Have not reviewed this popular café for a couple of years, although have enjoyed breakfast on several occasions in between reviews.

We had breakfast here before catching the train. Lovely, friendly staff who were only too willing to offer the cheapest deal. Good was cooked fresh & not left sitting in Bain Marie's. Best coffee I had for the day. Very good prices & very fast service.

Just had a feed in Cafe Rojo inthe spencer center in Melbourne. I had a beef wrap and my wife had a mixed salad. Both were unusually tasty and very enjoyable. The food is very well presented which makes choosing a challenge. Yum yum yum go for it

We stayed overnight after a wedding at the Vibe Savoy across the road! So we walked here for breakfast. My husband had bacon and egg breakfast he loved it very quick service, freshly cooked, piping hot! I had the raisin toast breakfast deal within five minutes of sitting down both meals were served!! Staff friendly, I'd definitely go back!

Regular customer for this cafe over the last few years. Friendly staffs, good service, good food and reasonably priced. Had the focaccias, fish and chips, chicken parma, wedges, pies and homemade sausage rolls before and enjoyed them. Busy with customers usually and plenty of seats available at the food court. Recommended to others to try at least once at this... More

If you want a good start to the day go here for breakfast. We went here the last time to Melbourne and this was on the list for another visit. We had a bacon and egg sandwich - very nice. We will back again on the next visit to Melbourne.

This café is very good value for money-with basic breakfasts such as bacon and eggs at a very competitive price. Located on the first level next to Spencer Street (Southern Cross) railway station where the shops are located, it is ideal for the train traveller arriving at, or leaving, Melbourne. In fact, it's a good spot even if you're staying,... More

My family and I visited for breakfast. We had the bacon and egg on toast meal, a frittata, and a vegetable pasty. All were cooked well and the portions were generous. Its location is away from the hussle and bussle of the southern cross train station. All in all a good place to have a break before moving on to... More
