Lovely staff. Great food. Really good service. Beautiful coffee. And the cakes are beyond words. My favorite spot for business meetings or for lazy breakfasts.

Absolutely delicious brunch options and the best gluten free bread I have ever had. You need to get there early on the weekends as it gets very busy very quickly and the queues are long. We ate outside in the courtyard which was heated so we really didn't mind. Food was faultless and the cakes are delightful so I'm glad... More

Chez Dre is a very modern and French inspired restaurant, but it's not traditional. The food is of good quality and you can see how clean the kitchen is from your table. Prices is above average, but typical for South Melbourne. Very busy breakfast and lunch trade and you may need to wait up to 20mins. Table for two can... More

A-maze-ing cakes! We got a chestnut thing and a hazelnut crunch thing and were not disappointed. We are them later that night at home and could not believe how good they tasted! Will definately be back.

Chez Dre is one of my favourite little breakfast spots in Melbourne. Great coffee and beautiful desserts. Don't miss it if you find yourself in South Melbourne.

I actually only came here as a friend had stumbled across it. When I waited outisde I wasn't sure I was in the right place. But inside there is lots of space, and even better a fairly large outdoor courtyard area. Their range of macarons is amazing, the salted caramel one is delicious. And the coffee is equally good. I've... More

Had breakfast on the weekend and was completely amazed with the quality of the food. Hands down the best almond croissant I've had. Coffee was also very good, as was the service. Others in our group tried the smoked salmon baguette which was fresh and generous, as well as the toasted ham and cheese - just delicious. This is a... More

I discovered Chez Dre about 6 months ago when a friend suggested I meet her there. As I stumbled my way down an alley way past dumpsters, I must admit, my expectations were not high. Got a shock when i walked into the spacious, stunning and very tastefully decorated cafe that was lively and buzzing with people. Food is 10/10... More

Almost missed this cafe as it is of the main steer tucked in the back of 285 Coventry st, South Melbourne. But we found it eventually, sat in the courtyard and had a delicious lunch baguette with salad. Delicious meals were being delivered to other tables. There was a great selection of choices and atmosphere was lovely. Staff were a... More
