The Best Coffee Places in Australia Revealed

Attention Coffee Lovers. Want to know the most popular spots around the country to get your caffeine fix? You’re in luck. A new survey by Yelp has just revealed the names of Australia’s Top 100 coffee places.

Yelp is an app that publishes crowdsourced reviews about various local businesses. From in-depth reviews to photos and more, Yelp has a lot of data about the coffee preferences of Aussies.

To determine the list, the data science brainiacs at Yelp analysed which coffee places were the most popular and well-reviewed. They compared businesses from across the country using a ranking that considered total ratings and number of reviews - while also accounting for quality, popularity, and statistical fluctuations.

So who made the cut? Drum roll please.

Melbourne already has a reputation as having some of Australia’s yummiest coffee, and this year was no exception. Victoria has the most cafes in the Top 100 list (27 out of 100) and Patricia Coffee Brewers in Melbourne’s CBD took out the top spot. 

"It was also the top Melbourne cafe last year, so we reckon they are dominant", Yelp spokesperson Nick Lembo told,"and I do love their coffee!"

The other interesting finding was just how much good coffee (and food in general) has skyrocketed in Western Australia. 

“We also saw it with our Top 100 Places to Eat list as well earlier this year, with WA ranking much higher than you'd expect based on size of their population,” said Lembo.
