Orient Expresso Cafe

Published July 20th 2011
Not everybody likes puns, but you have to at least appreciate the thought that went into naming this little cafe in Mont Albert. The walls of the Orient Expresso are hung with vintage railway posters, most from either the Orient Express or the London Underground. This is fitting, given that the cafe is located right next to Mont Albert railway station.

Orient Expresso Counter
There are many delicious cakes and biscuits available at the Orient Expresso

Word games aside, this easy-to-reach cafe is a pleasant place to stop off for a coffee or toasted sandwich, or to meet up with friends. The service is fairly slow, particularly at peak times, however the food is made to order and the coffee is fair trade. There are even toy trains for the kids to play with while you drink your morning pick-me-up.

Orient Expresso Customers
The cafe is small but light-filled

The Orient Expresso is situated at 17 Hamilton Street, Mont Albert. Hamilton Street is a small, quaint street full of little boutiques, bakeries, and opportunity shops. It is clearly a hit with the locals. When you've finished your coffee at The Orient Expresso, you can browse the boutiques, grab a savoury roll, or hunt for a bargain in the op shops.

Orient Expresso Outside
The cafe provides blankets to customers who want to sit outside

The Orient Expresso is open Monday to Saturday, 8:00 am until about 4:30 pm. If you're after a lazy Saturday morning in Melbourne's East, it is well worth a visit.

Why? The cutest cafe on the Belgrave/Lilydale line
When: 8 am - 4:30 pm Monday - Saturday
Where: 17 Hamilton St, Mont Albert, VIC
Cost: Coffees are $3.20
Worst cafe we have ever been to. Food is very average, and is overpriced for the low level of quality offered. Service is equally hopeless, run by a few youths who seem vague and disinterested. Save your money and go somewhere else...go to Watts Cooking in Surrey Hills (5mins away) and get TOP quality food, top service at a great price!
