Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

With siblings like St Ali, Brother Baba Budan and De Clieu, it’s no wonder Seven Seeds is one smart, good-looking operation

Seven Seeds ticks a lot of boxes with consistently great coffee and simple food all served inside a cavernous old warehouse. Just out of the city grid and close to the Queen Vic Market, it’s spacious and bright with exposed brick walls, shiny concrete floors and ply timber panelling. Mounted racing bikes and lights covered with red knitted beanies add some colour and quirk to the place.

Seven Seeds is all about the coffee: see the in-house coffee plants, coffee laboratory and temperature-controlled storage space. Do they make a good coffee? The answer, folks, is yes.

A small all-day menu is not overly ambitious and allows quality ingredients to do their thing. The eggs benedict with corned beef and a seeded mustard hollandaise is a pleasing rendition of the café favourite, while the dessert-as-breakfast crowd will gravitate towards the French toast, served with house-made nutella and an orange reduction. Lunch-centric options include the ever-popular double Wagyu patty burger, served with secret special sauce on a brioche bun.

The service at Seven Seeds is exceptional though. Even when it’s peak hour, eagle-eyed staff ensure that no one is lost amongst the din. If you haven’t already been, get down there.
