Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If not for the delicious food I pass on this place. It needs a good scrub. Had to ask for the table to be cleaned, water glasses chipped and dirty. Toilet is a no good area. Coffee is excellent, so is the food. Great to...see affordable prices. I understand why it’s a favourite of many. I struggle with the level of cleanliness.More

Hot French Toast & Porridge special hit the spot on a chilly St Kilda morning. Friendly staff & service. Warm & welcoming. ‘It’s nice to be a bit funny looking’ painting made us giggle Highly recommend.

We stayed at the hotel across the road so decided to check this place out for breakfast. Coffee was great. Service was quick and cheerful. We both really enjoyed our breakfast, eggs where cooked to perfection.

Some of the best breakfast in St Kilda. Really good menu, great coffee and the staff are amazing. Whenever we have friends visit from out of town/overseas this is #1 for breakfast. 10/10

I do like this restaurant as the salads are reasonably priced and quite tasty and it’s good value to get an aperol sprits for $14 these days but I’ve been 4 times now over 2 months with friends and the staff have been rude every...time. Once your food gets out on the table, not once have they asked if everything is ok or did you enjoy your meal or ever ask if you’d like another drink. When you go up to pay, the rude lady making coffee didn’t politely ask me to stand on the other side so she could serve coffees but rather demanded it. 4 of my friends and I have decided never to return again due to the awful staff members. In fact the last time I went to pay, the waitress didn’t even wait for my payment to go through, instead she just charged at a pigeon that was wonderful around the shop and she was so aggressive about it. Not nice people at all.More

Excellent food and Bloody Mary’s. Typical for Melbourne brunch culture. Make sure you go early because the place was packed. Great service and food. And the prices were reasonable. Certainly worth checking out.

Deceivingly simplistic from the outside, Galleon cafe surprises. The cafe is decked out in mixed-match vintage furniture and lights which really sets an old school atmosphere (reflecting its 34 years in operation). The menu is extensive, offering all day brekkie, hamburgers and salad. Portions are...hearty and tasty, and considering the cost well priced too. Family friendly with many fellow dinners with kids. Outdoor seating available also. Would recommend if visiting St Kilda and after an authentic and tasty Aussie style brunch/lunch in a funky little spot.More

Breakfast on the Street here this morning. I had sweet potato, feta & wilted spinach croquettes served with a nicely cooked poached egg and my Son a salmon & avo bagel. Both delicious. Coffees extremely good too.
