Calma has a great ambience and feels clean and tranquil. Organised reception and wonderful 1.5 hour treatment side-by-side for my daughter and I, followed by my favourite pink champagne and chocolates. Candles, relaxing music, gorgeous treatment - couldn't ask for more and very happy with the experience. Thanks Calma!

Quick, laid back, friendly service in this small Italian cafe. Pasta vongole, the special of the day was beautiful, pomodoro pizza and Eggs Benedict with ham were also great. Coffee was excellent, especially the latte. None of the food was too heavy, all are lovely light and fresh. Very good value for money. Definitely coming back. Cash only.
Authentic Japanese food. Japanese owner/chef handles food preparation and cooking. Friendly service, excellent food. Moderately priced around $14 for the bento box. There are lunch and dinner menus. Lunch set, daily specials, rice and mini don are available but no noodles. Home made ice creams are beautiful. Bento box is a popular choice. The place is small, only seats about 15. It is better to make a booking for dinner time especially on Friday/Saturday. Cash only.
The Courtyard Cafe is a great little place to drop in for lunch or afternoon tea. Surrounded by historic features the cafe is warm and inviting and boasts a friendly staff. Great menu offering a lovely devonshire tea, cakes and tea items or a selection of lunch items such as the popular fishermans basket and sandwiches. Situated down a little laneway you can enjoy your meal in the sunshine away from the busy main road. Plenty of seating area, easy access and fairly reasonable prices.
I had a berry muffin and a chino. Really delicious. These people seem like a family business. They were super friendly. Next time i have to try their seafood basket. Cause it looked fantastic as they walked passed me.
If you need/want 5 start coffee then "The League of Honest Coffee" is the place for I've been a customer for quite some time now and every day there coffee keeps getting better and better, friendly environment , extraordinary staff and of course great! tasting coffee especially the breakfast. The League of Honest Coffee you'll be seeing me every day before i go work. Beautiful.
I was recommended this cafe from a barista friend from Sydney and loved the feel of the cafe immediately. I only stopped in for a quick takeaway coffee in the morning enroute to a meeting. The cafe was super busy and I wasn't quite sure where to place my order but a really friendly staff member waved me over.
She was extremely lovely and her love for her job seemed to rub off. I also ordered a croissant, mistaking her offer for me to sit my bag on the counter as a gesture to consider the pastries on offer.
It was about a 5-10 minute wait for my coffee (there were lots of people) and I managed to scoff down the croissant while waiting.
So I didn't get the most imaginative coffee (ordered a flat white), but wasn't blown away by the coffee or croissant. (I compare all coffee to Single Origin Roasters in Sydney.)
I'd definitely go back when I'm back in Melbourne for a proper sit down breakfast as I love the feel of the cafe.
This is a fantastic bar with an oriental theme that's a bit overused, but it works. Although very easy to miss as the bar is located downstairs and hidden in between the busy restaurants on hardware lane, once down here, it's difficult to leave. The dark atmosphere and closed off tables provide a great place for groups of friends to share some social drinks. They have a wide range of cocktails, and if cocktails are not your thing, the bar staff definitely know their drinks and can easily make a recommendation for you. I've been a number of times and would continue to come back. Recommended.
I love the oriental inspired decor of this place. They have a few different sections that are partitioned which means it's a good spot good for hosting intimate drinks with a couple of girlfriends or larger functions. If you're a fan of rum, then you should definitely come here. They have an extensive rum list.
Great Latin America inspired place with cosy decor! The mushroom and chickpeas were so tasty. Credit goes to the chef as it's not easy to create such simple food with with amazing touch. Yellow tail kingfish pancetta & lemon oil is also highly recommended. Place is a bit pricey but really good, and it's not as busy as the other places near by.
The meals never disappoint here. I come here all the time for hearty traditional Italian. Great comfort food. The setting is quite quant as the furniture comprises laminex tables from the 70s/80s. The seafood pasta is a must. The garlic breads are flavoursome and so soft and moist. The old Italian charm is very appealing and it is very unpretentious.
Having just returned from a wonderful honeymoon in Florence and Venice, I was searching for an Italian restaurant in Melbourne that served authentic food in a 'trattoria' setting. Then I discovered the 'Italian Waiters' Club'! The food is simple yet beautiful, and the interior definitely takes me back to my days in Italy. Will be back again soon!
Beautiful relaxed newly refurbished interior. Plenty of natural light. Staff are very friendly and professional, know the menu well. 5-star service with smiles all the way. Menu is inspired by the old Shanghai.
