“Possibly the breakfast i've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

We had been recommended to try this for our family's breakfast. It didn't disappoint. The quality of the food is as good as I've had anywhere in my travels. We had to share a table but not even this could drop this from being a 5 star dining venue.

“Fantastic breakfast/brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

We had brunch here 3 times while we were in Melbourne and the food and coffee was outstanding each time. We both selected different menu options on each visit so overall tried 6 different dishes from the menu. Each one was a delight to eat. The dishes were creative with interesting flavours and cooked to perfection.
The waiting staff were friendly, attentive and professional. The design and decor was inviting and relaxing and everything was spotlessly clean.
A great place!

“Exceptional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

This is exactly what you want a cafe to be - outstanding food, friendly but unobtrusive service, a great cafe buzz without being noisy or overcrowded. 10 out of 10.

“Excellent CBD "Locals" restaurant...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

We went looking for a CBD restaurant that caters for dinner for locals (and visitors) with great fresh food & wonderful service - and we've found it!

Excellent menu tonight where we enjoyed the confit of duck, 350 g rump steak & the truffled mushroom potato gnocchi - and all 3 dishes were thoroughly enjoyable.

An excellent Henty region (Western VIC) riesling was a perfect match for the duck & the gnocchi.

Lastly, the friendly, attentive service was greatly appreciated.

Highly recommended (and we understand they do great breakfasts) - we will be enjoying the Grain Store lots more over the coming months.

“Innovative and fresh for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

We had vegetarian options (none of us being vegetarian) because they sounded so good and we weren't disappointed. Fresh, innovative and delicious. Recommended.
