We came for Saturday lunch. Found a table outside immediately which was a surprise. Menu a little expensive but then found that there was sushi and a burger joint attached. We had the best burgers for a reasonable price. Kids loved the thick shakes. Husband...More

Haven't been here for quite a long time do thought a revisit was in order. Avocado on toast was ordered straight off the menu. Whilst it was "nice" I wouldn't say it was memorable. Not super tasty but ingredients were fresh. Hubby ordered poached eggs...More

I love the take away section/providore in this place. It is not cheap but it is divine and everything is so tempting and beautifully presented.

This place is always crowded but having eaten lunch here once I really can't see what the appeal is other than being the place to be seen and eat outside eating overpriced food. Lunch menu seems very limited if you just want wraps/sandwiches etc.

I agree with a previous review that they do the best toasted sandwiches in Melbourne - and serve them with a smile - always busy, but it is a great place to sit and watch the world go by.

Love this place. Toasted sandwiches are fantastic. Always busy and bustling and you can see why. Down to earth cafe going a great job. Nice coffee. Highly recommend for families with kids.
