Geelong Coffee – My Recommendations

No Tags | Great Coffee

I find nothing more frustrating when i’m out of town or overseas than not being able to locate a great coffee. Fortunately for Australian’s travelling overseas there are those who have posted list of where the quality coffee houses are.

I thought it would be appropriate to post a list of my personal favourite spots for the greater Geelong region. I may update this list over time.

 

  • Bannockburn Station: (Pictured above) Also a restaurant this magnificent venue boast a great coffee, amazing food and a huge range of home made cakes. It is also open evenings on Friday and Saturday. Located in Bannockburn 20 minutes from Geelong heading toward Ballarat.
  •  

  • The Edge: Down along the Geelong Waterfront at 6-8 Eastern Beach Road. Typically known for being a restaurant and bar they also make coffee as good as anything you will find in Melbourne.
  •  

  • Coffee Cartel: These guys roast their own and when I don’t get a chance to roast at home this is where I buy beans from. The Grandmaster beans are my favourite though the Drummer Boy blend is pretty special as well. Two locations In the city 1-80 Little malop St cnr of James St or Breakwater at 6/21 Leather St.
  •  

  • 63 Degrees: 87A Barrabool Rd, Highton. Really great coffee.
  •  

  • Maple Tree: 116 Mountjoy Parade Lorne If you are going for a drive up The Great Ocean Road this seafood restaurant in Lorne will not disappoint those needing a caffein fix.
  •  

  • A Spot For Joe: 33 Little Ryrie Street
  •  

  • The Bridgeroom: On the bridge overpass in Westfield going over Yarra Street.
  •  

  • Lucy Lockets 261: Located at 261 Myers St, East Geelong.

I had been down to get this view during the day with my friend Julia. Just as well as it gave me some idea for what I wanted because when we returned just after midnight it was so black we could not see anything.

 

By the time I took this image I had already been soaked by an incoming tide I did not see. A 30 second exposure showed more than the naked eye did on the night.
