I ducked into Vida e Caffe looking for some space to work for an hour. Vida fit the bill serving nice coffee with comfortable bench seating, power sources at every table and fast free wifi. It wasn't crowded, which was perfect. The pop electronic music created a cool vibe and place to work as I sat and sent a few... More

I am currently a part time student at a photography school housed in the same building. Coffee breaks are amazing when you go downstairs for a quick take away, and are greeted with friendly, efficient staff getting your order out in record time. Thank you!!!!!

we are very fussy coffee drinkers. once we had worked out that the coffee was good at Vide e caffe, we found their franchise everywhere. If you are from Melbourne - rest assured that the coffee is good enough for you.

Me and my colleague regularly visit Vida a Cafe in Wembley Centre. Needless to say that we were incredibly disappointed when our weekly ritual was interrupted due to the shop assistant informing us that we could not purchase our usual sandwiches, because they had run out of bread. Undeterred we approached our second choice coffee shop (which shall remain nameless)... More

I am a proud Vida e Caffe loyalty card holder and enjoy the coffee blend at least once a day. Good service, staff and vibe. Even just for a take away.

This vida does not live up to the brand - so many good coffee shops in the area that will actually give you better service that its not worth ruining your day by going in here and getting bad service and stale food.

You must visit one of the chain at least once. Its a laugh to hear them shouting the orders as they receive it. The coffee is average as is the limited food array! They offer free WiFi, but then you can get that most places.

love the coffee, just hate the screaming shouting staff who shout in the little bit of portuguese they have learnt - difficult to understand how they are still going - losing market share rapidly
