Time Out Melbourne

Brave the West Gate traffic and pay your respects to the Duchess of Spotswood

Shine those shoes and brush up on your curtsey because this is one royally good café, and it deserves your full attention and respect.

Small Batch coffee is in your cup, mod-English cuisine is on your plate including a rib-sticking house-made black pudding with a perfectly fried egg, and owners that you actually want to talk to are in the house.

The menu here is designed by Andrew Gale who has done some pan-bashing at the Station House prior to setting up shop with partner Bobby Green, formerly seen at the Auction Rooms.

Don't leave without trying the Welsh rarebit (picture mustard spiked cheese fondue floating on toast) and for the love of Fergie, try the yabby omelette if it's on.

There. You've been told.
