Our Conversation Café and Shop

Our conversation café and shop space has been purposefully designed to facilitate meaningful conversations. We encourage our guests to explore deeper conversations by serving our food and drinks alongside small conversation cards, asking questions like "does the price of art ever reflect how good it is?" and "In what ways are you a difficult person to work with?"

By partnering with some of Melbourne's best producers and suppliers we have curated a range of delicious food and drink options to enjoy whilst pondering some of life's bigger questions. 

We're also proud to stock a curated range of books and retail products designed to inspire, nourish and console. These include thoughtfully designed School of Life retail products, including notebooks, pencils and conversation cards. We also stock a range of books published by The School of Life, alongside many other works of literature and non-fiction. 

We look forward to welcoming you into our space, and to serving you some delicious Allpress Espresso coffee!
