My friends and I had high hopes for this cafe. The menu was small but looked good. We found grumpy stuff who were not polite, inflexible management and average food. Not to mention some high prices. Then was rudely asked to leave because there was...More

Tried a couple of their different coffees: cappuccino, Americano, piccolo and latte. All fantastic and and exactly what real coffee should be. Breakfasts were delicious, eggs cooked exactly to order. They also have many pastries available but unfortunately didn't get to try them.

This place does great coffee, however at 7am the girls behind the counter just don't look happy at all. I pass thru here regularly on my way to work, and there seems to be no warmth at all. I now go elsewhere.

We had a coffee and light meal for lunch at this cosy Belgrave cafe. The food was great and they also sold artisan breads and cakes. It was warm and friendly. they also sell vegetarian food if you are so inclined.
