Located in the beautiful lane, right in the heart of Melbourne. If you're wondering where to eat your breakfast, you should definitely consider this place. The service was quite good, the cafe wasn't very busy in the morning (although we were there before 10am). The...More

It's a great little place. The people were sweet and and breakfast was delicious. The menu is diverse which is nice. It's very small but so are all the restaurants in the area.

What a great location! Had a delicious smoked salmon pizza. It was super. We also had the calamari entree. It was super to! We thought the atmosphere was lively a little noisy at times but not unsociable.Staff good.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,

never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
