Efficient service and my flat white was smooth and strong. A compact menu with a good range of choices both healthy and hearty. Not cheap but my cheese omelette was very good. A busy place and a good option for business or a casual bite.

Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s
paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and

specialty stores selling just about everything. The

vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're
in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the
