We are about to begin a journey of inspiration as I meet the people behind Melbourne's cafes, interview them and photograph their beautiful spaces. I have long had an unreasonable attraction to the cafe world. My coffee-a-day habit (sometimes more, but one a day is optimal!) can make or break my day. Cafe owners inspire me with their dedication to hospitality, willingness to constantly push boundaries and their ability to pleasure us with quirky, innovative and original cafe spaces well worthy of documentation.
