Just had an amazing breakfast at Hobba. I'd love to go back everyday to try all the different varieties of the sandwich of the day.

This is a really good place for breakfast. Excellent interior, friendly staff and above all, the food is very good as is the coffee.

We hosted a school parents get together here recently and were really happy with the food, the wine and the service. It was affordable and easy to arrange in comparison to many other options around the same area.

We stopped here for a morning coffee break - the service is excellent and the coffee lightning fast - not the best coffee in town but very nice all the same - great decor in an older warehouse style building cosy and warm an a cold day which Melbourne had enough of - easy parking in the spare lot next...

As a local I reckon I have been here 30 times. Why? Because it is terrific. Gorgeously plated delicious food, wicked or healthy with an acceptable crew and great vibe. Go there.

We mainly ordered salads, which were for the most part quite tasty. Not sure that the price was comparative for the meal.....felt a little pricey. Desserts were a disappointing... More

We've driven passed this venue sooo many times and finally stopped to try it and we're glad we did. Excellent use of space, tables set out generously & we sat in a booth of sorts facing the street.

Having seen the reviews we decided to go for a Sunday breakky here. Once our drink orders were taken it took a long time (25+ minutes) to get our food orders taken - we called out to one staff member who said someone else would be over to take our order, but ended up asking her again 10 minutes later...
