Went here tonight for the second time within the last week. Amazing customer service where they will go out of their way to make sure your needs are catered for. Our drinks were forgotten while dining in, however to compensate they insisted we take them away at no charge. My partners burger was doubled in size (patties, bacon and cheese)... More

Was walking late night in Swanston and at the 1st look it will not attract you. It is a pretty old style decor & ambience. Was pretty hungry & was looking for some good vegetarian snacks late night and bumped upon this. It had Veg Spring rolls & potato cakes. I ordered for 2 each & even for 2 pieces... More

I have been there twice in the last month for a hamburger and drink. There is a reasonable selection of hamburgers and other foods. The first hamburger I had was fairly bland and looked and tasted like it had been prepared earlier. The second time I went the burger was freshly cooked on a fresh roll and was nice to... More

What a horrible place. I purchased a scoopon voucher without knowing what the place was like (as we come from a different state and just over for a weekend) and pretty much forfeited it. Sat in a booth with grubby too low chairs on one side and the other the side was falling appart. Stuffing coming out of the booth,... More

Visited with a voucher. For those that are used to the plastic modern facades that dominate fast food joints, you probably walked straight past this place without even a second glance. Decorated in the 1960's and probably the last time this place saw the bristley end of a paint brush, the inside is more of a place you expect to... More

I suspect this place has been sold to new owners. Whoever is running it simply has no idea how to run a business, especially a cafe. Inside the cafe itself there are now garish blue and red lights which alternate flashing - red then blue then red then blue etc. running down the centre - major headache creation. If you're... More

Along Swanston Street there are two cafe bars that are almost the same in everyway, with the exception of the location of the bar. One of them is the Swanston Walk Cafe, the other is this one. In a way it is difficult to compare the two because they are so alike, at least in my opinion. However, I don't... More

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
