Espresso, Bella, South Melbourne

Coming north on Kings Way towards the city, just after you pass Park St, when you're almost across the road from Officeworks, you just cannot miss it on the left. It's big. It's orange. It's new. It's a DRIVE-THROUGH cafe. I've seen this sort of thing in Western Australia a lot, curiously, and always thought it was a good idea. I wondered why nobody tried it here: the closest I'd seen was a car wash with a cafe. But here we are. Drive-through coffee. I pulled in and ordered an espresso, to see what sort of skills we're dealing with.
"How long have you guys been here?"
"Oh, about a week and a half."
Ah. That explains why it looks so new.
The shot was good. This is very promising news for anyone who goes to the city or the Westgate Fwy along this route.
