Breakfast in the city center!

good coffee, good service, plenty of choices for breakfast. We stayed in Sofitel hotel and we found this perfect place. Very recommendable if you stay at the hotel.

The girls at the counter are borderline rude. I've been here 4-5 times and I wouldn't say this if even one of the four put little effort towards customer service. Haven't eaten yet so can't comment.

This Is one of several visits to this cafe as it has to be the place to have breakfast in Melbourne! My eggs florentine was the best I have tasted. The spinach was fresh, eggs poached to perfection and the hollandaise was served 'on the side' as I requested. Bacon was extra, and cooked just how I like it with... More

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.
