We visited Affogato for breakfast during a recent visit to Melbourne. The staff are very welcoming, there is a great varied menu with a lot of gluten free options. The gluten free bread was delicious! The coffee was great with different milk options.

Staff were lovely and inviting without being over the top. There were many things to pick from the menu (savoury and pancake menus). The meals were full of flavour and portion sizes were generous.

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

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
