This cafe has attentive staff, a pleasant atmosphere and good coffee. It is well supported, so you may need to be social and share seating. Worth a return visit.

Good menu, lovely ambiance, slow service beautifully presented food, unfortunately the taste just did not live up to the expectation. They had run out of a key ingredient of a dish and claimed it would take two days to get the order of the desire ingredient. 200 m away is the Prahran Market! - open with everything you could possibly...

Not pretentious in the slightest! Food is fresh, the servings are generous and prices are more than reasonable. Friendly service and hospitable hosts. Always on my must go list every time I'm in the area.

Had brunch on a Sunday at 11am and were lucky to get a table, very popular with locals. The waitress was very helpful and served us quickly. We didn't have to wait too long for our meals and drinks came earlier. My mushrooms were delicious and the corn fritters were yummy. All of us enjoyed this experience, especially when all... More

We went for a late breakfast and even though extremely busy, we were lucky to get a table for four. Service was excellent in that we were asked straight away what drinks we wanted (let's face it, most of us know that right away). The choices for breakfast were many and all sounded yummy, so that was the only 'problem',... More

One of our Sunday favourites. Love the eggs benedict and corn fritters. Service is always good and they serve great juices.

Babble is located on a sunny corner just off the main Chapel street precinct. Lovely interior with chalkboard quotes. Open and airy setting with an equally fresh menu. We had salads. The Calamari one was delicious with spinach and avo and greens and lemon. I would go back again when needing a fresh food injection.

We had lunch at Babble on Wednesday this week. The menu looks great, I ordered the Lamb Cutlet Salad. The lamb was over cooked although there was three lamb cutlets. The lamb should be pink?

This is a great little bar/kitchen located just behind Chapel Street. Never had a bad experience here, whether for coffee, brunch or dinner. The staff are always friendly and the quality of food is excellent. If you want to share, try their grazing plate. Brilliant lamb chops with falafel balls and a variety of other tasty stuff. For dinner, get... More
