Delightful little cafe near Balwyn Cinema. 2h free parking right outside was very convenient! Staff were all very nice and well presented. Food was delicious. Thanks chef Spencer and the other one in the kitchen .... Did not realize just how bad my French has gotten... HAHAHAHA . Thanks Sam for the nice strong latte.
