The best coffee shops across Australia have been revealed 1



View Profile

If there’s one thing that gets most Australian’s up and going in the morning, it’s the first cup of coffee of their days.

Yelp, the online platform that publishes crowdsourced reviews about local businesses, has collated a top 100 list of the best places to get your daily coffee fix anywhere in Australia. Businesses were compared across the country, and were ranked on the basis of the number of ratings and reviews, coupled with overall quality, popularity, and statistical fluctuations.

The interesting thing is that while it comes as no surprise that Victoria tops the list with 27 businesses making the list. Western Australia comes in at a close second with 25 businesses featured in the Top 100 – 25% of the total businesses. Of course, there is also a need to note that the data could be slightly skewed since the popularity of Yelp could influence the choices. Adelaide seems to be more inclined to use the app than Sydney – three SA venues are featured in the top 10 whereas NSW only has one. However, it could be possible that the coffee is just that good in South Australia.

  1. I stopped believing Yelp when I saw all the obviously fake reviews and they got caught out offering bribes or something like punishing businesses who didn’t pay for good reviews – like most online review sites, no longer believeable.
