9 colleagues visited for brunch. Despite making a booking we were seated at 3 tables, which was strange due to the fact that there was a large unoccupied table. We moved to the large table. After waiting 40 minutes, we had to ask for the waiter to take our orders, which he reluctantly did. The noise from trams, transports and... More

I've been here a couple of time. The service is generally slow. There is a waitress or two who are great with customers and rush about whilst some of the people behind the counter look like there is no sense of urgency- prioritising entering info into the computer or sorting out an ubereat order rather than take out food that...

My husband and I saw some good reviews so decided to try. Seriously disappointed. Cured salmon smelled and tasted very fishy and unfresh. Smashed avocado has no seasoning at all. Not even tiny bit of lemon zest that was mentioned on the menu. Sourdough were cold, not toasted, not buttered. The breakfast is so flavor-less that I could barely finish... More

Good coffee, good meals. I had something with mushrooms, (can't rem the name) which was great. Service was wonderful and it's easy to get a table most days no matter what time.

They did mention that they were quite understaffed that day, so perhaps this had an influence on the overall quality of the experience. I mean, it definitely affected the wait time, and that I have not factored into my rating. But I have to reflect the significant fall in quality in the food and coffee on this occasion. Ordered the... More

I have been to Le Flaneur on 10+ occasions, and never a disappointing moment. The extensive menu is most impressive for brunch. The coffee is, and a very big call for a Melbournite, the best I have had in Melbourne. I recently returned from a trip to Paris, and on my way back from the airport stopped in for a... More

I dropped in here with 2 colleagues recently and we had a an unexpectedly great time. The food was fabulous, but what made it was the 3 staff that were on that afternoon - the young waitress didn't right a thing down and yet our order arrived perfectly. The attention and service was superb, the 2 guys making the coffee... More

Menu had a number of very interesting items, that will keep us coming back to try new dishes. Service was impeccable, prices were reasonable. The coffee, tea & macaroons were a highlight!

Had a spare Saturday lunch and decided to try out Le Flaneur with me boys. One had the hash brown, the other the chicken and me the lamb. Menu changes weekly which should keep the choices fresh and interesting. Everyone agreed the food taste and presentation was top grade. Service messed up the order for iced chocolate, but we can...
