Time Out is in one of the best locations in Melbourne in the heart of Federation Square. The main attraction is the amazing view as you gaze across to iconic Flinders Street Station or indeed to Fed Square itself.
I was enjoying the Melbourne sun one crisp morning and wondered what it would be like to have breakfast in Fed Square before work.
The food at Time Out can be hit and miss according to pundits. The Lamb Shank pie is declared a winner as are other dishes. Many people swear by Time Out as a great destination to relax and enjoy a meal.
The fit out is modern with white crisp tables and chairs and green carpet with funky design on the wall. With sixties Beatles music playing (when I visited) it had a retro funky feel.
My breakfast was satisfactory with poached eggs on toast a simple option, although the bread was a bit too dry.
The coffee here is excellent with my strong latte a hit with creamy texture and excellent flavour.
Service was excellent with greeting as I entered and good engagement. My breakfast came out from the kitchen in a few minutes.
Prices are higher than most in the genre but this may be explained by the precinct in the heart of Federation Square.
A highlight is the outdoor area with umbrellas. This is a great option on a sunny Melbourne day.
