Hipster heaven, overpriced undigestible food. Coffee is ok. Salads are woeful. Close to Smith st in an area that is booming. I suppose the yuppy set does not rate quality against price.

This place is a hidden gem. Tucked away in an old warehouse conversion this place packs some punch. The staff were friendly. The place had a great vibe and was a little quirky. The food was delicious and the coffee was great.

I had to have the zucchini fritters after reading the reviews and was not disappointed. The coffee was spot on. This is a fantastic find and a great warehouse space which wasn't overly noisy. The fire topped off a great breakfast.

This is definitely one of the best brunch place in Melbourne. The corn and zucchini fritter is a must try here. Coffee is also great but I didn't try it this time. It is expensive but so is the other brunch places in Melbourne. Staff...More
