F: Interesting choices in the food menu. I went for the steam egg with scallop which was well made. The sweetness of the scallop was nicely infused with the egg. Macha latte and latte were well crafted.

E: The interior is well decorated. Gave me the impression of a fairytale land.

R: The queue can be quite long. Will revisit if I am back in this area.

Best food I had in Melbourne!!! Very vegetarian friendly + plus amazing coffee. Service was also super fast. Only downside was that we have to share tables - but a nice way to meet people.

The staff were friendly and it was a very pleasant experience. Nice breakfast menu and most of all the food was quality. I ordered the mushroom and poached egg and the taste was wonderful. Would recommend.

A delightful cafe where the service is good, The food was enjoyable and the street atmosphere was fun. We had a pleasant time eating here and would definitely go back. The Lobster on the Black Bun was Yum that was the only way to describe it. There were many other great meals on the Menu and some of the usual favorites in the eggs on toast range. The eggs have rich yellow yolks which look appetizing .

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
