Excellent breakfast. We had poached eggs, which were perfect. Followed by the Delicious french toast with berries and ice cream. Coffee and pot of tea were excellent. Service was friendly and prompt. Recommend outdoor dining.

This place is nice. The coffee is great and the food is fresh. I met a friend here for lunch - my choice was the Soup of the Day (Pumpkin/Sweet Potatoe with crispy Basil) and some Bruschetta, my companion's choice was the Healthy Hit - homemade corn, zucchini and fetta fritters served with poached eggs, smashed avocado, baby spinach leaves...

Went to Hardware Lane to try the highly rated Hardware Societe for breakfast. The queue was ridiculous. No food is good enough to queue for an hour for it. We walked back along Hardware Lane and eventually settled on the Affogato Bar (opposite La Belle Miette) and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. Fast professional service from a... More

3 friends - Sunday breakfast. Very busy but the staff were very calm, friendly and working hard to make the cafe hum. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. I had the 'healthy habit' all tasty but could have been all cooked a bit longer. So if you don't like the 'snot' - uncooked egg white - request your eggs... More

This charming espresso bar in Melbourne's popular Hardware Lane is the perfect place to catch up on an afternoon coffee and caramel slice or other sweet delight. After a day of visiting the Immigration museum and some much needed retail therapy my daughter and I stopped for a much needed caffeine shot and something sweet. Affogato Espresso hit the sweet...

Very busy little cafe with fresh food. Ordered the avocado toast with fetta - delicious. One issue - they ran out of decaf coffee!!!

Small bustling little cafe with a scrumptious menu. Has gluten free vegetarian options also. Ordered Sir Benedict & Vege Hit.. The corn,zucchini & feta fritters were gorgeous & more like puffs in texture.. Yum! Would recommend to any visitors to Melbourne.

Definitely a little gem in the heart of the CBD. Located this place on the internet whilst searching for gluten free cafes in the city. Food was delicious......esp the "healthy hit" featuring the most divine corn fritters. Toasted GF sarnie was above average as far as GF bread is concerned. Our son's French brioche went down a treat too. Service... More

I had a fantastic, healthy, gluten free breakfast at Affogato last month. I will definately be back next time I'm in the CBD.

We popped in to Affogato for a quick breaky & coffee early on a sunday morning. While other cafes were slowly setting up, Affogato was well underway . Very friendly & responsive staff, excellent scrambled eggs, bacon & tomato & lovely coffee. Highly recommended.
