Big love for this Shortstop Coffee and Donuts have now built themselves up a cult following. Their daily different donuts and simple decor have proven to be a simple formula for success.
On your way to uni to meet friends? Make a short stop to Shortstop and pick up a box of donuts and bribe your way to being everyone's friend. The friendly staff always greet you with a smile and they will happily answer any questions you have on the pronunciation of "cruller" (but seriously, how DO you say it!?).
With such a small space the interiors do make an impact. The white wash timber interiors are the standard in any wanna-be funky cafe these days, but the open window to the kitchen (aka. where the magic happens) is what makes a nice difference. On a sunny day, the limited outdoor seating down the small laneway makes you feel like you're in a small exclusive Parisian cafe; but it is oh so Melbournian!
