Open on a Sunday. Great value. Good coffee for a diner. Excellent bacon, eggs and chorizo. Old style diner that knows what to serve at a fair price

After a hard day's shopping, I stumbled across this little diner at 145 Swanston Street. I was looking through the glass counter of some of the food that was on order and I saw the Falafel Wraps and the helpful man behind the counter said everyone raved over them so I decided to try one. I was seated in one... More

We went there twice, and both times we had a great meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant, and they adult milkshakes. The staff are very friendly.

Went here for a quick meal, the food was basic but very good. The service was excellent, the staff were attentive, friendly and efficient. If you want a simple meal in a hurry this place is perfect.

I went to this place on a Sunday evening when I needed a quick bit to eat. The décor is not fabulous and my expectations were low, however I got a great value meal and the service was wonderful. This place is a real little gem.

I have eaten here several times on my recent trip to Melbourne. All other meals were excellent and reasonably priced. However my last meal was below my expectations. The milk shake drink I ordered was I incorrectly flavoured. When I went to pay I was short changed by paying in cash. I supposed the extra goes under the table to... More

I found this place last time I was in Melbourne, just before Christmas in 2012. I was wandering around window shopping and looking for somewhere interesting for breakfast, and thought I'd give this place a try. Food I ordered the eggs Benedict and a vanilla latte. The eggs would have just been a simple bacon and egg on English muffins... More

Our first meal when we reached Melbourne, just minutes away from the hotel. 50s deco, really interesting and cozy. Great selection of food choices and we ordered a wrap, burger and wings! Lovely!

Had previously visited this diner about 5 years ago and thought it great then. Trying to find somewhere with a teenager in tow was difficult and on that night didn't want to pay $35 that other places wanted for a main course. We settle on this diner because of past experiences there. I had a piece of grilled fish and... More

It's a cafe or diner rather than a restaurant. We called in at 5.00am after a long and heavy night and ordered a hamburger, a souvlaki and pancakes respectively. Even at that hour the food was well prepared and fresh. I had the souvlaki and it wan't the best late night, post booze up meal I've ever had but the... More
