“Shockingly bad, every time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Work locally, have been there twice and my work mates all agree - pretty rubbish. Establishment looks beautiful inside and out. Food is barely adequate , ostentatious and over priced. Pretty insulting really for the prices they charge. Second experience: got a takeaway coffee - they used milk which was off! Nope. If on St Kilda Rd, try Depot De Pain at The Blackman Hotel for a good cafe or Cafe Safi for an amazing lunch.

“Very nice indeed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Myself and a friend go here for lunch on many occasions. The portions are a little on the small side but I like a light lunch. The mini burgers are really good and they're served with proper chips.

“Yum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Great staff, great food, great service. I would have thought that this quality establishment would have only been found attached to a 5 star upmarket CBD hotel. Just plain brilliant.

“One of Shannon Bennet's least expensive cafes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

Well sited on a busy intersection in St Kilda Road, a beautiful boulevard out from the city. Sit at long tables to share. Great selection of special cakes, and coffees.

“Good burgers still.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Still love the Wagyu burgers and a cold frosty pint at midday. They haven't dropped the ball yet. Food is still worth the wait at lunchtime during a busy work day.
