Don't let the queue (often out the door at weekends). The queue moves quickly, and the food is really worth it. Have never had a bad experience. Can highly recommend the potato gratin. Friends have also raved about the waffles special and the creamy mushrooms....More

Acme & co coffee is equal to the best in Melbourne. Very fast service, highly professional staff yet friendly. I love it when wait staff remember who ordered what without asking. Eggs used for breakfast are very high quality. Loved it.

Prefab runs hot and cold. I think it's because they can be SO busy. Service is hit or miss and depending on what one order's the food can be the same. One thing definitely is true, when busy -- indoors the noise level is too...More
