I went here for lunch one time and ordered their napoli penne pasta. It was wonderfully delicious! It came with a side of buttered slice of bread. What a perfect little combo. Their service was quick, and the staff was friendly.

Popped in for brunch I had pancakes with strawberries and icecream. The pancakes 3 were light and fluffy and loaded with generous helping of berries more icecream than I could eat and syrup. Despite being hungry I couldn't manage it all.

Stopped in here for lunch recently after the first place we tried sent us running (horrible smell and loud noise). This cafe was much nicer in terms of quiet atmosphere and a good range of simple but tasty meals. Nestled in between a McDonald's and a Subway it gave the option of something a step up as far as meal... More

Disgusting place, horrible owner, if you want very basic food for an unreasonable price then go here.

The cafe is set up like a 50's diner with some Picasso prints adoring the walls. It's looking a little tired compared to others in the Glenferrie Rd precinct. This cafe is typical of those successful in the 90's. Nothing wrong with that- all the expected menu choices available with great, caring service for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. A... More

We were looking for a late breakfast spot in this area and we found this place. The poached eggs were cooked well, toastie was just a toastie I could've made in the kitchen but it delivered what expected. You order at the front and they bring it out, very casual and simple.

Nothing is too much trouble. We changed the eggS Benedict to egg Benedict, changed the big breakfast options, no problems. Great freshly squeezed orange juice. This is no luxo hipster breakfast place but if you want honest, good tasting, non fatty food at a good price and with good coffee in Hawthorn, this is a recommended choice.

Not many restaurants open for breakfast in Hawthorn except Picasso's Cafe and thank goodness I came upon this gem. Fantastic breakfast, so tasty, great service and value. Great coffee and the best scrambled eggs I've had for a long time.

to stop for a efficient lunch or break during the day: tasty sandwiches and cakes (be aware of the fact that a piece of the offered cakes can be like a full lunch :-) !!!) - the spot does not look too cosy but the staff is friendly ...
