“Yeah we are pretty full.”- that should never be the only response to anyone coming in for a table, especially on a rainy day. No explanation, no apology, no invitation to come back another time. Tables were also available when we walked in, so I...More

Service was lukewarm and borderline rude. Did not tip. Had a booking, couple in front didn’t seem to. They were seated in a nice comfy corner table. The table and chair we were sat at were so uncomfortable we had to leave after entree. Stop...More

Great fusion sharing plates, great flavours and interesting combinations; the vegetarian options were excellent, and that's coming from a non-vegetarian. A definite buzz even mid-week, so I suspect bookings would be needed. We were very lucky to walk in and get a couple of places...More

Superb coffee followed by a great breakfast. The shakshouka was delicious with a good flavour of cumin and brilliant Persian fetta. The asparagus with eggs and prosciutto well cooked and presented. Service was also impeccable.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
