“Great coffee and food...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

My mate took me here for coffee and lunch. The staff are friendly and the coffee great. I had a chicken tandoori on sour bread which was fantastic. Would certainly recommend this place for coffee or something to eat....

“Amazing breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

Just had one of the best breakfasts ever. The French Toast was absolutely amazing. Thick sliced bread with honey, oranges, mint and pistachios. Delicious. The menu is very interesting and that bit different from the normal brunch fare. Coffee was superb, they roast their own.

The staff really went out of their way for us, and we will be making this a regular venue.

“Great relaxed cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Found this little gem on a recent business trip to Melbourne. I was staying around the corner and i hate buffet breaky in hotels so i jumped in the car and stumbled onto this cafe. The owners here are very switched on and really seem to know what people enjoy...great food and coffee in a relaxed atmosphere. They roast thier own coffee beans fresh on site and the coffee is first class, as good as any i have found around Australia. I had an amazing breakfast which included avacado, tomato and mushroom with poached eggs and an amazing betroot and mint jam. I was not sure of the jam when i read the menu....betroot for breaky?? What a revelation this jamb was, it lifted the whole meal with an amazing fresh taste and the first thing i asked when i was paying was 'can i buy a jar of the jam'? Pricing was very fair and the meal and coffee was excelent value. I will now eat here every trip to Melbourne, even if it means leaving early to cross the city. A great converted factory houses this cafe and i say well done to the owners, spot on guys.
