A top breakfast spot!

In amongst the grungy back streets of Fitzroy is the uber cool Hammer and Tong. A transformative space with exposed beams, light filled corridors and money plant hangers and the smell of a successful kitchen. Great vibe!

Sitting in the corridor across the road from the United Fireman’s Union building with its amazing graffiti can be mesmerizing but so are the imaginative combinations of breakfast dishes served up with a surprise (like popping candy bits or tapioca dust or…..) ……washed down with carefully selected teas and coffees and a choice or 4 freshly squeezed juice combinations.

  1. Hi,
    Just wanted to let you know that we have opened a new cafe in Prahran (a
    sister cafe to the long running Port Melbourne venue). We would love you
    to come in and try our coffee and food.
    We have a number of interesting food options including Russian Specials
    and some American BBQ inspired offerings (the owners are Russian so snuck
    a few dishes onto the menu).
    Our chef is a protégé of Iron Chef Sakai. He ran 2 of Chef Sakai’s
    restaurants in Japan.

    Happy to offer you and a friend breakfast or lunch on the house. Just let
    me know which day you would like to come in.

    Thanks for your consideration.

    Best regards,
