Melbourne is famous for its cafe society. In the city and most of the eastern inner suburbs you can find some of the best cafes ever- serving fantastic freshly brewed coffee- coffee that isn't burnt, overdone, but just right. I think my record was 5 cups in one sitting. And of course, you have to have the pastries and biscuits.
One of the best places to goto if you r ever in Melbourne is Brunetties at Faraday Street, off Lygon Street.
I find their almond biscuits particular positively divinely sumptuous. In particular, the Pinolate - a flourless almond biscuit with pinenut shavings and the Amaretti - Almond Macaroon biscuit.
