This is not located in your typical locale. The building appears to be a former rail station and is right on the 96 route in Melbourne. Don't blink, you might just miss it. The address is misleading, but his place is definitely worth the effort.

The coffee was great and hot! The service, friendly without overly so. The food is the star! We enjoyed corn fritters with bacon (as only the aussies can do it) topped with a chutney that nicely completmented the slight curry flavoring and a dollop of creme freshe, an orgasmic salavation!

My partner tried the large stack of hotcakes with marscapone and fruit compote. Sooooo good.

It is good we live so far away, this place would be a problem for my waistline!!!

Go.....try anything....well worth the trip to find this gem.

Best brunch I've ever had. The poached eggs with salmon is simply stunning. The staffs are also interesting people. Sadly I don't think I'll have a chance to come back since I've left melbourne for good.

One of the best brunch spot i preferred over many I've visited. Price as with all brunch place is on the high side for eggs and bread. I like the flavour combination here better. Hate the queue on weekends though.

Should try, especially if you are visiting Melbourne. Get the #2 and if you like Salmon that's a great serve.

Love the bircher muesli it's divine. Food is clean and well plated and portioned and priced. Coffee is good. New owner so change of floor staff. Need to be on their toes a little more. Orders didn't come out at same time and they doubled up. Owner a bit over zealous but friendly. Hopefully they maintain the reputation and customer base. Recommend travelling out of local area for his delicious food and comfy surroundings

This place is right in front of the tram stop.

So from the city take the tram 96 towards St. Kildare Road and get of at stop 120 Canterbury road or u will see the stop that has a cafe called MART 130. If I'm
Not mistaken the stop name is Middle Park.

If you go during weekday there is less people and it's not busy and you can choose where you would like to sit.

Average person would spend 22$ including a drink. The drinks sizes come
In small and medium and same goes to the price. A price of an small iced chocolate would be 3.50$ and it is small in size :) very cute. Water is served on the table already.

The deco and atmosphere is relaxing a nd suits the whole calm unique cafe deco.

You can choose to sit indoor or outdoor.

If u can't eat things like bacon u can always opt to change it with something else like salmon or avocado.

The food presentation is good. Order te corn fritters!!! :) and the French toast was well presented. ( look at picture)

It's also a good place to bring tourist that want to have a feel what the Melbourne cafe is like :)

Make sure u tick this off ur list when you are in Melbourne!
