Lonelys Bar is an uber cool coffee house found in a West End warehouse, serving expertly-brewed coffee and artisan pastries.
Nestled off Montague Road, the spacious cafe features a sky-high ceiling, custom-built timber booths crafted from reclaimed materials, art, plants and laser lights, with live music and DJ sets on the weekend.
Coffee aficionados are spoilt for choice with a selection of coffee blends and single origins on offer, including the cafe's house blend by Melbourne's Proud Mary, served along with filter coffee and batch brew from an array of local micro-roasteries such as Passport (Northgate), Blue Sky Coffee (Woolloongabba) and Cavalier Coffee (Narangba).
Lonelys will begin roasting small batches of beans to serve in-house in the near future, as well as expand into the afternoon and evenings providing tapas and cocktails - espresso martini anyone?
For now, customers will find sustenance with delicious Wholly crumpets and flaky pastries supplied by Newtead's chic artisan patisserie, Mica Brasserie.
Nice to know - Lonelys is dog-friendly.
