We dropped in for lunch on a weekend trip to Melbourne, the food was fabulous and staff so friendly. We loved it so much we went back for breakfast the next day and they remembered our drink orders. Highly recommend.

Popped in for a coffee which was great. Menus are inside old books which is different. Plenty of options on menu. Food good and fresh. Friendly wait staff. Great little place to pop in for coffee and snack or a meal.
