Drink at the bar or at a windowl open to the street. There is a second room which is the dining room and an outside nook. Ptron toilet and rear car park. Fully licenced premises with a fine ambience. Snacks and meals are prepared carefully with a takeaway service. The meals room is clean and quaint. Great wine bar.

I don't like criticizing small businesses but our visit to 9 was terrible. Walked in stood at the counter, got eye contact from staff but nothing more, eventually we decided to seat ourselves. Waited and waited for service but again nothing- went and asked for a menu only to be told they were all being used. Asked for some water... More

The lunch here was ok. There are tables out the front and up the side of the cafe. Drinks order was quick but took a long time to get our food order. When it came it was good.

Unfortunately we must have visited on a very poor day, judging by the other reviews on here. We were hoping for a decent coffee as it was a cool Sunday morning and we were about to leave town. We walked in and there was only really about two other groups inside eating. An elderly lady was waiting to order in... More

Had a delicious chocolate cheese cake and coffees. Waitress was especially nice to us, maybe we reminded her of her grandparents! But I think she is one of those treasures that cafe owners need to know just make their place special. The plus here also is that it is near the Telstra Air telephone so I didn't need to bother...

Quirky place occupying half a store next door — or is it a converted or covered walkway? — with good food and coffee. The eggs in our breakfasts were either organic, or very very fresh, with bright bold yellow yolks. Cooked breakfasts were slightly cheaper than nearby cafes (which still leaves them a bit more expensive than similar places in Melbourne),... More
