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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Poor service and food After reading the reviews on Facebook I’m left wondering why the shop continues to be open. I wish I only read the reviews earlier. It appears to me that the owner doesn’t treat staff nor suppliers well. above this food is...overpriced and there was a sneaky charge for a drink I didn’t have.More

Found this spot on the App “Eat Club” where they were advertising a coupon for 50% off entire bill. So we made a reservation through the app. We then took 2 trains and 1 tram all the way here to find out they were closed....The operational hours said they were open as it was 11am on a Wednesday... the restaurant had a handwritten note on the door “CLOSED”. I’ve read other things online and apparently they were closed because they were not paying their employees properly. I will never go to this establishment again.. I will also be telling all my friends in Toorak to not bother supporting a business that doesn’t pay their employees of even have the decency to answer phone calls from prospective guests. Very unsatisfied. Ended up going to The Lucky Penny on Chapel and we will definitely be going back!More

We wanted to have a quick coffee and lunch before a house inspection. We ordered 2 sandwiches and a fruit toast and coffees which we thought would be quick as the sandwiches were ready in the display fridge. It was more than 20 minutes since...we put the order but no glimpse of the food is serving. We asked the waiter if she can follow up as we were in a rush, but still nothing. So, we decided to take away the sandwiches instead. We asked politely to the guy (could be the owner) to take away our order. He gave a very rude response as if we have done nasty things to him. Even when we paid he was so rude and grumpy and no thank you and didn’t offer the receipt. We have found later that he charged 2x fruit toast which they delivered but that was not we ordered. We ordered only one fruit toast. I guess, we are the one who should be upset and grumpy not him. Yes we were in a rush as nervous that we missed the inspection therefore we asked for take away. He didn’t need to be rude to us! We are locals and live just around the corner. He should be careful how he responses and treats the customers. We have done nothing wrong! We paid what we ordered!! No more coffee or lunch thanks! There are other places around which treat the customers with respect!! I would give minus if options available!More

Beautifully scrambled soft eggs with avocado on grain bread. Absolutely delicious. Coffee was also very good.

I know, a poor pun, but I wanted to make a statement. I had seen this place countless times and was never tempted to go there until a friend suggested we meet there this week. I now realise that I should have gone earlier. The...poached eggs were great, with a very nice smashed pea to complement. The place had atmosphere, the staff were good, seems like they have the right formula.More

Ventured here for business meeting over coffee. I do have to admit that the coffee was quite good, however at the time the EFTPOS machine was not functioning which meant that we were not able to order food in what is becoming a cashless world....Ordering my coffee the first time was fine, but the second time the order was wrong and they had to remake it, but given it was a pretty good cup of coffee when it was right, I cannot really fault it. If I'm in the area I would definitely return for the coffee.More

Friendly and helpful staff, welcoming and accommodating. All day breakfast complemented by snacks and lunch menu with a range of choices at reasonable prices. So far everything tastes good and comes to the table in a timely fashion, fresh and appealing in presentation. Not quite...all the way through the menu yet but, so far, no disappointments. Nicely lit by daylight, sections prevent excessive noise and give it a more cosy feel for a midsize cafe space. Stop for a quick chat and snack or linger to get some work done, or have a lengthy conversation.More

We visited at 11am on a cold but sunny Sunday morning, and all the tables were occupied, inside and out, with happy couples, families and groups of friends. No wonder, as the food is interesting and delicious. For example, pine mushrooms on light rye, spread...with white beans, topped with soft herbs and a poached egg. About €110 for four for four meals, with sides, plus coffees.More

As the name suggests, this place is a specialist breakfast-brunch establishment. The presentation is absolutely stunning. As others have mentioned, everyone is given sparkling water without being asked - a nice touch - other restaurants should do it.

Of all the breakfast places in the Toorak/Hawksburn area this one is a little above average. No annoying music, decor looks fresh as does the food, although the menu is more limited than one may like, with zero tolerance for substitutions. Gaseous table water is...complimentary.More

Had a lovely brunch with friends at the weekend at Grange Road Egg Shop. Staff were friendly and very accommodating of pram and young baby. Food was superb and importantly so was the coffee. Really nice relaxed Sunday vibe.... a rarity among weekend brunches in...Melbourne, where rules (no bookings, no menu changes and no split bills) are the order of the day. This gem is highly recommended!More
