This is my new favourite brunch spot in Melbourne, the food is like a piece of art and tastes just as good.

Wandered into this place out the back what a surprise. The staff were very attentive, and the food we had for lunch was quirky but excellent. The atmosphere makes for a very enjoyable meal.

Stumbled across this place on Chapel street, was immediately greeted by staff and informed of specials, before being seated. Great service, and really nice affordable meals. Would definitely come back again.

Enjoyed a very tasty dinner with friends. Atmosphere was very eclectic. Broad range of dining choices from steak through to seafood and burgers, etc. A vast selection of craft beers on tap was a bonus. Will visit again.

We had a delicious and fun family breakfast / brunch on Boxing Day. Even though it was busy, the staff were great and the meals really unusual

It's nice to hear another English accent, made me feel a lot less homesick. The food is probably only ok really, but the drinks are pretty nice and its a cool place to sit and relax.

We went here on Cup day with a very large group booking. Staff handled the orders very well and were very attentive. I had the Salmon with tabbouleh which was fresh and interesting if a little small, I definitely had room for desert but skipped...More

Chapel Street
Seek and ye shall find! Prahran is a treasure hunter’s
paradise of vintage stores, upscale boutiques and
emporiums. Chapel Street is a one-stop shop with
specialty stores selling just about everything. The
famous Chapel Street Bazaar has so many curious and
vintage knick-knacks that you will feel as if you're
in a huge and busy museum. By contrast, at the
northern end of Chapel Street, South Yarra and Windsor

There's nothing illegal about Speakeasy Kitchen Bar on Chapel Street in South Yarra, but the cobbled back alley entrance from Commercial Road to the courtyard bar may indicate otherwise. The Chapel Street frontage is a welcoming admission to a light and airy space for eating and drinking the day (and night) away. The sizable terrace out the back reinforces the secretive prohibition era theme and the impressive cocktail accompanies an all-day menu which means you have every reason to stay for the long haul.
