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.

The New York bagel was amazing. It had a lot of flavor and filled me up. The coffee was okay, but not hot enough for me. The roast was nice though. I would definitely come back for more.

I have only eaten here once, so my experience with them is limited. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. We ordered 2 pizzas. The Margherita pizza had no basil or mozzarella chese on it. When the waiter asked how I liked the food, I...told him this was unusual. A Margherita pizza without basil or mozzarella is just a cheese pizza. He seemed unaware of what a margherita pizza is.The crust was bready and overall both pizzas were bland. Not bad, just bland. I would be willing to try a different dish there, as the staff and atmosphere were pleasant, but I would not order the pizza.More

The best service. We turned up late as the kitchen was closing but they took us in with a smile. Great food and service.

Extremely rude and arrogant staff. Very slow service and average food. We waited over 40 minutes just for 2 meals. They made us wait 15 minutes before taking our order. I have worked in hospitality and I have never heard of not taking an order...during service. It makes no sense. The waiter had a massive attitude towards us for no reason. They weren't that busy either with only 75% seats filled.More

I had to ask three times to get my coffee. Despite ordering it as soon as I sat down, it arrived 5 minutes after I finished my breakfast. There was no apology, no attempt to hurry up the second or third ask, and I still...got charged the whole amount (plus the 15% on a Sunday). I had the Farmers Eggs. It was reasonably tasty, but very small for $26 - definitely not worth it.More

Coffee was good so too was the Eggs Benedict with pulled pork and Chorizo omelette. Atmosphere is great and the staff is very friendly and helpful. A true gem of Melbourne.

We always come here at least once when in Melbourne. As always it impressed. This time the highlights on the menu were the quarter greens. Just an outstanding combination and by adding a poached egg it gives it a bit more substance. The porridge was...also a good find this time. Great combination of flavours and light. Coffee superb as usual.More

It took about an hour to be served a cold mush of egg, pulled pork, no crackling as advertised. Juices like pineapple are from the can. Give the whole street a miss. It’s for tourists!
