When we turned up it was very busy but we were attended to promptly and given a table after a few minutes. There is a great selection of food on offer, our gnocchi and avo/salmon/egg on toast were delicious. Coffee also very good. We would definitely go back!

SOJOs is my absolute favourite cafe in Melbourne. It is a cafe full of care, love and style. Entering SOJOs feels like entering someone's welcoming living room. The cafe is full of gorgeous art and treasures, fresh flowers and divine soap and hand cream. Stuart runs SOJOs with such amazing care. The staff are always friendly and seem to enjoy... More

Best brunch we have had for a while. We arrived on a Sunday at 10.30am. There was no table but they organised for us to sit in lounges and served us coffee - it only took 10mins for a table. The food was excellent - I had mashed peas with poached eggs and a mimosa ( 2 parts prosecco 1... More

Visited this place today and we were lucky to get a seat in this busy and obviously popular trendy establishment. Lots of personality and attentive service Simply lovely eats to make any breakfast and light brunch a delight. I had the chorizo and eggs with olives on toast which was a wonderful combination

Regular go to spot, I have never been disappointed. Service is always good with friendly smiling staff. Menu has an excellent verity and reasonable price. Café has a great vibe with a collection of interesting art works. This place is one not to miss, just make sure you are here early if you want to miss the queue.

Breakfast is yummy! Interior very cool. If you like strong coffee don't order a latte - they make it pretty weak here get a piccolo.

Visited with my family for a birthday brunch. Visited on a Sunday which was VERY busy but squeezed into a shared table. Menu choice was excellent and the food was great. Service was OK given business of restaurant. Would definitely recommend if you're willing to take a punt on queues over the weekend.

Went for breakfast and whilst the food and coffee are very good, the service by the female wait staff was nothing short of appalling. We were ignored from arrival only to be greeted by the barista (super friendly). Eventually shown to a table. Then we waited and waited and waited for a person to take our order. She was so... More

Lovely new menu, but went collectively for the BLAT, steak sandwich and poached eggs. Our group liked the food very much. Fresh, prompt and not overpriced in comparison to some local spots
