Certainly worth seeking out this little restaurant, and waiting for a table. One of the best breakfasts I have had, ever! The combinations of ingredients are unusual, resulting in a mouth-watering, delicious dish. I would have tried more dishes, but alas, I didn't have enough...More

The coffee was wonderful and served at perfect temperature. We ate early but book if you can as the cafe fills up quickly from 8am. Accommodates all - healthy filling breakfasts to rich high calorie treats. Service spot on 😄

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
