Small little place located at the top of Lonsdale St. Limited menu but the coffee is seriously good. Nice and strong which I appreciate as a long black drinker. Plenty of cakes and pastries if that is what you are after. Great service too.

This is a little gem in the lobby of a relatively bland business hotel. The chef is really friendly and the coffee is great. I really like this little place.

This little cafe had great coffee and food. The service was great - friendly and quick. I was especially impressed with the cold brew - not many places sell it.

If you are staying at the Oaks on Lonsdale this is a great option for breakfast. Food was fresh with a great option of sourdough toast, Banana Bread, Yogurts and Cereals with great coffee.

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
