I just returned from a trip to Melbourne. The apartment I rented was close to Lemon Middle & Orange so I checked it out. I liked it so much I ate there again the next day. It's located in a warehouse district in Collingwood and not really near a lot of other businesses so you may think you're in the... More

Wow, this place used to be so good, now it's the complete opposite. Obviously this place has had a change in ownership and it's not good at all. The prices are way too high. The plastic flowers on the tables set the tone, I'm kicking myself we didn't leave there and then. The food was pretty much inedible. Such a... More

We had visited prior to new owners and had noticed the not so good reviews but returned anyway. The menu was small but had all day breakfast, lunch items and specials. Two of us had the Cajun chicken sandwich and our coeliac friend had a risotto Prima Vera. All was lovely, cooked beautifully and served by a very friendly and... More

Because my daughter and son in law had a car service in the Porsche garage we went here to have breakfast. We had a simple meal, Zuchini Sweet Potato and Eggs Anyway. The quality of the food and drinks was nice and I paid 90 dollar for 4 !

We had been fans of LMO since it opened. Every time we visited Melbourne it was the first place we would go for breakfast. As we strolled down for Sunday brunch we at first thought the cafe might be closed as it was so quiet. Usually from 50 meters away you can hear the hustle and bustle of this once... More

Visiting from NZ and recommended to try this cafe as we were staying nearby. Located in an industrial area, but we were were impressed by the fit out when we arrived. The cafe was very quiet but appeared to have quite a few staff. We just wanted a light breakfast and coffee so chose eggs on toast with a side... More

Had an early breakfast at this cafe. Beautiful modern decor and the staff lovely. The restaurant had only a few people and yet the breakie took a while. After the wait - a very mediocre breakie was served... for AU$20 - i've had better looking and tasting breakfast around the area. Enjoyed my cold drip though.

We were staying near by and in distress because i coudln't find any cafe's open, till i saw this nearby on google maps. The google maps reviews were mixed and it had that Melbourne hipster vibe to it, which could mean long queues for average food but as it turned out, there was plenty of seating and the food was...

Found this near our apartment and we're delighted. Relaxed vibe and great coffee and superb brunch options. I had the cured salmon with fennel and latkes. Couldn't fault it.

I'm so glad I took my friends advice and had brunch here last week! The decor is fresh and clean. ( its not hipster ) There was a mixed crowd of business people, lazy brunching folks and families. I ordered the deliciousness that was the Corned Beef...with the bagel..with the potato..with the egg..with the mustard..I can taste it now..:) This... More
