Now the hot weather has arrived, there are a few of us looking for a cooler alternative for our caffeine hit. Look no further than our top picks for coffee here; but in addition – according to our Facebook friends, here are the top picks in town (in no particular order):
Coffee Business 234 Hargreaves Street
Marika tells us they have a great blended style iced coffee.
Monday – Friday 8:30am-4pm, Saturday 9am-1pm. Closed Sunday.
Bendigo Corner Store Cafe 305 View Street
We hear that their iced chai and green tea is pretty awesome too.
Monday – Friday 7:30am-6pm, Saturday & Sunday 8am-4pm.
Old Green Bean 179 Lyttleton Terrace
They roast their own coffee here; they know what they’re doing.

Wholesome Bean 380 Hargreaves Street

Borough Coffee Crema 43 High Street, Eaglehawk

Apparently, the iced coffee is pretty decent here.
Open from 11am daily.

Kristen reckons they have the best ones, and Andrea likes that they serve it in a little jug.
