The ambience of this quaint tea room is so inviting and you are not disappointed with the quality and presentation of your meal or cake. the staff are friendly and it is a lovely experience. the fact that you often have to line up to get in is testament to this unique restaurant.

I looked and the window and drooled. The cake look amazing. It took me a while to pick a cake which was $10 was yummy. There are long queues to go in but I took my cake away so I did not have to queue.

A lunch time stroll through the Block Arcade brought us to this interesting "cosy" Tea Room - it was the display of cakes and pastries in the window that caught our attention. There was a queue so we thought it was a good sign. We joined the line and after about 25 minutes were shown to our table. The waitress was delightful and "walked us through the menu". The food was wonderful in taste and presentation. We didn't order dessert but we'll definitely go back for that next trip.

We had seen the cakes in the window and thought we had to give this place a try as they looked amazing. We waited about 15 minutes to be seated which wasn't a problem and were seated by the hostess who was very friendly. Our waitress showed no interest in providing good customer service and was rude. The latte was delicious but unfortunately the food wasn't up to scratch, the cake was dry and had hardly any flavour, the mouse was very nice. Wouldn't bother returning

Went there for a few times and there's always a long queue out there. Decided to try our luck again around Sunday evening and we managed to get a table real quick. I wouldn't say they make the best cake and coffee in Melbourne but they are close to there! Waitress was friendly and even offered us water when requested. Definitely a must try when you go to Melbourne.
