Young and Foolish
Great food and I've always found the staff to be very attentive.
Great place to dine at in Brandon Park. The atmosphere, food and service were very good, and portions were very generous.
Good place for meet and eat. Although it appears well staffed, we experienced delays in ordering and having the table cleared. The acoustics were poor, with a fair amount of noise especially early, although tables laid out well,
This place was great! We had a booking of 8 and we all enjoyed our meal. Not a single complaint. Being a newly diagnosed coeliac it was so easy to get food I could actually eat and didn't taste like cardboard. we will definitely be back!!
They wait staff were lovely and very easy to chat with. Little on the noisy side just as it was busy and lots of people chatting
Lovely place for a meal or just a coffee, friendly staff and good variety of food available😊
Great service , good food , reasonable prices , went for a special family birthday and our waitress made our special guest feel so welcome. the only but was the music was a tad loud .
will certainly be back again. well done to Sam and his team.
Fabulous quality food and great staff! Always a fabulous time had by all.
Amazing food and great service.
Best burgers in town.
A good menu with a wide variety of choices. Plenty of Gluten free options, not just for people "on trend" but for actual coeliacs,
Other alergies etc. are also well catered for. well priced, good service.
Young and Foolish has filled a void that existed in the Brandon Park shopping centre, and in the region more broadly. Whilst not especially adventurous, the menu has something for everyone and the food is fresh and well-presented. Highlights? Without doubt, the friendly but unobtrusive service and the coffee.
I have walked past so many times and had wondered what it was like, so was very pleased to be able to finally try this place. It did not disappoint and I will definately be back, and will bring different people.
I have eaten here once before and was keen to go back.
Both nights that we went to this restaurant have been cold and windy outside so its rather cold when the door is used by customers.
I had the platter for 2 as my main course. Rather delicious except the ribs were chewy and the popcorn chicken overcooked. The salad was a fresh taste to break up the fried food.
I requested the sticky date pudding and wanted to know if it was served warm. The waiter said it was warmed. It tasted ok but it was not warmed and not enough sauce.
I'm not sure if i will hurry back there again..
The staff were lovely, the food was delicious and we enjoyed our time together!
It was our first time at this cafe. It is a very vibrant and sun filled space. Was very busy and glad that we had a reservation. Food was good as was the service. A little noisy where we were seated Just a suggestion, to maybe group the tables as to the seating capacity.
Great experience, thank you. Love the new style dining room, the new menu was amazing (we had the fish and lamb salad). Tasty and fresh, a really top quality meal. Service as always is awesome. Emma is great!!! Thank you we will be back really soon.
As always amazing service and the food was timely and on point. The barramundi was cooked to perfection my husband had the rib eye which was mouth watering. I love the ambience here, friendly and inviting - and the fig and almond gelato to take home was amazing. Thanks again we will be back!!!
I found the experience was quite pleasant, service was great. Bit disappointed by the amount of alcohol you get for the price, that’s something to be reviewed.
Great service and food. Definite must for a quick luncheon.
You can see, the owners have attention to detail and have but their heart and sole into the business. Well done and keep up the good work. I would love to see a little more variety on the menu, I’m certain the owners are Greek, because of the Greek sweets, why not add a little Greek influenced food to the menu, it would be refreshing amongst all the Asian restaurants. Staff are wonderful.
Good neighbourhood gem. Good service, reasonable collection of alcohol and quite a few meal choices.
Very tasty food, lovely atmosphere. Will definitely come back again.
The food and ambience of the restaurant was outstanding! Definitely recommend the brekky and brunch options. Serving time can be improved and also we couldn't split the bill as the manager advised it was not possible due to busy hours.
Overall satisfied with the experience.
Great food, service and prices. Can’t wait to go back.
Nice food with a great selection. Vegan food which is why we booked there
Nice place. We will go again
Great service, good food, not a huge range on the menu, which made it easier to make a choice. Very Happy overall
My wife and I have become regulars at Young and Foolish. We rate Young and Foolish as being one of Melbournes top eating venues. It is so good that it’s hard to see how it could possibly be improved!
We have in the past viewed Young and Foolish as being one of Melbournes ‘best kept secrets’ but we now notice on an increasing basis, that people are becoming aware of how good this place is. I imagine in time Young and Foolish might be forced to meet this increased demand by extending their opening hours.
The food, its presentation, the professional way in which is served can not be faulted. Perhaps the only issue I have would be the vinyl seating which can be uncomfortable, particularly during warm weather. The vinyl might wear well and be easy to clean but its not comfortable.
Other than that I give a CLEAR 10 out of 10 to Young and Foolish. Thank you. My wife and I will be continuing repeat customers.
Food with plenty of flavour served by warm and friendly staff. Their coffee beans are also very good. I always look forward to eating at Young and Foolish.
Found the menu a bit tricky to order from. I guess its very hipster and that's ok. Just felt like a seafood basket and ended up with fish bait.
Great place to have in Brandon Park. At last, a good dining spot. Good menu, friendly place.
I always enjoy dining at Young and Foolish.The atmosphere is good and I’ve never eaten food that wasn’t delicious.I like the individual flair with popular dishes.
My only criticism is that our drinks were slow to come a couple of times( not last thurs) Once we were given a free cocktail & an apology - very rare these days ,which impressed us.
We took friends from Hobart to Young & Foolish a few weeks ago and they enjoyed it very much and praised it later.The only negative then was that ,again the drinks were slow & the waiter brought us big red wine glasses for our champagne .It wasn’t a big deal for us & they were quickly swapped to flutes with a strawberry.
I recently suggested having coffee at Young & Foolish with a friend & she was negative saying she’d been there with a group of ladies.There was a problem with the seating ,service and they were put off by the bright green risotto.
I like the all day breakfast idea & good choices for lunch.I think a couple of additions to the dinner menu would give it wider appeal.I was disappointed when the chicken burger with Asian slaw was removed I VERY rarely choose a burger but yours are juicy & tasty & the chips fantastic.Your cakes are delightful ,always look extra fresh.Great to have a quality restaurant with reasonable prices so close to home .My husband is a fan.
The coffee is great, the service is good but the food is over rated
The food is amazing,the service phenomenal and I will definitely return
The restaurant was excellent, but the computer booking system was a complete failure embarrassing both the restaurant and the customer.
Great neighbourhood gem. The service is fantastic with staff being very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Great menu.
I had the seafood linguini which was amazing, the service was fantastic too. Our waitress took her time with a couple of people who were unsure as to what they wanted to eat, she went over their options and help them choose a meal that they too enjoyed.
Definitely will be going back to have the linguini again :)
Keep up the great work guys!!!
Great place for our business meeting, excellent service, delicious coffee and exceptional food. Thank you kindly.
I ordered a burger and was very surprised when it had no salad on it! Falafel, sauce and bun without crisp greens and tomato was unpleasant, couldn’t finish it, pity as the flavour was good.
Food was average. Prices were not reasonable for the quality. The best aspect of the place was the gelato
Food was good, service very good, the restaurant was full so pretty noisy. Might choose a less busy time next time. Considering how busy they were, the food came quickly.
Hi Ken, thanks for your review! Weekdays are a good time to visit, we're also open for dinner from Wednesday to Saturday and have an extensive menu that we'd love for you to try. We're very glad that the service was terrific and hope to see you again soon!
The staff is the best part of the place.food n desserts are always excellent.coffee is one of the best around,the gelato magnificent
Lovely review Natasha!! Thank you for taking the time to visit us, we're super happy that you enjoy your time here and we'll be sure to let the staff know of your compliments as it'll make there day.
