It was about midnight on a Monday we had been to an event since about 3pm with no food and we were looking for somewhere to go. One of the guys suggested the taxi depot.

Great friendly staff. The burgers are always good. The dim sims are to die for. Hot chocolate is great. This place has it right and has not changed since the 70's

Open 24hrs the Embassy cafe is a very convenient cafe located on the western edge of the city. The food is not high class by any means but is better than the local "Late night Kebab"

The embassy axi cafe is a cafe of yesteryear. It reminded me of cafes from my youth with Italian TV playing on the wall, smokers enmasse, and average coffee and meals. Melbourne 50 years ago and yet I liked it. Must be the nostalgia kicking in.

Embassy is our Saviour. What a aesthetically pleasing palace of dim sim joy. No place on earth harnesses the dim sim cooking powers like Embassy. Ancient Double cooking techniques are obviously put in play in that magical cooking den of brutality........Steamed..........and Then Fried......how would think of the glorious dim sim madness!!!!!! The staff ......delightfull The Decor.....Devilish

This cafe is still frequented by the taxi drivers that used to work out of the offices upstairs. It's still well patronized by off duty limo drivers as well as blue collar workers seeking a tradies breakfast of dim sims, chips and coke. My favorite burger with the lot was as good as always. I recommend the mixed grill and... More
