“Well worth the walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

After a bit of directional dyslexia on a wet morning we found this cafe after a recommendation and worth the walk it was.
Five of us chose four different breakfast dishes and everyone was more than happy with the food and service.
A real treat and worth seeking out. Best breakfast I have ever had.

“What an amazing find!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

Found this place whilst looking for another and so glad I did. Long queues out the front are always a good sign in my opinion, so my friend and I lined up and got a great spot.

The food there is very tasty and well presented. The wait staff amazingly friendly and generous of their time.

I will certainly be back and spread the word among my Daylesford friends who are used to great food and good service.

“Best cafe ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Amazing - went for our first day breakfast in Melbourne, and then went every day because there was so much left to try on the menu. Really inventive brunch food, every dish carefully prepared and sooo tasty. Best coffee too. Great atmosphere, friendly staff. Just loved it.

“Good Food! All day breakfast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Good food, central location. Pricing is pretty decent but there's always a long queue. What to expect from a place with good food right? Highly recommended!
