1. COFFEE CARTEL –Nathan is the head roaster and chief coffee aficionado who tracks down the best beans from all over the world while mum Sharyn is the tea master offering 200 international blends in the in-house tea room. If you want to learn about caffeine, this is the place to visit.
2. BOX OFFICE CAFE– set just off the famous Pakington St, Box Office stands out from the crowd. Yep, it is a shipping container converted into an ultra cool space. They have won sooo many awards for their coffee prowess and once you taste it you can understand why.
3. THE PICKERS UNION – next door to the Geelong Vintage Markets and in an ex-industrial zone now converted into cool retail, museums and art, The Pickers Union in North Geelong is perfectly located for a quick drink on the way in or out of town. The coffee is faultless but there are some other menu items grabbing our attention too – peanut butter hot chocolate, anyone?!
