Had some eggs Benedict and pancakes with maple syrup. Amazing fluffy pancakes and creamy hollandaise sauce yummm. Everything cooked to perfection. The prices were affordable as well. Nice little cafe.

Wow! Food was awesome and service as well. However, you pay for the location. All in all, worth it for a low breakfast or early lunch, i.e. brunch.

Central Business District
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
