The Kettle Black
Really enjoyed the friendly service and food, nice portions and really appreciated the options for those vegan individuals in our party
Great food, amazing coffee, Wonderful and friendly staff! Fun spot for brunch and catching up with mates
One of my absolute favourites in Melbourne. Beautiful unique breakfast dishes. Great coffee plated up with style. An insta foodies heaven. Lovely service and delicious food
Excellent service & food. Will definitely be back!!
Worse food i have ever tasted really overrated, expensive, toilets were mess, we customers pay allot of money we expect quality, cleanliness. Only good thing about this place is the architect of building but we can’t eat building.
Excellent late lunch spot on a Saturday afternoon! Kettle Black's menu is well curated with options for many tastes and preferences. The bubbles are fantastic, too! Overall, an incredible place for an enjoyable time with friends.
Gorgeous venue with friendly and helpful staff!
Went for the ginger waffles, was delicious and generous portion, I wasn’t fit to finish. Staff were lovely also.
Great location, vibrant and energetic staff, food amazing and would recommend the hotcakes. Staff were attentive and left nothing to chance. Well done
Delicious food. Servings are big. Beautiful place to dine.
We had a number of different staff asking how everything was throughout the meal. Sometimes directly after one another. Was a touch annoying.
Otherwise everything was fantastic. The food, service, coffee and mimosas were all great. Definitely recommend.
Amazing architecture! Fabulous food! Fantastic staff!!!
Good coffee. Food was a bit underwhelming but not bad
Great experience with friendly staff who were so accommodating. Can always trust it to have good food and service!
Great food in a good location with friendly staff
Kettle Black is always a lovely place to eat! However when half of our group were running a bit late - some staff members were not very nice with the judgemental looks that were floating over to the table! Some people can run into trouble before coming to your cafe 😂
Would be keen to come again with family & and friends
Had a great time enjoying great coffee and food. Thanks
Great place to catch up with friends. Coffee and food great!
The restaurant itself was very nice and the food was pretty good.
Why 2 stars? Their booking system insists on sending me spam asking me to leave a review.
I’m forced to book online - i do not wish to get spammed by some 2 bit online booking system that has my name, phone number and email address. When venues start using online booking sites that dont have their own agenda the world will be a better place.
Lovely staff, delicious food, pretty interior, great ambience
Reservation was for High top seating when booked with OpenTable, but it showed Outdoor seating in Kettle black system so there were additional 30 mins wait as a result. The staff also forgot about the coffee order that was placed. Not a great first time experience.
Delicious breakfast in a beautiful setting. We had the eggs benedict and mushrooms and will return to try other things on the menu. Very convenient for a late breakfast after a walk around the tan or Albert Park lake.
Midway through the meal the background music got a lot louder which made it harder to talk
Food and service was great but there were just too many flies/insects flying around while we eat even if dined inside.
Incredible food and coffee! Modern provincial fit out is hard to not photograph and feel relaxed in.
Couldn’t love this place more.
It was a little cold with the door open. Booked inside because we didn’t want to be cold. Otherwise food and coffee excellent
Food and service was good. Coffee can do better. Flying insects were present on the indoor dining area. Might be because of plants , although does not affect dining experience.
Beautiful experience and service, ecstatic to be dining in again!
The service was really bad. We had to stand out for 15 minutes and the waitress asked us two times whether we had made a reservation and sent people who came after us inside before she arranged our seating. The food was really bland. My partner ordered the avo meal and it was so bland. I ordered the bacon Benedict and the bacon was almost raw. Very disappointed.
The food was fairly good. But I shouldn’t have eaten outside cuz the food got cold quickly. I liked the coffee so much.
Breakfast was delicious and the staff were lovely
One of my favourite breakfast places. Great coffee
avocado on toast and pulled lamb salad were delicious with really interesting flavors. Breakfast cocktails fantastic as well - lovely for a catch up!
Positive was good came out quickly, coffee and chai were great. The hummus and kale salad was delicious. The location and setting were good.
Negative was the raisin toast and jam were not great. Also the chili crab scrambled eggs were flavourless and only some outdoor tables were heated. Also waited 5min to catch a waiters attention for salt and ended up going to find it myself.
Our first dining out experience since iso. The service and food was incredible. We had lots of space. I was so impressed. Will be back soon
Food delicious as always! Acoustics of the room made it a little hard to hear though...
The pace has a good vibe and is aesthetically pleasing but the service is very slow ( took over 25 to even be asked if we wanted a drink) even though it was average busy. Food was average, good portion sizes, but looked nicer than it tasted and overpriced for what it was. I think as well some of the menu items are not quite right in terms of having a burger, but it doesn’t come with salad or chips or anything, which normally is fine you can just order it as a side but they didn’t have that as an option so the meals felt incomplete. Friends all agreed it was average and probably won’t go back as the look of the place was the only real selling point.
Great food and service
