This is a great bar/cafe to pop into any time of the day. The coffee is great and the cocktails and beer is even better. But the reason I keep coming back is the fish tacos!!!

serving interesting food (such large helpings) by friendly and interested staff I really enjoy my visits here. Scrambled eggs on toasted rye?....delicious. And of course there are many kinds of drinks on offer. All of these can be enjoyed either inside or at street-side tables (preferable in the heat of a Melbourne summer).

Entered the restaurant and we said to the staff member we would wait inside for outside sitting area. The staff member with black hair with the biggest attitude going, moved a couple off their table to join another couple eating. Which to me I felt uncomfortable and had to apologize too the couple for her disgusting customer service. We eat... More

Yellow Bird is a little different to some of the places on Chapel St, but don't let the loud posters and louder music fool you - this place is a must visit while in the area! Always happy with food, with a mix of mexican and standard Melbourne cafe food, there really is a heap to choose from (Good quality... More

Highly recommend the pumpkin beetroot and chicken salad. This is a quirky little place with good service and a nice menu.

Recently took my cousin who was visiting from London here. Great spot to encapsulate the Chapel Street experience. Delicious food and cocktails, friendly efficient staff and great atmosphere. An outdoor table is perfect on a warm night and prime position for 'people watching' along this busy spot. We all enjoyed the food which was promptly served and tasty.

Nice place to have some good food or a delicious cocktail with nice rock music. Their burgers are very good.

This is a really cool venue on Chapel St, evidenced by how busy it can get. Beware the music, it's very loud so don't go here if you are looking for a nice quiet meal! To be honest, I don't really rate the food that highly - I've had the chicken and cheese burrito twice and found it quite bland,... More
