Really if I'm honest there never was any service here. The building is cool, the food good but that's where the good news stops. My friends and I loved the concept and the fresh baking etc but......They're militant in how they make you line up and won't serve you between breakfast and lunch. I got sneaky chilli oil on my...

Went for breakfast, group of 7. Surrounded by a great herb and vege garden and styled with great furniture in a huge shed, it has a very nice vibe. We had nice weather and appreciated the nice outdoor seating on the verandah. Food was very nice but very small portions and quite high prices. Poor value really. No table service... More

3 visits in the last couple of weeks and each time a disappointment. Average coffee,ordinary food and staff that don't seem interested in you unless you are under 30, have a Ned Kelly style beard or are a hip young girl with way too much make up! Pricey- but you could get past that if the rest of the package... More

I live in Rosebery, just around the corner and was looking forward to trying mikes kitchen. The design is cool, love the back terrace and the herb garden. However average Luke warm coffee... Expensive, small portions and a pretentious crowd means I won't be back! Disappointing.

I went with my Mum and Dad (who are elderly) for lunch to this restaurant and although we do not live in the area it was worth the trip. The restaurant was packed and it had a great vive. The food was delicious specially their pork belly and pesto bbq chicken. Their salads were also great and innovative combining well... More

Celebrated my 30th birthday with a long lunch in the Gallery area - absolutely delicious fresh and seasonal shared food platters ranging from beetroot and soya bean salads, smoky roasted capsicums and chicken, to excellent coffee and pastries to finish. Service was also impeccable and friendly and they even entertained an additional dessert bought outside of KBM. Highly recommended and... More

Quick pop in lunch with the family (2adults, 3 kids).... Parking was tricky but the associated car park suddenly emptied which was useful! Walked in to see a long queue but it only take 8-10 mins. We got a table quite easily , the place was pretty busy. Nice open space, nice atmosphere, situated in a warehouse type space sharing... More

I was surprised when my ex colleague took me to that place where on one side seems like an IKEA sort of corner and the opposite side was a crowded, full of life, restaurant with a very long queue of "happy to wait" customers. Although there are plenty of tables inside and outside, but the place was full so be... More

This restaurant is located at the end of an old warehouse which has been renovated but still with plenty of the original exposed beams and building structure. It therefore provides a very rustic appearance and experience. You line up to order the food and then take it to one of the many tables many of which are communal. The food... More
