Restaurant details
Reviewed April 4, 2018 via mobile

Wished I would live across the street from this beautiful Melbourne Cafe, it ticks all the boxes, affordable, great fresh food prepared by very talented and passionate Chefs. Who are creative but not over complicate your Meals. Eight hour Lamb was a perfect meal full of flavours. Meals are prepared quickly. Friendly waitstaff, who prepare a great Coffee.
Loved the decor of the place. Great place to meet with friends or just chill and let the city hustle go by.
I’ll be back.

Not much of this cafe screams cool or funky, but the menu is well thought out and the food is better than the usual cafe fare and attempts to be inventive with the regular staples.

There’s plenty of room, but the cafe appears to be very popular, and often you’ll have to line up. The service staff were friendly and attentive.

Great atmosphere we sat outside and mostly had a shaded area, we did need to more the table and chairs a bit. Serving sizes were generous, service was a little slow but they were busy on the Saturday at lunchtime snd we were in no hurry.

Had lunch at this cafe with family and the staff were not very friendly or approachable. The chef and waitress were very unprofessional as they were complaining very loudly about a customer that was sitting outside. We were sitting on a table right near the kitchen where they were talking about this customer and found it very awkward and unprofessional! Knowing that our table would have heard them complaining about the customer made it even worse..
The food was a bit hit and miss too.
