The orange & ginger fruit bread with apple butter and mascarpone was scrumptious and the coffee was wonderful. Lovely little cafe, well worth a visit.

We ate here while visiting Melbourne just before Christmas. Its a lovely place to eat, well decorated, friendly helpful staff and gorgeous food. We had the pizzas and the prawn linguini and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Would definitely recommend.

feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the

throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
