Visited today for brunch with my daughter visiting from London. Ten minute wait for a table but definitely worth it. Interesting menu and hard to decide on a choice. Opted for the heirloom tomatoes dish to start and it was incredible. We added a poached egg and avocado. Fabulous !
Followed it with the ricotta hot cakes. Enjoyed it a lot but quite sweet after the tomatoes.

The café is located just minutes away from Southern Cross stations, 5-10 minute walk. However, the sign is pretty small. Visited on a Sunday noon and we waited approximately 40 minutes to be seated, the place seemed to be extremely busy and crowded. We were seated near the corner, right by the wall, table for 2 and orders were taken right away. Food arrived between 15-20 minutes later and the presentation just blew us away. My friend ordered a fish dish and I, the brunch pancake with edible flowers and blueberries topped with ice cream. They were delicious and the portion is quite huge. The waiter was very attentive, and asked if food is okay and if we need anything else. Great experience, tho the waiting list could be a turn-off. The café is beautiful, too! Very 'istagrammable'!

Staff were just brilliant, coffee and tea excellent - granola “the best I have had” says the wife! Benedict was delicious with the smoked ham fantastic! Simply a top shelf breakfast, thank you.

We were visiting from Scotland and discovered this place just round from out apartment in docklands. We went back again the next day and have now made a dinner booking. The menu is interesting and some of the food combinations are creative, quality of the food is excellent and we haven’t found anything that we haven’t loved. Great atmosphere and coffee too!

Interesting menu, coffee excellent. Loved the modern deco, gives a nice fresh surrounding to the cafe. Service outstanding, the waitress actually came back to confirm our 2nd coffee order as we had different coffee before hand.
Definitely will visit again next time I’m in Melbourne
