Luckily we had booked a table for breakfast on Saturday. It was very busy. They have a nice breakfast menu with a good variety of dishes for everyone. They do provide high chairs. But there is no room for pramznpq

Amazing food served quickly in this busy restaurant. Friendly staff made excellent recommendations. My mushrooms were just awesome. One of the very best breakfasts I have ever had. No wonder this place was packed.

The best mushrooms I’ve ever had. Seriously. And the rest of the meal was almost as good, as were the dishes enjoyed by all our party. Good coffee, busy but the service was friendly and efficient, varied menu. Highly recommend

We arrived just before noon and weren't able to order breakfast anymore (breakfast until 12). Lunch is around $30, way more expensive then brunch. They didn't even try to be nice and excusing themselves. Service wasn't welcoming.

One of my favourite places for breakfast when in Melbourne. Excellent coffee and innovative menu. Scrambled eggs on sour dough and omelettes are sensational. Attentive and friendly service. Very well managed establishment and always a pleasure to visit. Thank you.

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
