As a visitor to Melbourne, was keen to experience a "Laneway Breaky". Saw the good reviews on tripadvisor and decided to try Affogato. Arrived at about 9.30am on a Saturday morning. Restaurant was busy - but we found a table outside. Lovely to sit and watch the people walking by. Great coffee, avocado smash and scrambled eggs. Good friendly service... More

We stopped off here for a break during a shopping trip in Melbourne. Was lovely to sit outside in the lane and watch the world go by. Our food was great and the service was friendly. Cute table settings too.

Always past paced, busy even a tad frantic but friendly, inviting and NEVER makes you feel like you should move on. Breakfast this time and YUM fritters were what I wanted and they delivered, the breakfast special with trout, dill and eggs delivered more than expected. They make wonderful coffee too. Be back - next will need to be lunch... More

A great place for Sunday breakfast. We had a friendly, energetic waiter who had personality without being too in your face. Service was quick & the food and coffee delicious.

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...
