Great coffee/brekky/lunch option with Spanish flair. Good use of small space in Bendigo's only Melbournesk hipster laneway. Enjoyed the Spanish pulled lamb with yoghurt on quinoa tabbouleh and lover rates the coffee. Other good veg and Spanish delights too. ( not open nights )

A great little hidden coffee shop just off Bendigo's main street right opposite the Law courts. Always serving great coffee and a small variety of small plate food. You can tell that these guy's love their coffee, you will too!

Cosy little cafe in lane, friendly service and the best coffee we had in Bendigo. Poached eggs and smoked salmon was generous with eggs perfectly cooked perfectly. Prices were reasonable - would definitely return.
