Couldnt fault this brilliant Eltham cafe. Whole new look on how a cafe should be as its in an industrial area. Parking is BAD. But every other part of the experience is great. Room is large and very attractive. Small courtyard dining soace through large windows. Staff friendly and professional. Menu choices are broad and flexible cafe greats. Wine choices plentiful. Quality overall very high.

Enjoyed lunch with my daughter. My choice was avocado with goats' cheese on grain toast. It was absolutely delicious with what seemed like a whole avo lightly mashed with a hint of lemon plus generous dobs of the soft tangy cheese. There was a spinkle of sesame seed douka to finish it off. My daughter enjoyed her toasted flat bread filled with roasted pumpkin and other yummy items. We shared an unusual pistachio and raspberry smack cake with a creamy frosting. The coffee was excellent. The only downside was the noise level but I guess that is to be expected from a full house.

Beautiful, pricey place but food is very disappointed quality. Service is excellent. Not recommend for the gourmet dinner. Although by saying that. If just hangout for drinking. Pretty good for the atmosphere.

Most enjoyable lunch with two friends. Noisy and busy but staff are really helpful, service is very fast and our food and coffee was excellent.

Our group was looking for somewhere new to have a coffee catch up & Second Home was eagerly suggested. The decor is pleasant but with a room full of women talking it was SO difficult to enjoy conversation. The staff were very attentive but I didn't enjoy my pear muffin at all - although fresh, it was very much lacking pear with only a couple of small slivers on the top. Wouldn't choose to go there again.
