I went to the Little Ox twice on a recent trip to Melbourne. The first time was for lunch and I had the chicken quinoa salad which was absolutely delicious. Loved the addition of mint, really interesting. The second time was for breakfast, the smashed avo on toast was also exceptional. The food was always brought on time, the staff... More

We loved the quiet location of The Little Ox, and the coffee was OK, but the coffee at The Pantry is far superior. Both have friendly and efficient staff, but the coffee is certainly the decider between the two.

Good food. Some of it quite unique shows a new twist on old favourites. Can be a bit crowded but staff very accommodating. Even on a cold day, they provide blankies if quired outside under the heaters. Quite a wide range of taste delights and great artisan breads.

We dined here for brunch/lunch last month. Great little spot, very popular which meant that in the freezing Melbourne winter we had to sit outside as the Cafe was full. Space is pretty limited inside so this is an easy issue to occour. We sat outside but the little ox provided throw rugs and a few gas heaters dotted around.... More

Have been many times to The Little Ox! Such a happy vibe. Menu never disappoints. Good fresh ingredients coupled in interesting combinations of flavours. But it's the range of sauces and marinades that make everything so yummy! Coffee just brings a big smile, every time. Great work team!

you can't do better than Little Ox coffee. And now they even have almond milk option to add to soy option for lactose intolerant! How new age is that?! Great food, prices are ok. Some good daily menu specials as well as regular menu options. Catch a glimpse of national media, sport, music and entertainment celebrities on a regular basis.... More

What a great little find in these quiet backstreets! The food is so fresh and exquisitely tasty, the service very friendly and prompt, the atmosphere is relaxed and cheerful ... no wonder so many people make it to this little place!

Coffee is very good and the food is always prepared to a high standard. Service is fast, efficient and friendly. It can get very busy cafe but if you can handle the wait, it is worth it.
