“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

The menu is fantastic, I wanted to order everything! So I went to breakfast here twice while visiting Melbourne. Delicious food and great service. Be prepared to wait for a table for breakfast through the weekend. Takeaway food is available for a quick lunch.

“Best cafe in Richmond by miles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013 via mobile

This is my weekly haunt with my wife. And for good reason.

This cafe is run by two brothers, Matt & Kael. Thoroughly nice guys. Staff are always attentive as well.

Food just can't be faulted. From chilli eggs (the house specialty I guess), to the Mexicano toasto, to the corn fritters, to the best damn Bircher muesli ever made & a panna cotta that is to die for.

Coffee is probably the best in Melbourne, and I don't say that lightly. I always try and swing past if I can, often making my journey to wherever I am going a little more difficult.

If you live in Melbourne, you are missing out if you haven't been there. And if you are visiting, drop in to see what out coffee/cafe culture is all about.

“Highly recommended”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Been here a couple of times, and never been disappointed. Breakfast on a very busy Sat morning, managed to find a table, and enjoyed the breakfast/brunch.

Service is excellent, attentive, but not overwhelming, food is really good.

Only slight downside is that it wasn't quite warm enough on a very cold Sat morning, despite the heaters...

“Great Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We had breakfast here this morning. It was packed when we arrived at 7.45am and thinned out
a bit after that. Cool decor, friendly wait staff, and very quick service. The food was excellent: I had red chilli scambled eggs and toast, he had corn fritters and poached egg, both really good and tasty.
The coffee arrived quickly and was excellent. We paid approx $36.00 and it was great.
