Nice specialty cafe, you can tell the owner focuses on quality food and service. The bacon was excellent, the whole breakfast was great, great coffee. A hidden gem in Carlton, I’d say I’ll go back.

Great coffee and food, quick service, friendly staff. My personal favourite is the eggs on toast if you're feeling a little less adventurous. If you feel like a little something extra, they have some pretty tasty pastries in the cabinet such as Portuguese tarts, fancy...More

Lygon Street
If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
