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. You can get everything from a very light breakfast to a monster breakfast there. On this visit,... More

This is a great cafe with good coffee and a range of happy snacks suitable for a smart breakfast and lunch. The location is great and the food,while not gourmet, is acceptable.

We were staying at a nearby hotel within the complex and wandered down for breakfast around 10am. Food was great, service was prompt, coffee was good. The environment is a mixture of small tables (seat 4) and common tables (long tables that seat 10+. A number of different customers may be sitting at these tables). The atmosphere was a buzz...
