Perfect start to the day!

Breakfast never looked better! the food here is amazing in this quaint cafe, excellent service and very relaxed atmosphere. Corn fritters are a must have! Will definitely go back 😊

Stumbled across this gem! Staff were great and the brekky was unreal. The Kasoundi is a must! So tasty, we went back the next morning.

I went here based on the reviews. It was a let down. The coffee was great, but the food was bad. Bacon was over cooked at best, burnt was worst. Poached eggs were over cooked too.

Aside from excellent food, the staff are exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Customer service is what it's all about. For a little side street cafe, it has everything you look for when dining out. Breakfast menu is great, coffee is excellent. Give them a look when in Melbourne

Visited twice on a trip to Melbourne with friends. Lots of tasty gf & veg options and a well balanced menu with options everyone. Friendly and polite service. Nice coffee. Definitely recommend.

Discovered this place by chance whilst on holiday in Melbourne with my sister. On our first stroll by we only had to pause momentarily outside and before we knew it our coffee orders had been taken and drinks delivered. The young guy running the place was happy to chat while we waited. We were so impressed that we returned later... More

I was almost forcefully pulled off the street by a somewhat overbearing hipster waiter after I've stopped for five seconds to read the menu but it turned out to be a good thing. The coffee arrived quickly as did my ordered Kasoundi. Despite the dire warnings of the said waiter ("it's very hot, are you sure?"), the brekky was just... More

My husband and I called in recently for breakfast. The staff were very friendly but not overbearing. We both ordered the scrambled eggs on toast which were both very nice. I loved the location in the Hardware Alley. We will definately call in again next time we're in Melbourne.

Loved everything about this cafe. I had the Affogato eggs with a side of bacon and holey moley it was huge. Two poached eggs on sourdough bread with smashed avocado, a garlic thyme mushroom and hollandaise sauce. It really hit the spot. Coffee was great and the service excellent.
