Welcoming, large relatively new neighbourhood cafe. Full on a Tuesday morning with local ladies! Very friendly & efficient staff. Good coffee & juices. Complimentary sparkling water & plenty of it. The menu looks good for brunch & lunch if a little pricey. Will be back to try the food soon. Recommend a visit so you can draw your own conclusions.

Great place to catch up with friends for lunch/ coffee/ cakes. The only place in Martin street with a great garden setting.

Very disappointing. To plagerise a Seinfeld episode: 'you can take the order but you don't know how to fill the order'. Toast and butter, no butter. Bacon and egg roll, no bacon and cold. First two coffees, one was what was ordered, the other wasn't and was taken away. After 30 minutes we reminded them about the missing coffee, and... More

Recently met friends here for lunch. The whole time we were there, everyone in the cafe had to yell to be heard. The noise in there was deafening! For that reason alone, we all decided we would never go there again. The girl serving us could not be faulted. The black bread rolls did not look at all appetising, and... More

I visit this cafe every morning for a coffee before school drop off as I live in the area. They have lactose intolerant milk (Liddells) as well as Soy and Almond. I've never had a bad coffee from here. My favourite breakfast dish is the Martin Street Eggs (breakfast is served all day - good for a lazy Sunday sleep... More

Was pressed for time so ordered the ham sandwich. Was slightly disappointed when it came to the table. Seeing the bread was toasted and it came with a knife and fork. Very difficult to eat, was expecting a sandwich I could eat quickly. Please let customers know your sandwiches are this way when they order so they know what to... More

Are we serious? On Friday too. Whoever in the office thinks that a 30 minute break when doing a full day training is enough must want me to stay skinny and probably didn't know that I've got a Zomato account ;-) Alas, they did not succeed! Whilst walking along Martin St, Gardenvale during our break, we saw this place with... More

Let me start by saying the reception and service was friendly and good as was the food, great baguette and the absolutely excellent coffee. Great background music even if a little to loud. However if you are going to have people sit and look behind your serving area and into your kitchen you have to make sure the view is... More

This place is an absolute gem in Martin Street near the station. Great coffee and food and not to overshadow these but, the staff and service are first class!
