“Funky, fantastic, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2011

We had breakfast here in the weekend on recommendation from a friend and thought it was fantastic. It was a bit hard to spot from the street as it was up a few stairs with a subtle sign outside but so worth it once we found it. Coffee was excellent and breakfast outstanding and really reasonable. Service was great, nice and friendly. I would definitely go again when am in Melbourne.

Weekday solo 'me time' lunch spot. I sit down to Bruschetta with ricotta and proscuitto, and a soy latte served in a white teacup.
