Anda Melbourne

Walking along Melbourne’s city streets, you won’t be hard pressed to find a café. However, finding a one with depth and substance not only within your cup, but within the venue’s foundation, does take some effort. Thankfully there are indicators that I’ve learnt to look out for over the years, and Anda has all the signs of a quality focused venue.


Henry Lay began his journey as a café owner at ittle Tommy Tucker; then later work at Rustica, and Code Black. He has now joined forces with his uncle and father, and the trio have named their café in tribute to Henry's, East Timorese grandfather, who worked as a tailor. Anda translating to ‘you’ in Indonesian is exactly what they want you to feel their focus is on. You - the customer. You - the guest. You - the invited.

They do their best to make you (and everyone else who walks through the door), feel like you’ve just stepped out of a concrete jungle, and into a sanctuary. Pops of greenery add life to this warmly lit venue, which has a scenic view out onto Spring Street.

Coffee is sourced from Code Black, with a blend for milk coffee, and rotating single origin beans for espresso and filter brew.

Food offerings include the Crushed Avo with pickled onion and jalapeno pesto; Sweet Potato Hash with chilli hummus and bacon; and Fluffy Ricotta Pancakes with granola praline. They also have ‘pasta of the day’ which changes with the seasons, and freshly made salads and rolls for the convenience of time critical office workers.

Find Anda at 215 Spring Street, open daily from 6am to 5pm.
