Very traditional and nice

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.

I was staying up at Crone Plaza and walked down to find breakfast in South Melbourne area. Stumbled on this place and had a delicious breakfast. I then had to return the next day for more deliciousness, and the lady who served me the day before remembered me!

The location is great, just down the street from south Melbourne market and Clarendon street shops. The cafe was not busy and although the coffee came quickly it was the last insane of the waiter. There was no water offered or he didn't return to see if I wanted something to eat.

Stopped by here for a Saturday morning breakfast when in South Melbourne after reading some good reviews. The café was busy and noisy and when we walked in were shown to a table. However the service then stopped completely as if we didn't exist. It was until about 15 minutes later (after trying to attract the waiters attention to no... More
