Coffee & pastry trail

Begin with sublime pastry at Lune Croissanterie – arrive just before opening to minimise the croissant queue factor. Follow the smell of roasting coffee into the Fitzroy backstreets to find Industry Beans at the corner of Fitzroy and Westgarth Streets, then back onto Brunswick Street to find longstanding Russian-influenced Babka Bakery. Another old stager, Marios, has been serving coffee and attitude for 30 years. Nip around the corner to where Sir Charles Fitzroy does specialty coffee and fancy brunches. Back on the main drag, Stagger Lee's is a modern Melbourne classic with contemporary comfort food and great coffee. Stroll down to Napier Street for excellent coffee and people watching at Bentwood, then on to Gertrude Street for Proud Mary coffee at Archie's All Day. Finish up at Burnside: great for coffee, snacks and watching the world go by. 2.3km
