Coffee is great, service can be haphazard but is always friendly. I wish they had a few little snacky items on the menu, such as some dips that could be shared and picked at while you talk, as it's a great venue to catch up for a coffee at times when you often don't feel like a full meal. Cakes and muffins don't do it for me, and there's nothing small in the savoury offerings. I've had breakfast here a few times and always enjoyed my meal, so Wild Gypsy Rose must have struck them on a bad day. By the same token, as a venue for a large group, it's not the best option on this strip. Head for the back area of the Domain Brasserie (formerly 181) if that's what you're looking for. One word of advice for the owners - kill the kick bar on the big back table - it is impossible to sit comfortably, but this is one of the best positions in the place!

When you make the time to make a reservation, and again to reconfirm with final numbers, the minumim that you expect is that you will all be seated at the one table.
Sorry but MLG finds that its TOO difficult for a table of 10; thus 7 on one table and 3 on another; and given that we'd travelled from WA, SA and rural Vic to meet, this was most disappointing.
Juice orders forgotten, breakfast delivered 30+ mins after ordering, and having to ask for water bottles to be refreshed,....
Food was variable; friuit salad from the 60s, beans quiet good, avacado good and benedict so-so.
Coffee was fine, toilets - supress your need to go!!!!
MLG may be fine for brekkie for 2, but if its more than that, or if you want a "special" breakfast (ie; more than you can make at hone) this is not the place to go
