Nice place to have some good food or a delicious cocktail with nice rock music. Their burgers are very good.

This is a really cool venue on Chapel St, evidenced by how busy it can get. Beware the music, it's very loud so don't go here if you are looking for a nice quiet meal! To be honest, I don't really rate the food that highly - I've had the chicken and cheese burrito twice and found it quite bland,... More

I've been here a few times for brunch/lunch. I didn't expect greatness, I don't know why. But the meals were surprisingly good, and the servings are so big that you really could get away with sharing one between two very comfortably (unless you're big eaters, then maybe two meals to three of you!)

We came here just for drinks on a Saturday night. The place was busy and very loud. Decor was very interesting, quirky but kinda cool.

So glad we came across this place, perfect for all day breakfast. Awesome atmosphere when you're sitting in. I was so surprised by how quick our meals came out and I was impressed by how many mushrooms were added to my dish, usually places are pretty stingy with ingredients. So yum!

One of mine and my partners favourite place for breakfast. If you like your music loud this is the place for you and try the green eggs and ham.

The place is a colorful premise, full of details, in a very bohemian suburb. Makes you happy just to be there! About food; prices are good in relation to the amount and taste - I tried the Mushroom Burger and was really good! Tasty and with a very generous portion of chips and salad. I will come back!

We always come here for breakfast (which they serve all day) every time we stay in Melbourne It's a funky place with a great atmosphere and nothing beats a Death Benedict with a Bloody Mary when you are hung over and need to warm up We had lunch here for the first time and it was just as delish. 3...

This is the only place I go when in Windsor. Has all hallmarks of old school genuine Fitzroy scene. No toffees here just real people, with real cool coffee and food. Owner Matt has put his trademark throughout the joint, laid back and easy going. A must visit if your in this part of town!

Thank Ed C
