361 Lt Lonsdale Street, Melb.
It’s astounding that Melbourne can still surprise me with its amazing coffee and space culture. Of course we all love the little back alleys with graffiti art, but what about those old dilapidated warehouses? Seriously, 1000 £ Bend is a coffee space and event area that oozes relax and chill baby,… Look, the coffee is decent, the service is nonchalant, and the coffee area is reminiscent of my parents home in 1973 in Collingwood, including that dark haired beauty leaning agains the tree.
As we enter the colder daze, where misty mornings, and dark grey clouds become part of our lives, we look for warm places to enjoy decent coffee.

The quality is spreading like spilled coffee nectar into the outer suburbs of Melbourne. Say hello to Chapter Too,.. three suits decided to abandon the cubical life and have a crack. I’m here for the coffee, so food will have to rely on your own experience.
My take was a lovely, well made, earthy and buttery coffee delivered post haste. The service was great, the team friendly and attentive. They have wireless here but alas today it was on blink. If you are near by this is a must visit,.. say hi from us… 2 big beans.
This got me thinking, are you thinking about setting up a coffee shop?
Is there anyone still in the corporate space,.. or is it just that the lights are on? My impression is that more and more corporate types are leaving the relative security (or maybe not) of the corporate world and setting up cafes or restaurants.
They are buying them, operationalising them using their corporate skills then 6 to 12 months latter going back into the corporate world with another asset on the personal balance sheet. It must make for a different feeling should redundancies and restructures occur.
MCR is on the hunt for people to interview for our next article on this phenomenon. If you are a corporate worker, and are looking to buy or establish a café or restaurant, or in fact have already done it, we want to ask you a few questions. If you have a mo, please fill out this survey, and we might be calling you for an interview!
Café owners are aware that the world has changed in terms of getting customers to walk into your café. Gone is the A-frame blackboard out front and corner store as the determinant of success and customers in the door. Now it’s ‘who has your café on their phone’ and what does it say about you? Café owners contend with a range of new apps, including ‘Urban spoon’, ‘Facebook’, ‘Deal of the day’ etc, including our own MCR app to convince customers to come to your place and pay you for your product and service. The competition is fierce.
MCR pioneered cafes on iPhones back in 2009, and in that time we have learned a few things. As a result we are offering you the opportunity to learn from our experience, and give yourself a commercial advantage.
We are hosting an exclusive to MCR café owners and readers seminar where you will learn the simple yet powerful way to stay on top of your social media and smart phone presence without the need for expensive consultants and services.
