Some of, if not, the best food I have ever eaten. Servings are generous (although this didn't stop my friend and I from ordering starters, mains, drinks and dessert) with the chef paying us a special visit to make sure we were satisfied with our meal. If you're an avocado lover you'll be pleased to hear that guacamole comes with... More

This was hands down the best breakfast I have ever had in my whole entire life. In fact, I would say it was 110% better than my 2nd best breakfast. Let me begin by saying that my 2nd best breakfast was at a small café in Hoxton, London (whose name escapes me at the moment but I will post an... More

I had breakfast here this morning, the service is below average, the waiters seemed to be uninterested. I'm from Colombia, therefore I was excited with the prospect of some traditional food, I found rather flavourless food, lacking authenticity.

When we were ordering food i ask for scrambled eggs to be well cooked on what a rude waiter said... More

We came across this place without having heard of it and decided to give it a try. The food was great, I had the Arepa with chorizo and my girlfriend had the scrambled eggs, both were delicious. It seems pretty popular as there was a line up outside by the time we were leaving.

I came here with my family for breakfast on a monday morning. They serve mainly Arepas (corn pancakes) and pastry for breakfast. The food was excellent, as were the beverages, and the prices were reasonable. Great atmosphere with south american music and interieur as well. I can only recommend this place.

I was sooo looking forward to an empanada, unfortunately they had sold out by the time I ordered, admittedly it was after 1pm. I settled instead for a Ropa Vieja Arepa (Old clothes beef) which arrived with little dishes of guacamole and salsa on the side. This was a good lunch sized portion costing $12 and very tasty. I also... More

Fantastic coffee and THE BEST vegan meal I've ever had! Beautifully presented and you could tell they had put the love in! :) Great service from genuinely nice people. In Melbourne for two days and went there both days - wish I could visit a LOT more often. This would be my regular coffee shop if I lived around here.... More
