I had excellent baked fagioli beans here. Rich tomato sauce with feta and a drizzle of olive oil. This was served with a generous side of toast and salty butter! Hearty and totally delicious! Service was very welcoming. I'll be back on future visits to...More

This a great little place to stop in for lunch or a snack. The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. It's only a small place but has plenty to offer. An amazing array of foodie stock on the shelves to take with you.

Second visit to Healesville in recent months and have had lunch here both times. Really nice food, service and the café itself is narrow and has a great feel.

We returned here for breakfast after an earlier recommendation from Melbourne friends. Once again, the coffee was good and the 3 of us all enjoyed our breakfast. The service is friendly and efficient and we all loved the cosy ambience, very cool! Definitely recommended!

We have gone past this cafe many times and it always looked busy. Yes, it is a narrow cafe and cosy but what a find!!! The Caesar salad was fantastic as was the Pannini toasted with chicken, cheese, rocket and aioli, served with tomato chutney....More

Pros Good coffee. Interesting menu - we had the Italian eggs with pancetta and tomato. Very nice though very filling. Cherry and apple muffin was good too. Cons Very small space so people need to squeeze past yoy.
