One of my all time favourite little breakfast cafés in Melbourne. I think they also serve lunch and dinner but I haven't tried those. Excellent coffee, even more excellent food, lovely wait staff, great décor, very relaxed. Go there.

Diverse menu with good service in a eclectic environment. The coffee was also pretty good, Would certainly revisit and next time there I will try the dinner menu that also looked amazing.

I have no idea how this place gets any business - the service is beyond atrocious and the food is average. The waitstaff are the rudest I've ever come across- if they aren't nasty to you they just flat out ignore you. I kept trying to like this place because I live just around the corner but I've never had... More

Tinpot is an institution. A few regulars for breakfast while the wood fire is being lit. They give way to dozens of young families after the school run. Many specials including salads on the list for lunch but it is the quality of the evening meal which must be mentioned, Meals include a home made chicken pie, or slow cooked... More

I'm a regular here, in the morning for coffee, at lunchtime for fantastic salads and in the evening for the odd glass and some nights live music. Totally unpretentious, good quality food and very nice staff. Also two very large room is nice and spacious, some small tables outside by the road. Sometimes the stereo is a bit too loud... More

I learnt my lesson yesterday to give Tin Pot Cafe a break, and just continue to go to "Green Park" 10 mins walk away where the service is prompt and welcoming. I walked in to this establishment, where 1 employee looked up at me, and then turned back to continue talking to his fellow employees. No friendly hello, welcome, or... More

Although we turned away from it because of a noisy function a week earlier, this night was more normal, and we enjoyed it. Although not BYO, and the wine and spirits selection was limited, the food was good and the servings were ample. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was great; not too noisy either. I had three meals... More

The food here is unimaginative: For example, the caesar salad is just lettuce leaves drowned in mayonnaise with two slices of prosciutto, and croutons on top. Long waiting times: My most recent wait time was 30 minutes, and there was only one other occupied table in the cafe. I've never waited less than 20 minutes. Simple dishes should not take... More

Great for tasty meals with a bit of a twist. The service can be a little slow however the food is great.
