What we're about
Coffee & cafes are a unique and important part of living in Melbourne, and this group is a great way to enjoy the coffee scene, culture and networks.
We schedule our meetups in various venues and cafes.
Events aren't limited to coffee & cafe meetups & can include different activities.
The Meetup can then move to an activity after the cafe (for those who wish to), such as a walk on the beach, along the Yarra, a walk down the local park. So the activity and place is open to any day, any time.
Everyone is welcome to suggest a meetup, particular cafe or activity (& we'll include a cafe stop) create an event clicking 'suggest a meetup'. You can choose to just attend or officially host.
Want to have people join you at the cafe you put for the joining question "where do you go for a great coffee...?". Click "suggest a meetup", put the cafe name & a date to suit you. Group Organisers will do the rest & host the meetup. You won't be made an event host. (Unless you posted it intending to host).
RSVP to meetups of your choice, but if you cannot attend please change your RSVP.
It really is about respect and manners to other members & courtesy to hosts.
A venue may not allow future Meetups , if we frustrate management & staff by holding tables that can be used for other patrons (No-Shows & rsvp cancellations less than an hour before a meetup is a major reason we don't visit some cafe that are always at top of list of must visit cafes).
This group has attendance & no show policies. Members who 'No-Show' 3 times will be removed from the coffee group. New members who 'No-Show' 2 times in first 3 months of their membership will also be removed.
Members who haven't attended a meetup for a year of more may also be removed. Please read item under "pages" tab for more detail.

It really is very easy to come along to a Meetup & meetup with new people & make friends with people.
