Your daily java shouldn’t cost the earth – or your wallet. So we’ve put together a list of cafes in Melbourne that reward reusable coffee cuppers with sweet discounts.
Two dollar coffee courtesy of Campos
During Melbourne Fashion Week, Campos Coffee are hosting a sweet little pop-up cafe right outside Town Hall – where you can get $2 coffee for a whole week! Buy a Campos keep cup for $10 from 29 August to 5 September and you’ll be privy to $2 caffeine boosts from the Campos crew to fuel your fashion week fun. Already got a reusable cup? Bring it along and you’ll get a $3 coffee – and that includes dairy free milk options! They’ll also be serving up hot chocolate, chai, tea and pastries, so mid arvo treats are sorted.
Feel good about your finances and the world at large by supporting this social enterprise. Not only does a reusable cup nab you a 30 cent discount, but helps STREAT achieve their goal of helping at-risk young people by providing them work experience in hospitality. Find them on Bourke Street at the RACV, in Melbourne Central and RMIT.
Seedling cafes offer healthy gluten-free dishes that cater to vegans, vegos and paleo eaters alike – and their generous 50 cent BYO cup discount doesn’t hurt either. Sip organic, handcrafted coffee guilt-free at their Little Collins Street and Flinders Lane locations.
Kings and Knaves
Start your day like royalty at King and Knaves, an espresso and toast bar dedicated to the history of coffee. Put your BYO cup savings towards a golden slice topped with poached pears and mascarpone, or drop in for a decadent brownie. There’s also Masala chai, mork chocolate and delicious specialty toasts on the constantly changing menu.
This quaint corridor nook serves Supreme coffee, fresh cakes and hot cheesy toasties. Queue up at the literal hole in the wall window that serves as the Switch Board kiosk with a keep cup in hand and score 20 cents off your daily brew.
Dukes coffee roasters
Don’t be put off by the peak-time queues out the door; brews from this tiny coffee kingdom are worth the short wait. Premium flavour is delivered with environmental and social sustainability. Bring your cutest keep cup to Dukes and watch the savings pile up.
