I've heard so much about this place and was impressed from the reviews but unfortunately, i wasn't impressed with the service. We arrived at noon and was happy to wait 20 min for table as the food looked great! We waited 45 min, for a member of staff to realise, that we still had not revived our eggs on toast.... More

We attended a wedding function here. The food was very healthy and consisted of plates of meat, vegetables, salads and even saganaki. The restaurant had a good selection of alcoholic drinks and was very well equipped for the wedding we attended.

A super venue, spacious & not noisy. Good menu & shop for the wicked chocolate made here. The special 85% coffee is wonderful to experience as is the regular cappuccino.

I think this place is a bit underrated. Not much review (even TripAdvisor didn't have any picture yet when I wrote this :D). I understand that Melbourne have lots of options for those who love hot chocolate to warm up cold day, start from Chokolait Hub, Koko Black, Theobroma Chocolate, San Churro and many more. But this small cafe has... More

The cafe is also a chocolate factory, so you can guess that their specialty is making hot chocolates. They use a variety of chocolate types, including chilli hot chocolate and a range of single-origin varieties. My favourite is the Ebene 82% dark chocolate. They also do innovative breakfasts, like truffled eggs with diced potato cooked in jars. Their food is... More

If you are looking for a great cafe, that's not your average - this is for you! One of the best breakfast's I've had - and not just your average eggs and bacon. Not to mention the home make chocolate you can buy - yum yum! Well worth the trip!
