Open from 09:30 AM – Thursday to Monday

When we first walked in, it felt like stumbling upon a hidden treasure! A cozy neighborhood café, it indulges in the delights of Melbourne’s kitchen. Another great thing is that it’s just a stone’s throw away from the Jordaan district. It has become our go-to spot for leisurely long weekend brunches and let me tell you, the kimchi Farinata is an absolute game-changer.

Ps. They also have a nice location in De Pijp area named Little Collins.
