Excellent place for lunch in Fitzroy - a longtime favourite (for coffee and food) of those working in the local area. Huevos pericos (with arepa) a delicious way to start the day. Hot chocolate, brownies and Portuguese egg tarts also highly recommended.

Arepas are not home made, no great variety of fillings for a place that meant to be South American😕 and coffe was very weak. Lady serving us not ver friendly. Paid wait to much for breakfast for quality we got. Definitely not coming back

We really enjoyed our Sunday lunch here. The South American food is very different but delicious. The fresh squeezed fruit juice is probably the best I have ever had.

I come here after my exams. The pollo arepa is delicious. The chicken is succulent and well flavored. Plus their breakfast smoothie is a filling meal itself.

This is a quirky small cafe which fits in well on Gertrude Street Fitzroy. It had clearly strong South American influence and had some atmosphere.Well worth a visit for something a little different.

Nice place for breakfast. Good coffee and a good variety of South American food on offer. Servings are not large bit tasty. Service was OK but not much more. Staff seemed to get a bit overwhelmed with too many customers. Would be a problem if...More

Ok for a nice quick coffee and a potugese tart! Seemed a popular place.Staff not overly friendly. Maybe we got them on a bad day.

Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots,
hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic.
Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll
find little independent shops where local clothes and
furniture designers display their wares. There are
specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality
vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best
thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its
