A must try

This place is one of the staples for any trip to Melbourne. Great coffee and amazing food. I've only ever visited for breakfast, so I'd recommend the green eggs or the baked Spanish thing with chorizo and olives.

Tapas the way it's meant to be! Nice atmosphere, non-pushy service. Great food, excellent 2K10 Shiraz from Barosa. The tapas were both great in taste as well as in amount of food. We simply loved it. Bill just over 100 AU$, including a bottle and two extra glasses of the Shiraz. Excellent value for money!

if these reviews are right they have written them, themselves! A few days ago I visited to get two morning coffee's, I am from Melbourne, work in the cbd and know what good coffee is, they were hands down the worst coffee's we have ever had. My long black was in a tiny cup, half full, bitter, and I saw... More

Tucked away in Degraves Street, Melbourne CBD, this well established cafe is worth the stop. We came in for breakfast to build some energy for a big day cruising the city - and the food doesn't disappoint. A must have is the Baked Spanish Eggs, this was one of the nicest dishes we've had for breakfast anywhere. The guys are... More

Like many cafes in Melbourne the coffee here is excellent, always busy and a good vibe if you don,t mind the noise.

Had dinner to catch up with some old friends on a wet evening. Food was lovely. My fork and glass could have been washed better. I liked the feel of the restaurant and would go here again if someone wanted to. Not sure about the paper cups for water but I guess it added to the charm. Make sure you... More

On a wet Anzac Day, we went there for brunch. It was very crowded but cold and wet outside so we waited for a table inside. It was very trendy with old movie theatre seats and not much room between tables.It is also difficult to read the blackboard menu unless you are facing outside. It was warm and cosy inside... More

This place makes a fantastic latte. We also had breakfast but the eggs were overlooked and there was no butter for the toast. Very popular and hard to get a table but the staff were excellent

It's a fun introduction to the start of the city once you leave the station. The Street itself is full of atmosphere and life, so excellent location. The food was a little pricey for what it was. The tables were tiny and the little stools not very comfortable. However, the coffee was nice and it may be a place to... More

Stopped here for breakfast. Had eggs benedict and the big breakfast. Both were good. Coffee was delicious but too small!! One mouthful and it was gone. I know this might be the trendy thing but seriously get bigger cups.
