“Fantastic breakfast at Babble Bar & Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

The cafe was heaving with people for Sunday brunch but we were quickly accommodated by super friendly staff. Ordered a smoothie, organic crumpets and quince porridge and were pleasantly surprised by how fresh, tasty and homely the flavours were. Watching what others had ordered: the pancakes looked brilliant (strawberries and ricotta piled high) and the hot breakfasts of scrambled eggs and sides looked big, fresh and super tasty. Wanted to order everything on the menu. I absolutely loved this place and will be back.

“Outstanding Breakfast!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

European, Modern Australian call it what you like the breakfast here is excellent and so is the Coffee, I found the staff a little tooooo laid back for my liking but otherwise really chill and lovely. Excellent also in winter when they have the open fireplace...

“Good food, lovely environment...... and very friendly staff.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Going by some of the other tripadvisor users reviews, we decided to visit this place for breakfast. We got here by tram and stopped at the Prahran Market stop. The place is on a side street in front of the market.

The guy in charge was at the door ready to open it for us as we had a pushchair. Straight away he gave us a table, with a higher chair for my little boy, and asked if our boy was allowed a babychino. This had marshmallows in the shape of a smiley face (we were not charged for it)! The place was full. Loved the atmosphere with the burning wood fire.

The coffee used is very good. My wife had the Eggs Royale, and I had the pancakes with egg, bacon and syrup...... they were both very good. We finally closed with a homemade dark chocolate and peanut muffin....... very tasty with neither of the flavours overpowering each other. Apart from our food, we had 4 coffees and a toast / butter for my son..... this came to around $54.

The place was constantly filling up, with a good turn over of customers.

We really enjoyed it and would definitely be back in the future. Would like to try some of their other food: sandwiches looked good!!

“Was OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2013

Stumbled in here one Sunday morning, place was really busy but managed to get a table. Menu was OK but things we wanted were not available, also waited such a long time for food to arrive and the noise inside was extreme....must be getting old!!! The food we ended up choosing was good + good coffee.

“Great Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

Babble is a great cafe in busy Prahran. Easy to get a park nearby (pay), and excellent food and coffee. The sandwiches are huge, but priced well. Staff are very attentive and all seem happy to be there. A good lunch choice in busy Prahran.
