Serves breakfast all day. Bustling and cheerful. No surprises, just really solid with great coffee. Good place for a private chat.

We were staying in the Sofitel and this little cafe is in the building. Unpretentious but the breakfast was good ...nice poached eggs on sour dough bread with spinach and bacon. Nice orange juice and coffee. Will go again for sure

Popped down from the Sofitel for coffee and toast, quick and yummy. They have some great deals for a breakfast on the go. The fruit toast was cut nice and thick and the butter was not bathed over the bread it was just right. Coffee was a little hot but still great.

I was staying at the sofitel for a conference and wanted a small breakfast, so went downstairs to see what they had to offer. I had the scrambled eggs on sourdough bread which was delicious and I ordered a latte (not a big coffee drinker), but this was nice and creamy and I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Went here for breakfast on a very busy day and our meals were still great! We will definitely be back and will be sharing this with friends.

We partook of the french toast with banana and strawberries and potato hash with poached egg, asparagus and hollandaise sauce. The food came out very quickly, was hot and very tasty. The wait staff were friendly and even remembered our water which is often forgotten because it's free. There is plenty of seats.The cost was reasonable- about $40 for the... More

Have eaten both breakfasts and lunches here and have yet to find anything we didn't like to eat. Very handy if you are staying at the Sofitel. Friendly staff

The Great Space Cafe is my regular haunt for breakfast when I am in Melbourne on business. One of the reasons is I stay at the Sofitel so this cafe is really conveniently placed but the main reason is great coffee and food.
