    A favourite that I visit at least once if not a couple times a week. Wonderful, friendly staff and especially good coffees amidst the competitive coffee environment that is Collingwood/North Fitzroy. Foodwise, can highly recommend the chicken som tum- light, tasty and with extra spice it leaves your lips and tongue with a slight buzz afterwards, Highly recommended.

    Gabriel will not substitute eggs for a vegan option without charging additional. This does not treat plant based customers fairly. Irony is, eating plants only is helping the planet and all species. It's about time restaurants supported vegan customers better .

    Food, service and ambience were great! They don't do split bills, however, which was a bit disappointing.

    Party of 3 sat at a charming spot in the corner. While it was a very busy, public holiday service, everything was excellent! Appreciated the cocktails special, and amazing food. Definitely recommended and can see why it was so busy.

    You have a lovely place guys. I love the vibe and the concept. I was a little bit disappointed with food though. I had the rye bread bacon sandwich. And the presentation and filling could have been better. Overall the experience was good. But you have such a big name and I feel people expect more. Coffe was great!

    The overall experience was good, but my hash potatoes were not cooked through and was raw in the centre. I would like to try the restaurant again to see if it is better.

    Felt a bit sorry for the over worked staff but it was all a bit chaotic with too many patrons for the number of servers and the large take away queue. Servers all had masks under their noses and two had exemptions so kind of regretted staying. Food was ok and coffee for one of us was lukewarm. I think these places need to reduce the number of tables as others do to meet the staff capacity if more can’t be hired.

    A balanced All-Day menu that caters for all preferred diets. Delicious meals presented beautifully. Hang onto your chef, they may have Michelin hats in their sights. Service is top rate. Intuitive without being intrusive. Excellent value for the experience.

    The food was good, however not of great money value. The place has a great ambiance, but I would not recommend dining inside as it is very noisy and busy, I struggled having a conversation. The staff looked very stressed and rushed.

    They did a great job having to keep up with post lockdown demand and bookings. We had bar seating, behind the coffee machine which wasn’t ideal but the food and service made up for it! Will definitely come back.

    Need to disclose what’s in the Rosti because it had truffle in it and it was rank. Also there was coriander in the pork bun that wasn’t advertised… coriander should always be a listed ingredient.. it’s criminal to have surprise coriander.

    An average dining experience. Went there Monday 28 December 2020. Booked for 9.00. Ordered by 9.05 but didn't receive order until 9.40. Food average: food looked OK on the plate but a bit tasteless. Toast was undercooked. Disappointing as friends had recommended Gabriel.

    We were seated outside, but the tables were too close together - not socially distanced 1.5m apart. The cafe wasn't particularly busy when we arrived, but it took 15 mins for them to take our food order, and my food arrived cold (poached eggs on toast). Our server also consistently wore his mask under his nose. I won't be back, they don't care.
