On a recent visit to Melbourne, my youngest daughter and I met up with a long-time friend at the Pelican in St Kilda. We sat inside waiting for our friend and we were immediately attended by a friendly waiter who provided us with menus and drinks and then left us alone to contemplate the menu and await the arrival of...

Enjoyed our breakfast here, coffee was the best we'd experienced yet in Melbourne. Wonderfully efficient waitress who was attentive and interested in our feedback regarding the food. I had a pulled chicken with cracker dish and my companion had a very good bircher.

No porridge, no eggs benedict, lots of 'bird seed'. Great coffee, great service. Lovely atmosphere. Dog friendly

We recently stopped in here for brunch with friends on a Sunday. This has always been a favourite eating place of ours as the tapas style menu had some wonderful choices. Sadly on this occasion the menu format has changed and the lunch menu is no longer available before 1pm. We didn't really want the breakfast menu - the usual... More

Between 4 of us we ordered single dishes over a period of 2 hours, couldn't say which was the best dish (beef cheeks is up there) as they were all really good, generous and well priced. Service just right.

We stopped in for a late breakfast. Service was speedy and unobtrusive. Coffees and fresh juices were delivered promptly, and the food, although it took a little while - was delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our poached eggs with avocado and salmon, zucchini, pumpkin & manchego frittata with tomato and the stand out, French toast. Well worth the visit!

Pelican is the perfect place to share great food and drinks with friends. The service is excellent, with water and wine always in your glass. The food is of high quality and delivered in perfect timing to enjoy a variety of flavours and textures. Outdoor seats give you perfect viewing of the action in st Kilda while elevated above it...
