“Don't Believe the Hype”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

I've had brunch here several times and must admit to being a little bemused by the rapturous tone of most of the reviews here. While there is absolutely nothing wrong - the food, coffee and service are all perfectly fine - I just didn't find it in any way exceptional, particularly when compared to other similar places in the area. If anything the menu is more limited and prices a little higher than other places that (in my opinion) are superior.

Is this the best place in the area? Definitely not. Is it worth a visit? Probably yes. Just don't let your expectations be infuenced by the hype.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Best breakfast I've had in a long time. Absolutely perfect. There's heaps of vegetarian options on the menu too which means I'll be back for more for sure :) Great service, friendly staff, amazing vibe off trendy Greville St. Winner joint!

“Awesome food and service”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

We had a birthday celebration at Oscar Cooper last week, as we'd been there before, and it was fabulous. It was a new experience for 2 of our friends and they said it was the best linguini they'd ever tasted. My family and I have been there quite a few times and have always been greeted as friends and have had fabulous food. We don't live near Prahran but when you find a place that serves amazing food, has great service and is reasonably priced you just have to go there ….. highly recommended.

Lovely little spot, great for people watching - watch cars at the junction, very amusing! The staff are super friendly and the food is great, really fresh and tasty. Well worth a visit.
