Unique and delicious breakfast food

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

South/Central American food, coffee and service! I think it says something about a place when you have people from that country owning and running the café. Great for a quick catch up with friends over coffee or lunch.

We had breakfast here on our recent trip to Melbourne. It was a delicious start to the day! Chilli, egg, beans, beef, pintos with an assortment of sides. The coffee was great and the staff are also helpful and most friendly. It is certainly a trendy restaurant but wouldn't last long if it wasn't delicious. It was good to tantalise... More
