Popped in for breakfast; had the bean and feta arepa and it was fantastic! The arepas are GF and there is one vegan option as well.

3 of us went to Sonido for morning tea and we were all very pleased. The coffees were good and the cakes amazing! My friend ordered the custard tart and I had the chocolate berry brownie, they were both warm and seemed homemade as well as fresh this is a must when any where near the area needing coffee and...

Funky Fitzroy café with great coffee, and those oh so special doughnuts - great inner city vibe, cool crowd - a nice place to while away so time whilst cruising around Fitzroy. My daughter's local so it must be good!

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.

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.
