This has been an icon in Coventry Street for decades and the quality is still there. Noted for its eggs, they were perfectly poached in my eggs benedict, accompanied by a very tasty hollandaise sauce.

We started by popping in for a takeaway by chance because we managed to find a parking spot. Lucky us! We were so impressed we came back for lunch. We were so impressed with the quality and value for money of lunch we came back for breakfast. We live 20 mins drive away with plenty of great cafes locally, but... More

We popped in here for breakfast on a Thursday morning and we’re so pleased we did. Friendly service, a choice of inside or outside tables, good coffee and great food - my wife’s avocado and mushrooms on toast (she doesn’t like eggs) and my pancakes really hit the spot. This one’s a keeper!

The staff/workers are really nice and kind. It's a nice little cafe for eating brekky and I defenitely recommend it for anyone wanting to eat breakfast at Melbourne. The food tastes amazing as well as the sweets and the coffee. The presentation is also great and I would certainly come back.

Small little cafe that stands out in a stream of competitors around Coventry Street. Served the best preserves with the toast that I've tasted all year. Chunky, glaces orange in the orange marmalade. Well done guys!

We were lucky enough to get a table for breakfast on Sunday around 10am. So many choices for breakfast and we all had eggs with something. Delicious. Staff were terrific. They didnt rush us and we were able to enjoy our morning. Coffee was very good too. There cakes looks yummy. Must try them next time!!

Went with a large group of friends; my pot of Earl Grey tea was far too bitter after a very short time, and I discovered this was because the teapot strainer had been filled with tea leaves. I suggested to the waitress that it was not necessary to use quite so many leaves and received a terse "No, that's just... More

This is by far one of the best breakfasts I've had in the 1 month I spent in Melbourne. Definitely ranks up there in my top 3. The eggs forestier is simply amazing to the very last bite. I repeat. Every bite to the very last bite. The coffee is well made and definitely doesn't disappoint. I'm not even going... More

Popular brunch place with limited seating availability (due to busy-ness, not physical seats). The freshly orange juice was refreshing, and the eggs benedict were fantastic. My husband had their coffee and loved it so much that he bought a bag of beans.
