I have been to this cafe a few times and have always enjoyed the quick lunch menu. The only problem would be parking,you really need to have the time to park and walk to and from the restaurant, which can be a problem if you are restricted with time.

Went for Breakfast, very busy, the muesli was too crunchy. Almost broke a tooth. If you like busy venues that are loud. This will be your cup of tea.

This is a great place for breakfast by the river. A good menu with some variety and a little less formal dining experience. With all of the restaurants along this side of the river it is good to have one that is not quite so elitist, without being a food court.

Atmosphere was great, especially in summer as it over looks the Yarra river. Food a little over priced but nevertheless was good.

The food and atmosphere are just great. I love the buzz, friendly service and the wood fired oven pizzas! I always eat at the Automatic when I visit Melbourne.
