We were in Melbourne for the AO Tennis and have visited the Grain Store with friends a while back. We ended up enjoying three breakfasts here during our stay as the wonderful food, coffee and service
was so great. They also hosted our whole group in their purpose dining area, and everything was handled perfectly.
Do yourself a favour and make sure The Grain Store is on your list for breakfast/brunch. Well done to staff and Melanie, this establishment is exactly how it should be......consistently excellent.

Thank you and see you next time.

The food and the coffee at this place is excellent. Service was also good. Highly recommend the french toast and flat white, flowed by the freshly baked cookies.

We like food and coffee..Good food and good coffee....The grain store was fantastic!
We were staying around the corner and this place was a gem.
Both my partner and I think it is possibly the best breakfast we have had!
I had eggs, crispy haloumi and the bacon.
My partner the pancakes that came out with the condiments on the side almost like a piece of artwork.
It's unusual to get bad coffee in Melb. Lots of places do it really well. This coffee was up there.
This place will be on our return and visit list next time in Melb

Came for a quick meal and stayed for An Experience. The breakfast menu seemed odd to US tastes, unfamiliar combinations of ingredients that had us wondering until the first bite. Terrific! Very clean and bright with attentive staff. The coffee was strong and the juice was fresh, be prepared to pay for it however.

Looking for something 'healthy' to eat, we were torn between here and a Mexican. This place won in virtue of the reviews, and pictures!

Got seated (it was a late lunch) and looked through the menu. The duck jumped out at me and my partner went for the quiche (last slice of the day). We did order two glasses of wine too (more on that later).

The food was delicious, the salad and sides with both the duck and quiche was superb. The duck itself was beautifully cooked and the quiche had chunks of veg, wonderfully cooked.

The only reason I've given this 4 stars is the person who was serving us took our order and forgot to get the wine. It took quite some time before they realised this (the one who served us left!!). Seeing a table without drinks and waiting on food should ring alarm bells.

Everything else was great - would happily come back.
