A new coffee hotspot for your morning hit
While St Kilda Road has always been a long strip of office buildings, trams and traffic, it's never really been a 'go to' spot of great coffee. However, with the opening of Slater Street Bench, this area is certainly offering more in terms of great food and drink.

The new Slater St Bench has brought a needed coffee hit to St Kilda Road.

The four gentlemen behind this venture are Jared Lawler of Clement Coffee and Frankie Tan, Patrick McAlary, and Josh Crasti from Drugstore Espresso. They've teamed up to bring a huge abundance of coffee know-how to the St Kilda Road address.

It makes sense then that the main attraction of Slater's Bench is quite simply coffee. While the menu may be a bit light (think pasty sweets and baguettes) it's the ideal spot to grab something and take it back to the office or grab a quick bite between meetings.

The interiors are clean and crisp and it seems perfectly suited for the 'grab and go' clientele as the inside features a bench with a few stools for waiting patrons. To further accommodate the come and go office workers this little gem is only open during the week.

Ideal for the 'grab and go' office workers, Slater St Bench is minimal inside, making coffee their focus.

Clement Coffee is the featured coffee with a variety of single origin roasts on rotation, and filter coffee will also make a regular appearance for those who are fans.
