Went here with my partner. Service was not good waitress did not want to be there at all preferred to read newspaper. We thought the food was ok but that was until the next day when my partner spent most of the day on the loo. Me aswell. We would not recommend this place to anyone.

I don't really like French toast but it is great with their poached pear with mascapone cheese and hazelnut crumble. Wonderful 'breakfast dessert' The corn fritter were very yummy too but the poached pear wins!

I've made Fringe my morning hangout during a two week holiday to Melbourne. Good quality breakfast, and excellent coffee. The environment is trendy Acland Street, and enjoyable for relaxing. Recommended for sure....

Loved the menu selection, I had the Pork belly salad and it was to die for. Did not want it to end!!! Awesome. Service was good, but could have asked if we wanted more drinks sooner than they did! But definitely will return!!!

This is our new before Palais concert dinning. It's great for people watching, great food, great atmosphere and at a great price. We had the tapas for two people with a glass of wine each plus an extra dish. Each dish was superb. The lamb ribs are to die for and I would drive the hour and a half just... More

Stopped here for breakfast and had the Eggs Benedict and a skim milk lattee. The staff are friendly and seem to know the regulars who come in and a bottle of water hits the table as soon as you sit down. The food was great and just enough without being over bearing, it is close to the lovely cake shops... More

Had been really looking forward to my return visit after being very impressed on my first visit. I don't mind paying for a good breakfast but when paying 25-30 dollars including juice and coffee, I would expect attention to detail. Unfortunately that seemed to be absent, from the kitchen to the front of house staff. Firstly, my poached eggs (the... More
