Frudeli was recommended to me so I popped in for a coffee... absolutely fell in love with their soy latte!

We popped in for hot drinks on a wet morning and received a very warm, smiling welcome. The hot drinks were served promptly and enjoyed. We bought sandwiches to take home for lunch from a wide selection of breads, wraps, fillings & ready-made lunch fare. The only downside is the concrete floor, which makes the cafe noisy.

The service is friendly and coffee adequate but time to serve needs to be much quicker. We were waiting 30 mins and the cafe was mostly empty I enjoyed the poached eggs with smashed avocado

My first breaky arriving in Melbourne yesterday... Mmmmm coffee was so good! I needed it! The owner was lovely and breakfast(ham/cheese croissant and poached eggs on sour dough) was fantastic. Reasonable prices and nice place to relax. Definitely recommend! :)

I meet friends for coffee here every week - the staff are friendly, the coffee always hot and I'm often tempted by the muffins on offer. Sometimes I even take home dinner - lasagne & salad or one of the many things on offer. There's lots of competition in this strip of shops but Frudeli is a great one!!

Thank jillreading08
