Yum!

An icon on Fitzroy Street, we've been eating and drinking here for years. Great tapas food, always a good wine list and lovely staff. Can't go past the home made Homus!

I love St Kilda and when I came here for breakfast I loved the choices we had for seating. Our hot drinks came super quickly and our breakfast was cooked the way I like it. Food, coffee, ambiance, and service were really good. Well worth the visit.

We had breakfast here two days in a row on our recent Melbourne trip. The service is faultless! Staff are friendly and we were made to feel like old friends on our 2nd visit. Everything on the menu sounded amazing so we shared 4 meals over the 2 days. The breakfast bruschetta was a stand-out, with pumpkin and nuts and... More

Our last coffee is always at Pelican as we can watch for the airport shuttle bus from within and shelter from the weather. Thanks Pelican for providing this haven. Great coffee, innovative breakfast.

Chicken liver pate, Moroccan meatballs, Jamaican chicken highly recommend. Desserts... More

This is still by far my favourite place to go for Spanish tapas. The menu changes regularly with interesting items, using local and seasonal produce. Every time I am here, I always order the Turkish bread with hummus dip (they put special spices to make it taste so nice), the patatas bravas and the grilled mushrooms with goat cheese. Portion...

Places stay in operation for years a reason - a consistently good experience on each visit encourages customers to return. That's Pelican. Welcoming hospitality, changing menu and wine list, plus good staples. The crème brulee must be the best value dessert in Melbourne. The vibe is European bistro not high end dining: good for all ages and most pockets and... More

Had the best fruit toast with orange ricotta, strawberries, blueberries and apple. Absolutely delicious. Fresh apple juice and great coffee. Service with a smile, great start to the day. Well done.
