I came here three times last week. The coffee was good as was the food. However, the friendly staff were ordinary in their service. Chatting to each other, I had to work hard to get their attention. Once I got them over to my table,...More

This is STILL my favourite breakfast place! Consistently good! Great expresso! Never disappointed with service, quantity, quality and presentation! Seated inside or out the staff are constantly attentive! Love the food! And the christmas goodies and confectionery on the side were a bonus!

This cafe has great character, the coffee and chai tea are excellent. The food is great too - nice place to have brunch, especially sitting out on the street enjoying the vibrant activity of Sth Melbourmne's most beautiful street.

Great coffee, great food, great service, great decor and lots of papers! Love the little coffee store on the left side in front of the roastery area - I always like mooching around in here for a new gadget or gizmo.

South Melbourne hosts the city’s oldest continuous
market, founded in 1867. Rows of neatly arranged
fruit, vegetables and flowers splash yellows, greens
and reds along the entire perimeter, where the whole
neighbourhood gathers for Saturday feasts. Inside the
hall, shoppers hover over the mouth-watering displays
of delicatessens and specialty food shops. Further in,
a bazaar full of giftware, clothing, and kitchen
