“Great breakfast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Not sure if it is the best breakfast i have ever had but it ticked most boxes - good diverse range of breakfast options, choices beyond the standard bacon and eggs. Efficient and friendly staff and a great atmosphere down one of Melbourne's better laneways.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

A gorgeous place for breakfast/brunch. Very busy so you may have to wait for a table but its worth it as the food and coffee were fantastic. The service was good and efficient and the prices were good too for the large servings. Not to be missed for an awesome brunch with a twist when in Melbourne.

Holidaying for a week in Melbourne and decided to have breakfast here on our first morning. Food and service were amazing as was the atmosphere. Recommended.

“Best brunch yet.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I know Australia does brunch well but this place just took it to another level. My friend and I enjoyed a lazy catch up over brunch yesterday morning. The staff were attentive but not overbearing, the menu was creative with an unexpected (but yummy) twist on just about every dish and the food itself was so flavoursome - we loved it!
