez Dre, South Melbourne. A newbie but already a favourite it seems. It’s on my list!

Best Food Cafe – Miss Jackson, St Kilda. Been on my radar since forever but sadly on the other side of the river for me!

Best Small Cafe – Nabiha, Moonee Ponds

Best Chocolate Cafe – Monsieur Truffe, Collingwood. Oui oui oui! With the best ever croissants from La Tropezienne.

Local Hero – Omar and the Marvellous Coffee Bird, Gardenvale

The Age Good Cafe Guide 2011 will be available for one day at $5 with the purchase of The Saturday Age on June 18, see theageshop.com.au/cafe.

  1. Of the places I’ve visited on that list, I agree with all the winners!

    Seven Seeds always kill it with the coffee – though Auction Rooms are right up there on all counts so I guess that’s why they won the all round Best Cafe (SO glad they’re my local!).

    Wide Open Road I’ve only bought their coffee beans but its a really great blend and the guys are very friendly.

    And of course Monsieur Truffe make the most decadent hot chocolates. I just love the vibe of the little store too.
