Love visiting this cafe. Their food is always delicious. Cabbage rolls and omelette with mushrooms were today's choice and hit the spot. Their tarte tatin is perfect as are their other baked items.

Babka makes the best bread around. Don't miss out. Their light lunches (I particularly recommend the Menemen) are a Brunswick Street delight. Good coffee, delightful service in a friendly atmosphere overlooking the street. Highly recommended.

Dropped in to this bustling cafe on a Saturday morning sans kids and husband. Good service, superb almond croissant (I can't bear to think of the calories!!) and excellent coffee. It does get ridiculously busy (I suppose i was lucky to get a table today)....More

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its
