I have been meaning to visit this place for ages and having made the effort I will be back for sure.Today I tried a salad and it was so fresh and enjoyable. I can see this is certainly a bagel heaven save for so next time. Coffee also delicious.

Couple of my friends and I have started a yearly visit to Melbourne for the food and shopping, we visit this place last year and fell in love with the food so decided to come back.. Unfortunately the service we received this year was very poorly and just rude!! From the start it was hard to get someone's attention to... More

I want to give this place 5 stars - this was our second visit on an annual girls trip. We were all decided this was one place we would come back to. Food is delicious and the coffee is good. This time around however we were let down by the service. Two of our party of four ordered a cold... More

This place was amazing. We had a bit of a wait to get a table but it was worth it. The bagels were yummy and the meals were huge

Love this place! Came here after seeing it on Trip Advisor, and the reviews are not wrong! It's down one of the many alleys of Melbourne and not clearly marked which makes it feel like more of a local place. It's quite small but we managed to squeeze in. They only do bagels but they have quite a wide variety.... More

We found this after it was recommended by a friend. It lies in an alleyway and is a very quirky and chilled cafe. I tried the matcha latte for the first time and was quite surprised. The atmosphere was chilled and the jazz music is relaxed. Will definitely return!

Mid week breakfast. Coffee was excellent. Breakfast menu limited - no eggs or bacon (call me old fashioned). A lot of bagel options. I would go back for the coffee.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
