  • If i wake up one day craving for BLT, i'd fly 7 hours to Melbourne, straight to Dead Man Espresso. That's how good it is.
  • BLT: instead of bacon, lettuce and tomato they use pork belly, a shot of gazpacho and a side of rocket.
  • Amazing coffee. Seven seeds beans. :-)
  • Pretty disappointed with the service and coffee. Food was great but overpriced. I was charged 4.50 extra for a sliver of avocado for my brunch. Won't be back in a hurry.
  • Fantastic spot for a lazy brunch. Grab your friends or take a date, you'll be able to hear each other talk and it's the perfect place to relax with amazing food and coffee.
  • Go to Dead Man Espresso, order a Long Macchiato. You'll die and go to coffee heaven!
  • Consistent coffee.
  • It's places like Dead Man that make us lucky to say we live in Melbs. Luke and his team do a great job evolving the formula in ways that make it a pleasure to keep coming back.
  • Get their omelette of the day. Always delicious.
  • Ask for a "magic" you won't be sorry.
  • Lousy too cool for school service. 10 coffees served before takeaways dealt with - and then the order was random. Melbourne service and coffee too good elsewhere to return here.
  • The BLT pork belly is a MUST try!!
  • Another sceny place. Coffee is average. had the potato hash but eggs were burnt.. staff discounted 1 coffee for that.. boyfriend had the big breaky which was ok.. nevertheless I ain't coming back.
  • Away from the hustle & bustle but great atmosphere
  • Had to re-evaluate all the local coffee places after switching to soy. Dead Man is consistently the best in an area packed with perfectly good choices.
  • Amazing Coffee and the branding is incredible
  • You want great coffee? Here it is.
  • Don't be shy to sit on the outdoor balcony on cold days they have some nice heaters to warm u up.
  • Had my first cup of latte, love it when it is at my mouthful temperature!
  • try the roast of the day. And the food. I particularly like the zinc counter top and fit out here. Worth a detour.
