As a regular visitor we are never disappointed. The poached eggs are always done to perfection and desserts delicious. Take away breads and croissants fresh and yummy.

We always like visiting The Blacksmith Cafe in Belgrave as the coffee is good and the cakes and food are also consistently of good quality. This time we stopped there for lunch and enjoyed our food a lot. We also love to take home some of their excellent breads. Service is always friendly and the place is usually full with... More

Always tasty and welcoming. Large array of cafe style meals and great for a grab of bakery food. The breads baked on the premises are also organic and some gluten free.

We went there for dinner at the Blacksmith Cafe and had the burgers. A M A Z I N G!!! They were flavoursome and left us all wanting more. The service was fast and the staff very friendly. Highly recommend this place.

We have been visiting the Chocolate Sensation Patisserie ever since it opened its (much smaller) doors. We have never been disappointed with the quality of the food and also coffee there. We have been there for breakfast, morning coffees and also lunch + have taken out their delicious breads and cakes. Cannot fault them and in this rather miserable Melbourne... More

I've tried this place for breakfast twice now. First time it was soggy and tasteless. Went back when we saw it was renamed and thought maybe the food had gotten better. No such luck. I had eggs,bacon and the usual sides. I just don't see how it could be so tasteless. All the salt in the world couldn't give it... More

I think I'm more upset at the way we were treated more than anything. We are locals and now that the business is operating under a new name "The Blacksmith", we thought we would try something new today. I was lining up for a good 10 minutes in front of the register before I had to ask if I could... More

Great for brekky, good for lunch, and perfect for coffee anytime. An awesome pastry selection, and their breads are as good as you will find anywhere. I only have one criticism, their Hollandaise has just too much lemon (while Benson's has too little, perhaps they should split the difference!) Burger nights offer an eclectic selection with a burger for every... More

Stopped for coffee and saw the amazing cakes and tarts they made in the onsite bakery/ patisserie. Salted caramel tart was amazing. We bought some organic sourdough and took it home, what a find. 6 out of 5 it was that good
