Arcades in Melbourne have a reputation for being vibrant places where the discovery of something amazing is highly likely. Geelong hasn’t quite built the same reputation yet, however that may be about to change.

10 sq m Geelong - Front the front

Make the journey from Ryrie to Little Ryrie Street via the arcade across from James Street and you’ll find 10 sq M Geelong. It’s a hole in the wall cafe that’s turned a daunting walk through a dark alley into a relaxed stroll with pleasant aromas.

10 sq m Geelong   Focused Baristas

Graffiti bluebirds lead you through to the brightly lit spot where you can grab yourself a Sensory Lab coffee with biodynamic milk. If you’re feeling more adventurous look out for experimental brews such as a 50/50 blend of filter & espresso.

10 sq m Geelong - Cat on the wall

The smooth taste of Sensory Lab coffee is well known in Melbourne, having made a name for itself with several hit cafes across Melbourne including the great St. Ali Cafe in South Melbourne. 10 sq m Geelong is the first to the brand to Geelong and combines it with some quick locally made snacks from Bearded Bros.

A chalkboard on the Lt Ryrie Street side of the arcade is updated with a daily coffee mantra. Today’s one threatens to kill everyone. Even after reading this, strangely, the alley still feels safer than a few months ago before 10 sq M Geelong was there.

James Street and the Little Ryrie Street car park area have become a hotbed for boutique cafes of all varieties with Coffee Cartel Geelong, Huckster & Co, Little Green Corner Geelong and Bear & Bean all popping up within months of each other.

There’s plenty of room for all of them and Greg and Tom from 10 sq M Geelong are another set of friendly young chaps with a passion for good coffee and dream of having their own business. If you’re in the area they’re definitely worth dropping in on.
