    Cool little aussie spot with excellent breakfast, brunch, and coffee. Specials are always killing it and the espresso is flowing. A true gem. Plus, it's byob!

    Loved the food but not for people who like a lot of space between themselves and other diners. Can get a bit noisy.

    I enjoyed their spin on breakfast sandwiches. Their traditional breakfast platters are good too. Be sure to add the Maple Bacon to your order ad a nice side.

    Brunch line can get a bit long on weekends but the food (and Aussie coffee drinks) are worth the wait.

    The space inside is a little crowded; try to get a table on the back patio if the weather allows! Great, inexpensive food.

    the eggs on the bacon stack were WAY under cooked, felt like I was eating a legit raw egg. however, the chips on the other hand were epic!

    Curious about Australian coffees? Ants Pants Café in Graduate Hospital is a great place to be indoctrinated into flat whites and long blacks—along with iced coffees made from espresso ice cream.

    When it comes to brunch, G-Ho residents know that this tiny Australia-inspired eatery is the ant’s pants. Try the bacon stacks (bread layered with bacon, tomato, arugula, a fried egg and cheese). Read more

    It's become a little too popular for the locals. Hard to get a seat without waiting. Early is best.
