Recommendation by Lemi
Brother Baba Budan is part of the Seven Seeds empire—which means the coffee here is just as good. Like it’s flagship, its name is inspired by the story of Baba Budan, a Sufi (someone who practices Sufism) who smuggled seven fertile coffee seeds from Yemen to India back in the 17th century. The cafe is a go-to for of caffeine fiends from all over Melbourne, so expect a crowd. Takeaway is your best bet here, since there are only 15 seats (the ones on the ceiling aren’t included!) and one communal table available.
