The Bell Jar - Gem at the End of Smith St!

The Bell Jar is named after a famous novel about a disturbed character...

But there’s nothing disturbed about this haven at the end of Smith Street. The Bell Jar is a little off the beaten track and is a local favourite.

The Bell Jar offers one of Melbourne's best breakfasts. Corn cakes are amazing with poached eggs, relish with kick, bacon, etc. I loved it – although the relish has some real bite.

I’ve been here a couple of times and it has been a pleasurable experience on both occasions. The second time was with a large group. We dominated the communal table so it became less communal and more about us…

Ambience is important and this place is hipster cool... Great sounds - even heard Sunny Boys tunes which gave me flashbacks from my days watching them live in the 80s...

Another sensation is the baked beans with chorizo... In fact all were really happy with their meals. I had 3 coffees in one sitting as the coffee is also spectacular...

Love the big room with communal table... Love the charming courtyard... Most of all love the service... Kids loved Eidelweiss the cat! Looked happy to greet me?

The Bell Jar is worth a visit.
