We had a breakfast last Saturday morning. It was a horrible day so less busy than we anticipated at 9am but a 5 min wait in the rain was what we expected. The service was prompt and the food was very tasty, but at those prices you would really hope so! The coffees were very much Melbourne sized and didn’t get a chance for a second. Hence not 5 stars, but it was very enjoyable nonetheless

This place is crawling with foreigners and very little locals which is surprising because the food and coffee is excellent. Loved it. Ambience was very good too. You can tell everyone was having a good time. Will come back again.

Great service, great food, great coffee.

Obviously can get very busy but worth tge wait if you're unlucky enough to get stuck in a queue.

We had the scrambled eggs and baked eggs and would recommend both.

Can see why this place is highly rated! Fantastic experience here. Came of chance had a table for breakfast, was busy but found us one outside. Fast and efficient service, very polite. Good range of veggie dishes and excellent coffee. Good value. In and out in less than 45mins, which is ideal if you're a visitor that needs fuelling for a day sightseeing!
