“YUM - going back again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Beautiful food, totally worth the wait outside the restaurant (always busy in the mornings for breakfast as it is a popular place).

Love the setting. Nice service too. Will definitely go back.

The Hardware Societe has the best breakfast/Brunch food I have ever had. It has the most amazing food and coffee. If you are in Melbourne it is definitely a must do.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Went there for breakfast on Sunday morning and made sure we got there before it opened so we didn't have to queue for too long. Awesome food - baked eggs, muesli.....great vegetarian options. Staff terrific. Explained the menu, very attentive. A must go place in Melbourne for a meal.

“Popular cafe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We had read about this café went there on a Sunday. There was a queue to get in and the wait was around 20 - 30 minutes.
We went for just a coffee, but realized we should have gone for a meal - the food looked really good. They are open for breakfast and lunch.
