Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

In what seems to have been some type of warehouse, this coffee shop/cafe boasts an impressive coffee menu, including some options you are not likely to find elsewhere in Melbourne. The food menu offers just as many choices, and the staff is efficient working in...a popular, busy location. We enjoyed our food and drinks, this also was perhaps our most expensive breakfast in the city.More

Visited several times for breakfast or brunch while visiting family. Great quality and friendly service every time. Breakfast are like twists on the classics, very good and my first Melbourne Magic here… but not my last.

Food was artistically presented and rich in flavor; service crews are attending and promptly address our need; priced in the right range for such a popular cafe; and the coffee was special and great!

We love love love the ambience, the coffee, the food here. Everything is simply amazing. We had Wasabi avocado and the eggs and iced caramel macchiato to wash everything down. Happy tummy. Happy us.

Visited Seven Seeds years ago when it was new, now living in Melbourne thought we might chance it again. Good coffee, prefer it hot though. The interior still looks good, the dead plants out the front, please remove them, they look sad. Food was well...done, it's a good breakfast place.More

Cool cafe with industrial design. Lots of seats. Great coffee. Avo & asparagus toast was tasty. Partners pancakes were good but one of the pancakes was still a bit raw in the middle.

7 Seeds is close to the hospitals, unis and student accommodation, not far from the markets and the tram stop. It’s located in a big barn of a place, so tables are very well spaced, and there‘s some limited outdoor seating in a relatively quiet...street. Coffee is good, and amongst the café staples, there’s a good range of cakes and salads.More

We spent the week in Carlton and tried a number of different venues for breakfast and dinner to cover a range of experiences and cuisines and visited Seven Seeds based on the reviews we had read. A clever and creative design and ambience. Service was...good and the staff we spoke with friendly, although not overly busy first thing in the morning when we were there. The coffee was very good. The all day menu is quite tight and unique which some may find restrictive. I was disappointed with the scrambled eggs and bacon as a side, which did not state it was pork belly and cooked crispy (I felt burnt). two thick pieces of white sour dough was one too many. My wife provided feedback and experienced some defensiveness but obligingly provided no charge for the bacon. Ok for something hip but our experience at Vertue Coffee Roasters superior.More

We went to this place to have brunch with our friends. We all ordered different plates but I will focus more on my order which was Avo something goodness or Godness... And God knows it was delicious 🙌 what made it so special besides the...stunning presentation was macadamia nuts and sour cream. You just can't go wrong with those two. Coffee was great as well. I drink almond flat white and I am quite picky when it comes to this combo ;) Highly recommend😉More

We visited Seven Seeds following a recommendation from an Uber driver. Although it was busy we were seated within a couple of mins. Both the food and coffee are worth a visit.

My husband and I had a delightful experience at Seven Seeds inside the Williamsburg Hotel for Sunday brunch. When we walked in, such a pleasant hostess named Jessica greeted us. Jessica was very accommodating and made sure we had the best seats in the house...in honor of my husband‘s birthday. The food was delicious and the service was phenomenal. The live band was the cherry on top! We made reservations to return next week again! Thank you for a lovely experience!More

Young Merlot took Vin and Mrs. Merlot for an early Sunday morning breakfast after we collected him from airport. Interesting larger space with effectively 2 “rooms”. As it was early no problems in getting a good table. Definite hipster vibe happening. But as is commonly...now the case the music too loud for bare concrete floors in open space! Breakfast very good all round with a few interesting twists. Coffee very good as well. Recommended and a definite return.More

If you want real parmesan, cut from the block, grated
over your pasta with a twist of style, this is the
place. Until recently, this neighbourhood was home to
the notorious ‘Carlton Crew,’ a pseudo mafia who
started their day with a local espresso. They are
gone, but the espresso still runs strong in this
Little Italy which has something for everyone.
Starched white tablecloths, candles, pizza the way
