I didn't have any food but the coffee is defiantly five star!! The staff were very friendly and the prices excellent. The best thing is you don't have to decide what size take away you want to get, it is all one size!

I popped in for a quick, late lunch this afternoon and was so pleasantly surprised, what a lovely cafe! I had the pumpkin soup with hot buttered gluten-free toast. The soup was deliciously fresh, not over-seasoned like I've found a lot of soups lately (so you could actually taste the pumpkin) and not an excessive portion - it was just... More

Can't say anything about the food in this place as we just stopped for coffee. The coffee, ordered 2 flat whites and had good texture and the perfect balance in flavour: strong but not too bitter. I will definitely be returning for more!

My daughter introduced to this little well designed coffee and food cafe. The owner is serious about his coffee and offers a variety of beans to his customers. We had a great breakfast there last weekend and it is obvious that even though the shop is small they are going to please all their customers by the care and service... More

Arguably the best coffee in Melbourne. Touch too cool & trendy but enjoyable with nice light food and melt in your mouth Portuguese custard tarts

Every time without doubt the best coffee around. Never had a bad one. I also always get the chutney and cheese melt on sourdough, a classic but delicious. Baked egg is also recommendable. Great value for money and the staff are always friendly and welcoming.

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighborhood Profile
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 cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighborhood that embraces both old and new.
