Having seen the reviews we decided to go for a Sunday breakky here. Once our drink orders were taken it took a long time (25+ minutes) to get our food orders taken - we called out to one staff member who said someone else would be over to take our order, but ended up asking her again 10 minutes later...

Was perfect for a lazy Saturday brunch after Shul with the family. Food came out all at the same time. They didn't rush us and they provided marvelous service.

We don't live in the area but were in our way to an appointment and searched for Pour over coffee in Prahran and came across Hobba. Located on Malvern Rd near the corner of Williams Rd, it looks like it may have been an old garage in years gone by. An industrial ceiling look, friendly vibe and off street parking... More

It might be Hobba is Overwhelmingly the Best Brunch Around. Mind Blowing!! I really don't want to gush, in case it makes it hard to get a seat in future. It is the best brunch I have ever had. At 52 and well travelled, that is one hell of a claim for me. Had never heard of Hobba before my... More

Wow! Went with friends who go regularly as they live in nearby Albert Park..wasn't keen on going there as I thought parking would be an issue but it was actually really good for parking. Ordered a coffee and I'm so fussy that I rarely enjoy a coffee outside my own home..well it was excellent! Great flavour, very impressed..probably best coffee... More

We've eaten brunch here a couple of times and it's never disappointed. The menu is interesting and always very tasty. The staff are helpful and efficient. Set in an old warehouse, it's a large and unusual venue, that is well decorated. It's always very popular, but the staff will find you a table.

This rustic warehouse is an exciting place to be for brunch. Can be busy so booking is recommended. If you like hot coffee please ask for extra and you will get it. The food selections are amazing
