A nice place to for breakfast. A good menu, with generous servings. Bacon and eggs are always good, but there are super healthy options available. Decor is warm and inviting. A good place, particularly if you staying at Kiama Shores Motel.

Were heading to Abacus on Chapel when we decided to try Speakeasy. It was so worth it. It was one of best breakfasts to date and that's saying a lot in Melbourne. Between the three of us we each had selected something different, eggs Benny,...More

Some super lovey friendly staff but coffees and brunch were exceptionally average. The coffee was fine but just wasn't at the standard you come to expect in inner city Melbourne. Menu and price weren't really reflective of the meals we received. The pictured meal is...More

Hi John, Thank you for your review! Great to hear you had a good time and enjoyed the food. Appreciate the feedback on the smoking area, we have now restricted smoking to the back laneway outside the restaurant (and away from the courtyard!). Looking forward...More

Chapel Street
Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s
paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and
emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with
specialty stores selling just about everything. The
famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and
vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're
in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the
northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor

There's nothing illegal about Speakeasy Kitchen Bar on Chapel Street in South Yarra, but the cobbled back alley entrance from Commercial Road to the courtyard bar may indicate otherwise. The Chapel Street frontage is a welcoming admission to a light and airy space for eating and drinking the day (and night) away. The sizable terrace out the back reinforces the secretive prohibition era theme and the impressive cocktail accompanies an all-day menu which means you have every reason to stay for the long haul.
