Is high tea now passé? It seems every man and his pampered lapdog is offering tiered treats and other afternoon delights these days. So it’s about time someone sparked the idea of High Coffee; enter Market Lane Bar in collaboration with Espresso di Manfredi. It seems so obvious in such a bean-centric town such as Melbourne. Why am I buzzing about a drink that revives rather than those that de-vive? Because their coffee-instead-of-tea offering comes mostly in delicious tipsy form! Your scones and petit fours at High Coffee come with an accompaniment of espresso martini, iced frappé plus your favourite coffee or – the better choice – a cafe corretto (even the bravest of caffeine fiends will add sugar to this grappa-licious concoction).
