Visited Charlie Lovett again today and sat on the verandah overlooking the Yarra River and thoroughly enjoyed the latte & muffin. I really enjoy a muffin and at Charlie Lovett they are made on site and are always fresh and most of all very tasty!...More

Our local breakfast go to at home is a Charlie Lovett, but unfortunately this branch had less options. The food here is fairly standard breakfast fare fancied up with chorizo instead of sausage. Still, the food, coffee and atmosphere are fine.

Lovely food and atmosphere and a feeling of space as you weren't crammed in. The staff were friendly and waiting time was very short even though they were busy.

Located on SouthWharf we had high hopes entering this hipster burger bar. It was busy yes and seemingly understaffed with only 2 young girls trying to host/ waitress and clear tables. Find a place to sit, order at the counter. A long queue waiting to...More
