Don't waste your money at this place. Worst service ever, could not do a drink, this is how we serve drinks in Australia... Sure, have been at much better places in Australia.

Hi Anders, What drink could they not make? I am a little confused by this, perhaps you could elaborate a little. This will then give me the opportunity to perhaps offer some additional training if required. Thanks,

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
