The last minute Christmas rush driving you nuts? You know that coffee is a cure-all. I promise. And no one does the coffee/cafe scene better than Melbourne. Mammoth by Technè is one of the latest hot spots.

“The brief was to create a peaceful, happy space that had a nod to subtle reference points including West Coast USA, summer holidays and the aesthetic of Wes Anderson films.”

I can definitely see a Euro 80s vibe as well in colours and materials. Very cool spot to escape the shopping crowds… if only for a little while.

My husband was in Melbourne for business a while back, and that's what he said — the coffee is remarkable good, and there is a wonderful array of coffee shops. Wish we had that here in Ottawa! (Sadly, a fantastic local coffee shop/indie music space closed just yesterday). Thanks for posting!

I walked past Raw Sugar Cafe twice a day, 5 days a week on my way to/from work for its entire existence and I had never been inside. 🙁 Sad to see it go tho'.
