It is such a rarity to find a venue that doubles as a cafe crafting consistently superb coffee and a fine dining restaurant serving a variety of quality cuisine. At Short Black Café, this elusive combination fuses together under one roof and is encased in an ambience of relaxation and friendliness. If this sounds like the kind of space you’d like to host your next function or event in, we are also available for venue hire.
Our coffee is perfectly extracted from only the finest quality beans, ground fresh on the premises every morning by our expert baristas and made with consistent excellence befitting the most discerning Melbournian coffee-connoisseurs.
Our restaurant is driven by our passionate chef, David, who creates our incredible menu of authentic Italian cuisine from traditional lasagne to wood-fired pizzas and creatively matched with fresh seafood.
Situated in Melbourne’s vibrant suburb of Camberwell, we are open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner and offer one of the best Sunday lunches in Melbourne.
The home of great coffee and authentic italian cuisine
