This was such a friendly place, I not only had amazing food and coffee, but felt very welcome and comfortable. The bean salad was awesome, and the crab and potato omelette too. The coffee experience supports small growers, and we tasted a couple of these to finish off the brunch (well, ok, late even for lunch...)

Every day while I was in Melbourne, this was my coffee spot!! They were always fairly busy, but the wait for my customized coffee was never too long. And, so worth the wait.. smooth and delicious EVERY time!

We've been to Proud Mary a couple of times, we had the cappuccino, croissant, smoothie and pancakes. Everything was very good. Must try if you're in Collingwood.

My son and I ate breakfast here and both had a yummy massive brekki. A massive homemade potato hash served with perfect poached eggs and a heap of kale and some amazing sauce. Iced chocolate and chai were great as well. A lady next to me had the Bircher muesli which looked sensational.

Went for breakfast.The place was crowded and I was told that the food is amazing. Had 2 coffees which were ok and the mushroom on toast and the tuna sashimi. The mushroom was tasty according to my partner but there wasn't enough of it. The sashimi was way overpriced for what I got. 3 small pieces of tuna, an egg... More

Proud Mary has been doing it right for a long time. The coffee is fantastic, served quickly and at the right temperature, not boiled to death. The wild bircher is sensational. Packed with flavour, fresh coconut and coconut yoghurt. Fresh blueberries and granny smith's all mixed in with honey and lemon and puffed rice for crunch. The menu is varied... More

Great atmosphere. Cool baristas who know their stuff. Dishing out espresso shots like clockwork. Watch out for the six group Slayer!

Fantastic coffee, friendly and attentive service, incredible food. What's not to love? The ricotta hotcakes came highly recommended and did not disappoint, the smashed avo was a class above the usual.

Spent an age finding this place on a very wet afternoon. Glad to get out the rain we had our usual lattes. The coffees hare are good. It's a nice little place and although we didn't eat, the food looked good too. Nice place but maybe not worth a special trip to Collingwood unless you plan to visit other places... More
