Great place for brunch. Comfortable decor. Delicious food. Specials change regularly so there's always something new to eat. The pulled pork is out of this world. The pork belly is not that great though.. wouldn't recommend it. Most other things on the menu are delicious!

Came for breakfast after reading all the great reviews, unfortunately the loud rap music completely ruined the experience. Not exactly desirable ambience for a relaxed morning.

I went here for brunch and really enjoyed the food and coffee. Being a Saturday morning, the place was really busy but the wait for a table wasn't long and the staff coped well under pressure.

We popped in for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. Service was quick and the food was fantastic. It's a shame there isn't more tables!

We came here for breakfast on the recommendation of our hotel concierge. I was sorely disappointed. It was very loud, perhaps too loud for breakfast and our food was somewhat cold. I ordered the eggs bene and my friend orders the two birds breakfast. I wasn't impressed, the food was cold, oily and lacked freshness. I've also had better coffee.... More

Have been here multiple times and is one of our favourite places for breakfast, service is always outstanding and the food and coffee match it. Always busy so get in early to get a booth is there is more than 2 of you. Otherwise plenty of tables for 2 people or the communal large table with stools works quite well... More

Came to visit Australia from the UK and visited friends in Melbourne. This was a great choice. Most of us had the Australian breakfast which came with halloumi, tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, eggs, avocado, sour dough toast, bacon, sausage and chorizo.. it was delicious! Will definitely be back in the future!

We had breakfast here with another couple and thought it was great. Good service and wonderful food and good coffee to top it off. It was very busy but the staff handled the volume well.

Neighborhood Profile
Chapel Street
Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with specialty stores selling just about everything. The famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor cater to high-end designer labels and exclusive boutiques. The community flocks to Prahran’s organic markets as a Saturday ritual, while art and film students leaf through vinyl LPs on Greville Street. The gay community also has a strong presence here. Prahran’s heritage buildings like the Reads Emporium and Prahan arcade offer a grand sense of scale and history. No matter your interest, come feel the pulse of one of Melbourne’s most loved precincts.
