This is a local institution. I go almost every Saturday for breakfast. The coffee is hit and miss, but the menu is good, and the blackboard specials are frequently updated. Prices are a little high, but I suppose that reflects the inner suburb price range these days.

Impeccable food. Had a to-die-for breakfast with a friend who lives nearby. The meal was great, coffee also very good. Could easily of had most things on the menu as they have added extra goodness on most plates. However, my friend and i sat outside, and we weren't served for a very long time. The boss/managers seemed lovely but the... More

I was taken here by a family friend on the way back from healesville sanctuary. we sat in the sit down restaurant area at the back. I can honestly say that the flavours in the meals were delicious. 3 courses later and very comfortably full, but not carb overloaded, a very happy customer!

I asked for maple syrup, which surprisingly didn't come with the meal. Coffee is good, but the most expensive I've found in Melbourne, service is hit and miss, stood for over... More

My friend suggested a late brekky at this delightful restaurant hidden away in Clifton Hill. We had a excellent meal with relaxed atmosphere. Food was well prepared and good quality. Try this for something deliciously different.

This cafe just goes from strength to strength. They have recently changed hands and it's amazing that while the food started out fantastic with the founding owner (2 owners ago) and each owner has built on it and improved the food so now it's outstanding, and so reasonable. The only thing that is stopping the cafe from getting 5 stars... More

A small cafe that epitomizes the local cafe scene. Friendly staff, good food, the place where Clifton Hill residents can be found on weekends. Try the mixed berry smoothy for a meal in itself.
