So the menu is strange but totally delicious! If you want a tasty substantial breakfast that’s quirky with great coffee go here. The pulled pork kimchee Edda benedict was divine! If I was a local I’d be back every week

Taste like latte but it’s more bitter👍 The salmon taste good and the bread is better It’s a good restaurant and worth to go there one more time. Recommend to other friends who travel in Melbourne.

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
