This is a cracker of a cafe and viewing experience. I'm not a car nut but a few hours wandering around this warehouse of beautiful vehicles was fascinating. The building is a stunning fusion of old and the modern. Very good coffee and food. Staff...are exceptional. This experience was well worth finding. Highly recommended.More

We booked a table here for lunch for my sons and their grandad on the school holidays. Walked the strip of Swan street beforehand and stopped at all the luxury car brands, most were very accomodating for the kids. Duttons was amazing and better than...all the yards combined, they enjoyed seeing the different cars so much and seeing a couple get driven to be moved around. Food and service were lovely, well done cafe fare and the obligatory chips and nuggets for the kids. Thanks for a great day 😊More

4.5. This car themed cafe is amazing!! If you love luxury cars, this is heaven! There are soo many awesome cars here such as Ferrari, Porsche, Maserati and other classics! I can't help but to wander around and take photos of the sports cars and...their interiors! They are seriously so pretty! What a great idea to have a cafe within this car 'garage'. You can really enjoy brunch with a great view! We started off with an orange juice, and coffees which were done really well! Our food were: POTATO ROSTI with bacon served with scrambled eggs, asparagus and hollandaise. I didn't add hollandise sauce and it still tasted really nice. The potato rosti was round and like a burger which wrapped around the bacon. The scrambled eggs were cooked well and spreaded on top. CHILLI SCRAMBLED EGGS - goat cheese, Vietnamese mint, spring onion, fresh chilli and hot sujuk - The dish was really nice and had a bit of a chilli kick to it. We really enjoyed our visit here! Not to mention we took a lot of pretty car photos! Thank you, Dutton Garage!More

I definitely think they do one of the better coffees in Melbourne. I sometimes come out of my way just to have a flat white or two. They have a good selection of ‘brunch’ food. The service is impeccable. The bonus is the exotic cars...which surround you.More

If you are into performance cars, this is the place to go. A combination of a high end car salesroom and pleasant and intimate cafe. Excellent coffee and light food menu. I don't know of anywhere else quite like this. The staff are friendly, and...car aficionados, and are more than happy to "chew the cud" with you. A revheads dream!!More

Definitely one of the better coffees in town. I come here just for the coffee, drooling over the cars (figuratively) doesn’t hurt either.

Great experience and my hungry daughter wanted to look at the cars before tucking into food. The food is typical cafe style. No issues there, good quality and menu options but it's the surroundings that set it apart. Will go back for sure but only...for food unless i win powerball !More

This is a great spot for a casual bite, but the highlight for classic car buffs are the beautiful cars on display.

What an amazing place, great food and friendly efficient service. Ambiance and Melbourne history encapsulates this very tricky venue. Owners Gavin and George are real characters and if you pick the right day say hello to the legendary Jeff Dutton.....really the Pioneer when it comes...to collectable rare cars. The café’s fit out originates from the Carlton Brunetti store. The kitchen drives out some nice but easy lunch dishes, coffees are sensational and don’t forget to sample some of the pastries. There is limited street parking outside but more 2 hour parking around and under the near by bridge. The railway station is also in easy walking distance just be careful as you may just drive out in one of your dream cars. 5 stars for creating something special and so timeless.More
