Love the downstairs 'speakeasy' bar. Great value drinks - friendly staff and very melbourne atmosphere! The cocktails are super creative and absolutely delish!

“Excellent coffee and breakfast tasty and fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We found this place on Trip Advisor and after reading the reviews took the 800m walk from our hotel to try it out. We were not disappointed. The coffee was delicious and hot - our second cup just as enjoyable as the first. My husband had eggs benedict and I had a vege pattie with a poached egg and smoked salmon. Both meals were well presented, extremely tasty and not too large. Music was just right - a blend of Norah Jones and contemporary soft blues and not overpowering. We recommend trying this place if you are in need of a quiet spot, a lovely hot coffee and some good fresh food.

“Second visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

The honeymoon of this place is over. First trip was great, the owner couldn't interrupt us enough telling us all about the place. Tonight, they ran out of red wine replaced it with $7 bottle and charged $7 per glass.

The burgers are good, but from now on, take away only.
They play black and white movies from youtube downstairs which was on repeat, you can't help notice that in conversation. Only one toilet, no mirror in the bathroom. A wine shop trolley was left sitting around, weird.
