The Hardware Societe has the best breakfast/Brunch food I have ever had. It has the most amazing food and coffee. If you are in Melbourne it is definitely a must do.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

Went there for breakfast on Sunday morning and made sure we got there before it opened so we didn't have to queue for too long. Awesome food - baked eggs, muesli.....great vegetarian options. Staff terrific. Explained the menu, very attentive. A must go place in Melbourne for a meal.

“Popular cafe”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We had read about this café went there on a Sunday. There was a queue to get in and the wait was around 20 - 30 minutes.
We went for just a coffee, but realized we should have gone for a meal - the food looked really good. They are open for breakfast and lunch.
