COFFEE BY Code Black



Mr. Zen is more than just a café. It is a Melbourne hotspot of friendly staff, happy customers, early mornings and good times. It's coffee that's loved, food that's photographed and a TV-famous building people travel to see.

Opened in 2015, Mr. Zen moved into The Block's Blocktagon building in the centre of bustling south-east Melbourne, a few short minutes from Chapel St. Built by the contestants themselves, Mister Zen is a modern, architectural space that personifies the Melbourne lifestyle and makes for a good Instagram photo while it's at it!

Food and drink is the cornerstone of Mr. Zen, as they proudly serve code black coffee, including filter and an alternating single origin blend, and a menu that satisfies the Melbourne appetite with a unique Mr. Zen twist
