Not hugely impressed with this choice of venue. Kitchen closes pretty early and then they start packing up chairs and tables around you about 45 minutes before they close, making the atmosphere a bit uncomfortable.

When we arrived, there were no smiles from staff members when greeting us and it felt like we weren't good enough to eat at their cafe. Either they were bored and disinterested or just didn't feel like being friendly, but a smile and pleasant staff can make all the difference. Glad the food was good though.

I was here for a networking group and found everyone to be very helpful. The iced latte was excellent. The staff were very, very helpful and couldn't do enough for us. You can eat in or dine outside on the deck. The menu is pretty good with a wide selection of choices that cater for every palette. Parking is good... More

The staff is lovely and the place is clean and nice. The coffee was cold, service is very slow, the burguers had nothing special, just regular burguers; the fries were drowing in oil. Not coming back ever.

The updated menu is great, lots of options. Sitting outside on the deck was nice and service was good. The food was great and good value. Will definitely be returning to try new items on the menu!

I took my partner here for lunch, it didn't get off to a great start. We were told we could sit anywhere, so we chose a place against the wall. We then moved to a smaller table as we told that 'they get crazy at Christmas'... Serioulsy? the place was empty... can see why. 10 mins after we sat down... More

We came across this venue and enjoyed one of their delicious all day breakfast options on this sunny day in Melbourne - namely The Vegie Patch which came with spinach, roasted tomato, mushroom, smashed avocado and fetta, baked beans and 2 perfectly poached eggs atop delicious gluten free bread. Wish i had taken a picture to share - sorry... The... More

It has indoor and outdoor seating and although the decor is quite casual and older fashioned the service is good and the coffee is fine and probably the best in Bay Street.
