This seemed to be a popular lunchtime spot for office workers. The food was original and it had a good atmosphere. Service was good and the sparkling mineral water complimentary.

loved the poppy seed muffin... moist, with hint of lemon and delicious! Coffee was burnt and pretty average which was disappointing. Staff think they are pretty cool so if you look cool then you will be hovered over ... if not you may have to wait!
Limited menu - not the place if you just want a coffee and sandwich

Recently opened this place seems to have not been discovered by all the lawyers at the nearby courts. That is a good thing as you can get served fast, have a good coffee and a tasty muffin (haven't tried the lunches) and not be packed in. Service is good, friendly and they remember regulars which is always nice to see they care. Will become a regular stop in when I am around Melbourne.

We arrived a little hot and bothered, and were immediately greeted by a young lady who seated us and asked if we would like some water, while presenting us with the menu. No time at all she was back with very welcomed refreshments. We had a lovely bagette which came with a fresh crisp salad. Very enjoyable all round. We even got 20% off as we were staying at the Oaks next door. A pleasant surprise.
