Breakfast here is always a winner. Coffee here is insanely good - rich, strong and deliciously smooth. I opted for the eggs Benedict with poached eggs and smoked salmon on crunchy sourdough. My friend selected a big breakfast piled with sourdough, poached eggs, sausage, crispy bacon and mushrooms. The cafe is off one of Melbourne's favourite lane-ways with bustling cafés;... More

Ran the marathon and had lunch here afterwards. Nice simple food, quick on the service. Payment is by cash only. Was really busy which is a sign its a popular place.

Food fantastic. But very confined eating quarters which resulted in smoke being blown in our face. My worst dining experience ever.

Had tapas here one afternoon & coffee every morning whilst staying around the corner. The service and price was excellent. They have a very good barrista on the weekend who really knows how to make a double ristretto picolo. The coffee blend is extremely smooth. will definetaly visit next time in melbourne

We wanted a great coffee, happy staff, fresh breakfast options and a warm cosy interior which has big windows to people watch while you relax. Degraves do just that. Try the French toast and the BLT - had both two days in a row. It's not fancy - it's a bit grungy - or grubby you might say - but... More

Only popped in for breakfast, with the emphasis on FAST. Service was outstanding, super smooth, super friendly. Poached eggs to die for (why can't I do this at home?). Partner had a bowl of porridge with fruit (she is the healthy eater) that could have kept a football team going to game's end). The bar had a buzz of excitement... More

Had a great breakfast here. Eggs cooked to perfection, lovely thick toast and stunning coffee. Superb atmosphere in this little lane. Ate with three others who all commented positively on their fare. A great place for weekend mornings. The outdoor heaters kepy us warm despite the very chilly weather. Average cost of a generous full breakfast was $16.00 so good... More

I have been coming to this place for many years now. It is somewhere which I have always recommended to my friends from out of town. The coffee and food are always good. What I have experienced of recent times is a degradation of customer service. It really feels like the customer is secondary to other goings on and not... More
