One of the first to open on Saturday morning, so they got our business. the food was great, has to be as the competition is fierce around here. Service was good, they sorted out a small problem quickly without fuss. I found the cost of tea dear, tea dearer than coffee, I don't think so, need to fix that one.

I had breakfast about 10am on Sunday and chose RMB for a slightly different menu with some middle Eastern flavours. I sat inside in one of 10 tables for 2 at Degraves St and ordered Northern Eggs which was very tasty and filling - beans, eggs, chorizo cooked with sugo and a dollop of sour cream, and a slice of...

Very tardy service, the cafe has clearly overextended themselves as they are understaffed for the amount of people they cater for. The waitress walked past us several times not noticing us. A different waitress came out and served a couple that had just sat down a few tables up, whilst ourselves and the 2 ladies next to us, who arrived... More

Exposed to this place thanks to my running tour Melbourne and enjoyed it immensely. Breakfast sandwich with the runny eggs was a hit.

When I'm in Melbourne there is always places I like to revisit, and this place is now on the list. Had Northern Eggs for breakfast and a strong Cap. It was a great combination, eggs where cooked perfectly and the intrigue of pesto on thick cut bread did not let me down. Its a busy place, the the staff are... More

My partner and i have come here a few times because of how good the service and food is. Second time, we thought the service started to drift off but food is always good. Third time was just awful. We asked for water, it never arrived. We did not get sharing plates when we told them we were sharing the... More

3 of us ate here and we loved the food and the experience. And the decor. Staff were also personable. I had bolognaise and it was delicious and the other 2 had meat dishes, 1 of which was ribs. Both loved their meals too. We enjoyed it enough that we returned for breakfast and enjoyed great coffee and eggs.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
