Coffee & Art no better combination
Recently I visited Hosier Lane where I had stubbled across the change of artwork. The same thing happened again today but this time in Union Lane.

The difference this time is that I had actually gone to visit Sensory Lab Cafe as I had been told that this was the place to both taste and learn about coffee.

The cafe is at the entrance of David Jones on the corner of Union Lane in Little Collins St, It looked as though it was going to be a very interesting to investigate even though it was very small.

Front of the Sensory Lab Cafe, there is also a small cafe inside

The only down side was that all I could smell was an overwhelming sent of acetone, or cleaning fluid or something - not so good when you are interested in the finer details of coffee.

In the end, we decided against getting anything as the smell was really overwhelming. Then we discovered what was going on around the corner down Union Lane.

The artists had moved in to change the artwork. This wasn't the same as in Hosier Lane though, none of the artist were wearing protective gear as I had seen at the other site. And many of the artists were working together in groups of two or three.

Once again the artwork is always changing, so you need to get down there now before you miss the current exhibition.
