We live in the city of glen eira and as such would rate this a local number one..

Greeted at the front with a smile and then directed to sit on the appropriate table..

There are family tables, tables for couples or groups.. The place is furnished well and place neat and tidy..

The staff are friendly and hospitable..

Food quality is excellent and as such priced appropriately.. I'd highly recommend the juices and the great breakfasts..

There are tables outside and on a nice day; the doors are opened and fresh air surrounds the place..

If you are a local, visitor or just want to try something new; don't miss Mr Brightside...

Happy trails.. :)

Had a long overdue catch up for lunch with a girl friend. We both enjoyed the Tuna sashimi with smoked tuna cucumber rolls, yogurt & anchovy tempura. The smoked tuna rolls were so delicious I could have inhaled a dozen of them. My only complaint, couldn't taste the anchovy. Coffees were good as was the service. Probably better on a warm day as due to the weather having the doors closed makes it very noisy.

Mister Brightside makes THE best salads ever, consistently. George and Tait (and now Dave) take good care of everyone. I regularly bring groups of clients and each time the services is brilliant and the food outstanding. My clients are impressed and we can be in and out in an hour. Love it!

Conveniently located across from the park, this café-restaurant caters to a daytime clientele stretching from an early (actually it's an all-day menu) rendezvous with breakfast, though the mid-morning coffee, to those who thrive on those long, lazy lunches.

Mister Brightside certainly is a beacon of culinary hope for those in the surrounding suburbs, and its popularity continues to grow every month since opening in November last year.

Owners George & Tait have struck the perfect note with the Caulfield & surrounding community in providing a fantastic menu comprising staple favourites and a specials board that's sure to tempt, and complimented with an excellent beverage selection including baristas Ari & Adrienne consistently crafting smoothest coffee I've had the pleasure to consume.

Staff are polite, attentive, efficient and make the dining experience for each customer a real pleasure, even though front of house is often extremely busy.

Although having moved from the locality several months ago, I regularly find myself drawn back to Mister Brightside on the slightest of provocation.
