friends of mine

friends of mine cafe
506 swan st
melbourne 3121

Love it. Wish I had got here sooner! Love the three distinct spaces - opulent shopfront, central canteen-style space and a more formal 'eating house' space with a European gentleman's club charm...

Axil is housed in a huge space -  one would expect it to lose intimacy and charm in such a vast space - but it works! The space is divided with a 'living wall' which certainly helps divide up the sheer volume of the cafe space, as do the hanging pendant lamps. The black high-shine floor and black laminate panelling also close in the space to add intimacy. Top marks to their designer. The coffee of course is fabulous.
