Great breakfast baked eggs a specialty it seems . The only misgivings was that little or no meat with the breakfast and a limited cooked menu .however what was offerred ,from my experience and observation was excellent.

This restaurant is a bit hard to find right at the end of Hardware Lane off Lansdale St. There was a queue of people waiting for a table here. Great breakfast menu, average price around $16. Wait staff were very friendly and helpful. Payment is cash only and no eftpos or credit cards are accepted. French grocery items also for sale. Recommend the sardines on baguette. Opens 8.30am suggest arrive before 10.00am.

Been here twice for brunch. Heard about this nicely decorated cafe located in a alleyway in the middle of CBD thousand of times from friends and restaurant reviews. Food was fantastic with loving smile from the waiters along a wonderful coffee. I had great enjoyment here and I would be backed.

This place lives up to its reputation. Had the croque madame and hot chocolate. Amazing sensational food. C'est un adventure gastronomique. Truly good.

An extremely popular place in Hardware St. A good time to get a seat/table is after 9am. The baked eggs are splendid with a terrific topping & the ramekin contents remain hot to the end.
The outdoor area & entrance yellow colouring is a joyful entrance.
Service is efficient. Nice to have a good quality selection of conserves available on each table.
Quite a decent coffee here too which I ask for hot as it is served warm in Melbourne.

Thank Clio H
