    One of the best french cafés in Melbourne. Wonderful atmosphere and absolutely amazing deserts. Hazelnut chocolate cake is a must try. Don't pass through macarons as well - coconut one was fantastic.

    You can have breakfast and brunch there! There menu has a great range of things. I’ve had the French toast and the Smashed Avocado dish. The service is great and very friendly.

    Pro tip - sit inside on days with even a slight breeze, or you, your food and your coffee will be covered in leaves and twigs from the neighbour's peppercorn tree

    One of the beating hearts of Instagram food photography. I don't think I have ever seen more of my fellow diners snapping away on iPhones in my life! with good reason the food is beautifully presented

    Had the braised pork belly and it was delicious. Coffee was ok, not as good as when they serve the Colombian one though. Love the place. Be prepared to wait in the line for a few minutes...

    Personal favourites: turkish baked eggs for breakfast and lamb salad for lunch. Very crowded especially on sunday mornings. Be as early as you can for breakfast.

    The eggs royale is great with the extra twist of tobiko (flying fish row). Make sure you turn down Hotham St to get to the front entrance.

    Had the plain croissant and savory pastry - both were super yums! Awesome croissant with very flaky outside and buttery fluffiness on the inside!!

    A great well layed out open space. Croque Madam was terrific. Great to be able to sit back and watch the pastry chefs produce world class pastries in a big open kitchen.

    Trying the macarons here should be as mandatory as it gets. Plus they serve grated carrot as side for breakfast orders and the staff are lovely.

    Café unique Australian fashion! Brazilians may wonder of first impression, but it's worth asking the fashion house!

    Not a fan of the coffee, but the chocolate tart is out of this world. New breakfast menu is great, can recommend the jalepeno briche with beans and pulled pork.

    They need to bring back their pork belly sandwich and their previous croque madame with the avacado green paste with mushrooms inside and rocket leaves.

    Order anything here, they all good ... pricey but good. Stay indoor as those smokers in the courtyard could not care whether their smokes is annoying you

    Planning an indulgent weekend? What better way to start the day than with Brioche French toast with caramelised apples, vanilla mascarpone & orange tuile?

    Flavors were really good but the food was slightly cold. I wouldn't recommend the roast duck crepe. Filling is alright but the crepe is worst I ever had
