“Quirky little pit stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Popped in with friends for a few drinks & snacks while exploring Southgate enroute to Flinders Street station. Serve drinks, lunch, dinner & snacks. For something that little bit different, quirky, cute with fun atmosphere (and lots of smiles from staff) mixed with great photo opportunities, take a rest here!!

“Perfect Little Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

I've been there twice when I was in Melbourne on business. Only stopped in for a drink (what IS the name of the hard cider they serve) and both times it was about dusk and in the middle of winter. I can only say that the cider, the location, and the sunset pictures I took made it a memorable experience both times.

“Unique position, fun times.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Who could resist a bar/restaurant smack in the middle of the Yarra River? We pulled in for a sunset drink on a Sunday and found it lively, pumping out (mostly) great music and offering great views. The beverages were well priced, the staff were friendly and clearly having fun. A top spot for a quick drink or maybe a feed.

“Hip-N-Groove”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Loved the recycled theme of this little cafe in the middle of the Yarralin River. Seats were made from beer kegs, several other pieces of furniture were created from Pallets. The tasting plate was amazing value.
