Looking for a coffee after a busy morning of inspections? This week Street News dropped into Yarraville hotspot Feedback Cafe.

Feedback Café 31 Ballarat Street, Yarraville

If you’ve ever found yourself prowling through Yarraville for somewhere to relax with a hit of caffeine, you will know just how many choices there are.

Almost every sidewalk in the heart of the suburb is decorated with outdoor tables and chairs. Yarraville is by no means lacking in cafés, and you may end up a little overwhelmed.

For somewhere a bit different, stroll down to Feedback on Ballarat Street.

At first glance, this cosy little coffee shop is one of the trendiest hubs in Melbourne. Go inside for a coffee, and you might just find yourself feeling cooler than ever before.

The atmosphere at Feedback is second-to-none. In many ways it resembles some kind of vintage and retro collectables store. The posters and artworks on display are nothing like your typical café décor.

One of the things that intrigued me the most about this little place was a multi-coloured, wax chandelier. If you’re into alternative decorating, you’ll feel well and truly at home. If not, you will have plenty to intrigue you for the remainder of your stay.

While you settle into one of the retro style tables, you may find yourself bopping your head to The Rolling Stones. Alternative rock and punk are the genres of choice at Feedback. But don’t worry if this isn’t your style, the music is soft enough to leave you to your own devices.

You will be pleasantly surprised as you sip your cappuccino. The coffee is of the highest standard.

While perusing the menu, you might be a bit startled at the gourmet treats on offer. You may not have expected such delicacies from a café that feels like it belongs in an underground music scene.

Zucchini fritters, pesto scrambled eggs and breakfast burritos are just a few of the dishes on offer. Feedback offers vegetarian meals including ‘the garden of feedin,’ and make sure to include gluten free options as well.

Meals at Feedback are always reasonably priced. At lunch time, you’re looking at an average of $10.

On a sunny day you can relax outside with your coffee and the morning paper. Eating inside is cosy and atmospheric; however, it is very small and only fits a few tables.

The staff at Feedback are attentive, friendly and fast. Whether you’re after a quick latte or some lunch with a friend, it’s an atmosphere you have to experience at least once. All the quirks of Melbourne come together in this Yarraville hotspot.
