Yes, it was very noisy here with people coming and going, eating and chatting with additional noise from the kitchen, but it was well worth it for a lovely lunch. Only had to wait 2 - 3 minutes for a table, as they were full, and the service was quick. Two of us had the smoked brisket milk bun with kimchi, cucumber and crispy kipfler potato chips on the side ... yum! The other dishes tried were the polenta gnocchi and the rosti, both equally tasty and well-presented. None of these dishes were ordinary, they were all new and excitingly different. Well done Proud Mary, and we didn't even try your coffee, perhaps next time.

Living two hours from the city in Gippsland, it took us three goes before we were able to get a table at Proud Mary's due to the demand (we arrived at 7 in the morning on the 3rd try just to make sure that we got a table!). Great tasty breakfasts with plenty of options and great coffee roasted in house. Will definitely be back if we can get a table!

Worthy of the name, indeed would be proud to bring friends here.
Always great food. Caters well for veggies and vegans. Coffee on the sturdy side. Atmosphere has a good buzz

Winter fare doesn't come any better than the breakfast porridge at Proud Mary. Creamy, unctuous, delicious and topped with pistachios, this is the most wonderful, warming way to start the day. Goldilocks would have polished off all three bowls of this gorgeous offering! The poached eggs chosen by my partner boasted lovely golden yolks and were cooked to perfection. The coffee is soooo good here: rich and bold and sassy. Have to have two. The staff are happy and friendly and its great to sit at a big table and enjoy lots of interesting people all around you. As in all things in life, you get what you pay for; and at Proud Mary you are paying for, and getting, the best.

The least we can say is that proud Mary worths its name ...food is so tasty , coffee is one of the best in Melbourne . Choose the nutty or the fruity flavor or just ask for the winner brand coffee and enjoy it . Freshness is guaranteed even after weeks.
