Cafes at Federation Square- any suggestions?

I will be taking a friend to light lunch at Federation Square National Gallery. Has anyone had experiences of cafes there? I see there is the Crossbar Cafe in the National Gallery, also a Brunettis. Some comments would be helpful, thanks very much.

Fedish is nice be ause you can sit out on the balcony overlooking the river - weather permitting, of course.

I always have a good meal at Bokchoy Tang.

Chocolate Buddah is quite popular but I find it overpriced.

The pub - The T - does quite good food and, again, you can sit outside with a river view.

Thanks for your help. Have you tried the cafe in the Gallery itself, by any chance?

I often eat at Time Out and can recommend it. Not cheap and not expensive, the food is very good. You can dine inside or out.

By the way, Brunettis is not at Federation Square but on the corner of Swanston and Flinders Lane in the City Square. Which is a small block away.
