I had the pulled pork burger, it was really good and filling for me. The cakes were amazing as well and we bought some macarons to bring back home, they are sweet but good :)

If you're even in the South Melbourne area, or even if you're not, then you need to drop-in for a coffee, eclair, gateaux, baguette, or any of the other delicious items Chez Dre has on the menu. Boasting a lovely al fresco section as well as a generous indoor area, Chez Dre is one of those places that locals don't... More

Delicious coffee. I had the avo which was lovely but very filling so leave space for the almond croissants which are fantastic and not to be missed.

Love the atmosphere and service. The staff are quick to respond and so far have not had any issues with seating, considering the place is always extremely busy. Worth the wait if you are in that situation.

My family and I went to Chez Dre for the first stop of our 'Brunch Crawl'; we would share 4 plates between the 6 of us and go on to the next brunch place. The waitress who served us already gave us a disapproving look when she realised we weren't each going to order our own meal. She made a... More

Great ambience and service. Just a short wait to get seated at an outdoor table. Extensive menu to cater for all tastes and great range of cakes!

The staff was ready to take our orders as soon as we called for one of them. It also didn't take long before our orders arrived, and it was... More
