Four of us decided to 'walk the strip' in EVP until somewhere appealed to us for breakfast. Does anything on earth smell better than eggs and bacon on a cold morning? The aroma wafting from The Imp was impossible to ignore and we could not have been happier with our choice. Coffee was great, so had to have two cups.... More

Came here for a midweek breakfast with the wife. I had a long mac topped up, very nice coffee. Quick and great service. I ate the Croque Madame, it was really nice and a good serving size. There was plenty of good and interesting choices on the menu that I would like to try. Will definitely come back and try... More

We visited the Imp for about 20 months. We were never disappointed. It was busy at times but the coffee and pastries were rich, full of chocolate, and yummy. I would recommend it to anyone!

We went to try a coffee shop as we were in Vic park for 10 days and this was the poorest coffee we had. Very bitter and to top it off there was a 2 item minimum on card meaning you had to spend almost $10 for a coffee. Threw out my coffee after the first taste and bought another... More

The only draw-back of this tiny place is that it is hard to get in for breakfast on the weekends because it is so busy. What they do best is excellent coffee and very friendly service. They also make tasty breakfasts and have a nice range of snacks and cakes. There are free newspapers and comfortable seats. Service is also... More

I have been here twice for coffee, the first visit was great. The atmosphere is cozy as its a tiny little cafe. Great on a winters morning. The second visit was not great. My friend and I ordered our coffee from the friendly barrister. We went and sat down, had one of my legs crossed under me as I sat... More
