Great little Fitzroy local cafe now under new management so thought we'd try it again. For brekkie we had the smashed avo...generous serve of avo and so tasty. Came back again for lunch as the burgers looked so delish.. I had the pork burger and my vegetarian friend had the vegie burger. The buns were perfect and soft and the... More

Birdman eating has revived itself. Its diverse menu is sure to have something for all taste-buds. Their menu items are executed brilliantly with some breakfast basics as well as a few more adventurous items including their signature dish, the birds nest, which I highly recommend and will be sure to have you diving for your phone to document the amazing...

New owners, new management, new menu. Great food with a pumping new vibe. Fantastic daring chefs bring a innovative spin to Melbournes cafe culture. So much goodness for so little coin. Love it!

Breakfast at this great little café in Gertrude Street was the perfect way to start our sunny Sunday. An interesting and different breakfast menu, included son-in-law eggs, quinoa porridge, baked eggs and a sprinkle of gold dust as well. We couldn't go past the corn and zucchini fritters with smashed avocado, maple glazed bacon and relish. Delicious! The coffee is... More

We had decided to go here on a Monday morning as it was open and had found it listed on concrete playground best brunch spots. We arrived there was only 1 other table and the staff ignored us. They eventually came up and I asked what the baked eggs were as it said see waitstaff.. They didn't know and were... More

Yum creamy hot coffee. Interesting menu. I had toast and jam so can't speak to anything else. Cannot really mess that up.

Breakfast was borderline OK. Not a very good service and a massive wait on coffees just to find out it wasn't very nice. Meals where presented well. And the hot chocolate was very nice. Overall it was overpriced. That's why I give it a 2. That end it was only a average breakfast

On a sunny Saturday morning, snagging one of the bench tables on the pavement was a master stroke. There's a fair amount of variety on the menu here but we took the baked eggs with lamb and potato. It was very tasty with the only downside of the egg being cooked right through - hard to keep it slightly runny... More

Beautiful sunny morning in Melbourne and footpath tables buzzing with trendy coffee drinkers. Upon entering I was ignored by the 3 staff so sat myself at a table. After 5 minutes a glass of water was slopped down in front of me and a menu slapped onto the table by a waiter whilst passing. No words spoken! Another 5 minutes... More
