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.

Pretty happy with the vegetarian bowl for breakfast and the batch brew was well done. Would rate this a very high 3 out of 5. Eggs Benedict portion was reasonably generous.

Awesome coffee and food of generous portion. The portion served is good for brunch. Cafe is quiet - great for morning peace or working. Service staff are friendly and we had a short conversation. Worth the visit!

Hidden down a lane way is this gem. Great coffee and superb menu. A little on the expensive side but well worth it. Cafe provides great service and funky atmosphere. The locals know all about it and the tourists stumble over it. Highly recommend it...for a great way to start the day. Specialist in bagels!!More

A cosy cafe specialising in bagels. I tried the acclaimed blueberry bagels, adorned with bacon, banana, cream and popcorn! The blueberry was mixed in the bagel batter, not as a sauce or a spread, so every bite of the bagel had a splendid but subtle...taste that fits well with the rest of the toppings (though on a personal level the popcorn was abit much 😅) Also - special shout-out for the service. We were told not to order at the counter and wait for table service but they forgot about us for around ~10mins. When we approached them, they were very sincere about apologising for our wait and gave us their award-winning coffee - on the house! Really appreciate this gesture! Highly recommended!More

We were advised that there would be a bit of a wait for food but we weren’t in a rush. I had a coffee while we waited but DH had trouble finding something he could drink. They had run out of fruit for juices and...didn’t have earl grey tea. He ordered salmon Benedict and I had avocado and chicken sandwiches. Both were enormous servings and tasted great.More

Great customer service, food and coffee here! The staff are welcoming and show a passion for coffee. They were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. My bagel was generously stacked with toppings and was delicious. The coffee I had was super and I bought two bags of...it to take home. Tucked down a quiet street with a few other interesting businesses around, I recommend a visit to this spacious but vibrant coffee shop.More

This is a beautiful cafe in a quiet lane, and easy to miss....Thanks to google we were able to locate it easily. They are coffee specialists, mainly focus song on different types of bread, pour-over, etc and of course the usual white coffees but their...bagels menu is quite interesting. We ordered the usual chai latte and chose Ethiopia Ananas (from their many option...Guess 4) for the pour- over since Kunnu enjoys the fruity, chocolaty and nougat notes Damn!! the pour-over was perfectly balanced, well extracted notes....Could taste each flavor from the profile very distinctively. From Bagels we ordered Philly (guessing...Hope not wrong) and also ordered a Reuben. Both were fantastic. The quality of meat, dressing, flavors....Just right....Yet not very sure of the portions. If we were to ignore the pricing this place totally deserves a 5/5 brunch came to a lot more than what we usually shell-out at a cafe of this standard. Definitely returning for coffees but if you are okay to ignore the pricing bit, this space is definitely a must visit.More

Bagel-themed brunch is a super unique idea and Manchester Press executes it really well. It’s located in the alley of an alley which gives it a cozy and hidden gem vibe. Its brick facade speaks to its industrial press history in a rustic way that...takes you back to simpler times. The house special blueberry-honey-popcorn-bacon-and-more bagel is a LOT in the best of ways. Definitely a must try. And the house coffee was rich and the perfect amount of sweet.More

Been here a few times now and enjoyed this hip, cosy cafe. Tucked away in one of Melbourne's laneways, this place offers a warm atmosphere with a cool, rustic vibe. I usually order an almond latte or double espresso, both of which are decent here,...though a little weaker than my usual liking. I also ordered the dragonfruit bowl which I really enjoyed - the meal looks delicious and tastes even better, is well proportioned, reasonably priced, and good value for money. Only downside was that the service could've been a bit better. Staff was a little too relaxed and it took some time before someone came to take our order even though it wasn't busy. Still, the waiter was very friendly, helpful, and served us with a smile. Overall, this tucked-away cafe offers a pleasant experience - suits all occasions, be it a catch up with friends, or a solo outing.More
