The Hardware Societe was recommended to me by a number of foodie friends as the one place you must not miss in Melbourne, and they weren't wrong. This place is fab! The decor and service is excellent and the food on another level. This isn't your average cafe, so don't expect low prices, but also don't expect your every day 'run of the mill' menu items. They are all made with high quality ingredients and it is clear that each dish has been made with care and thought. Whilst the price may be above your average cafe menu's the food is also above average so it is all worth it. The coffee is also tasty.
Absolutely worth the wait for this cafe in Hardware Street. Lots of people waiting to get their taste of the delicious to be had here. Lucky to grab a seat near the back of the cafe close to the kitchen. I had a Lobster Benedict which had wonderfully cooked pieces of lobster with oozing poached eggs and a delicious citrus hollandaise. It was amazing. The cold drip coffee was a create your own affair and was fantastic. Finished off with a Mocha and I was certainly a happy camper. Service was so friendly and wonderful here too.
