They have a wide range of beers and ciders and very helpful staff. Steve made his way through several different types and we accompanied the drinking with some food. Steve had some saganaki with pickled carrots and salad. It was a thick slab that was chewy and salty but not excessively so. I went for the corn fritters with rocket and bacon and an avocado salsa. The fritters were fluffy and the accompaniments added the salty and fresh flavour hit required to lift the fritters.
We witnessed people come and go from the table and some ate, others just had coffee and all were treated with the same friendliness. I'd love it if this place was closer. I think that although we are spoilt for choice for places to eat and drink in Melbourne, there isn't a place that feels like a "local" where the staff stay longer than 6 months and get to know you and Breakfast and Beer feels like such a place even if it is in a tourist location.
