The Spot to Stop for Coffee at Federation Square
If you're in town near Federation Square and need a hot chocolate or coffee, this is the place to stop. My daughter said they make the best hot chocolate she's ever had. They sell European hot chocolate including chilli, hazelnut, raspberry and mint.
Dine with birds at a city cafe
I will remember In a Rush café because of the tiny sparrows flying around the tables that perched very close to us. The undercover outdoor seats are perfect all year round.
In a Rush Cafe has several locations but we frequent the one at Federation Square. This is right near the galleries and much free entertainment, so it's a perfect place to meet and greet friends and family.
Ironically, despite the name, they are not the fastest coffee makers, but then again, they are usually quite busy and make a damn good cuppa.
I confess with some regret that we have never eaten food there but we have admired it many times. If you're looking for something hot and nutritious, they have a number of healthy options like vegetarian lentils, soups and hearty stews. They also have a host of fabulous looking enormous sandwiches, roti wraps, paninis and salads. They sell an egg and bacon muffin for an unbelievable $2.50 and they are now fully licensed.
Piled high with nutritious favorites
In A Rush are committed to providing healthy, delicious and interesting fast food, at an affordable price. The owners strive to continually surprise and delight their customers with our ever-changing range of unique and nutritious take away and dine-in meals.
Hot Food brewing
The chefs make most of the meals from scratch. Their famous soup range uses all fresh, natural, and preservative free ingredients. They also stock a vast range of gluten and dairy-free soups – why should anyone miss out?
They pride themselves on quality, efficiency, innovation, customer service and value for money. They must be doing something right as they have tens of thousands of customers each week. In a Rush is an Ethical Community Based Café that provides rich, wholesome soup to the homeless. In 2015 they served thousands of nourishing meals to the hungry.
They use only the finest beans sourced ethically via Di Bella Coffee's green bean buying program My Crop to Cup – an initiative that directly supports farming communities through employment, healthcare, and education.
In A Rush originated from the belief that fast food truly can be both delicious and healthy. They started in a small, bustling cafe in one of Melbourne's most iconic laneways, run by George Paraskevopoulos, Ali Aziz and their team. Their menu has quickly become popular for its wholesome Middle Eastern and Mediterranean meals.
Dine inside or outdoors
In A Rush is now a thriving family of stores with an eclectic and exciting menu. Situated in the heart of Melbourne's CBD their commercial kitchen is operated by professional chefs.
They have Nineteen other locations in the city, for example:
