Foursquare Tips

  • Service is a bit hit and miss and your food is likely to be served with a sour face
  • Great old euro cafe atmosphere, excellent coffee and food, among my favourites for out of office meetings.
  • Awesome risotto here!
  • have the tuna nioise from the supper menu...... it is greatness...! & don't forget to make sure they bring you aioli with bread!
  • Great for brunch, lunch or dinner ...if you like it French, highly recommended
  • The Eggs Benedict is a real winner. Delicious hollandaise - ask for it on the side and they'll give you a whole bowl full.
  • Go the duck or the mushroom risotto!!
  • The zuchini flowers are awesome!
  • great coffee, service, and yumbo scrumbo breakfast
  • Order early... they get busy!
  • The Huevos Madrilenos (baked eggs with tomatoes and sausages) are just awesome!
  • Crazy good coffee and hard to get in.
  • Unbelievable, in an positive manner. Always wanted to try ( curious ) black pudding, not disappointed. Very active place, obviously a lot of repeat visitors. Happy to recommend.
  • Coffee is horrible. European breakfast-bacon is so dry and even the poached eggs are overcooked. Every thing is so dry on my awful. Won't come back
  • Have not eaten here, but great spot for a coffee out on the footpath watching Melbourne go by, whether summer or winter
  • Amazing staff, amazing service, awesome coffee.
  • One of the best restaurants in melbourne
  • Became a bit of a haunt for me during my stay. Great coffee, great food. Not sure what the comments about bad service are all about, as I've had nothing but friendly staff every time.
  • One of Melbourne's older establishments, great atmosphere on a chilly winters day, and quality food to match.
  • Ambience is good however service is hit and miss - may get served with a frown. Beware of 15% surcharge on Sundays, bit sneaky to pass this off to customers. The Heuvos Madrilenos is decent (pic)
