Good menu, good coffee, and all presented quickly and with friendly attitude. Sit near the door and watch the world of St Kilda pass you buy. Walk down the road afterwards for a good slice of cake at one of the cake houses in Acland street (legendary!)

Has coffee here. The coffee was great, but the waitress was totally disinterested and we had to ask several times to place our order, then several times to get some water.

We have visited this Cafe many times & have always loved it. The service is great & the food comes really quick.. Has quite a young & chilled atmosphere to it & is really in the heart of St.kilda on the always busy Acland Street.. the chips are amazing!
