This place is darling! The food is delicious, as is the coffee, and the quick service. I happily lingered for a couple of hours each visit on my recent trip. Love the decor too

went mid week and no trouble getting a table. However ordered a wine but they didn't have any left. Ordered a meal but they didn't have that item either. While alternatives were available, it was s but frustrating. Meal overall was ok - nothing special, nothing bad. Service was friendly. Shared bathroom had run out of soap. Told staff but... More

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
