Very nice food. Fill your stomach by emptying your wallet.
Excellent coffee and good food, cool ambience
Great coffee and the food is quirky (and great).
The coffee and the service
The Big Daddy is the king of breakfast rolls
Great coffee selection!
Try the coffee experience!!!
Coffee is nice, if a little on the dark side of speciality coffee. All the food is actually quite spectacular.
Coffee of course and wide range of organic and ancient grain options...if you like that sort of thing. Truffled eggy goodness as well.
Steak sandwich is fantastic.
excellent coffee, but food is average
The coffee deserves the hype. So does the food. Just go.
Try a few different coffees while you decide what you want from the extensive menu. The mushrooms (Coo Koo Ca Choo) is good, but I think the Mexican Cousin is the winner here.
In a city of outstanding coffee, St. Ali stands out!
Back for more Pepe Saya's fluffy bits. Buttermilk pancakes with burnt figs, toasted hazelnuts, puff grains and crème fraîche 😍
service was good , unlike what other people have said. could be just a combination of a busy day and shorthanded on staff to have resulted in those experiences. food and coffee is great!
I thought eating in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney was pretentious until I ate here and saw things on the menu like 'Baby Iranian Figs', and 'Gas Marinated Olives'. I LOVED this place! Food to inspire!
The Barista Breakfast is great. Their choice of an espresso, cappuccino & filter.. It'll keep you buzzing for a while!
Pepe's Fluffy Bits' real Buttermilk Pancakes served with Pepe Saya Creme Fraiche 😍
Excellent fresh food! Amazing brekkies!
The breakfast menu is of the chart right now.
Coffee was really great! Unique flavour
Love the coffee, the atmosphere and the fact that you can get sugar-free yogurt with your muesli - big up!
Relaxed atmosphere with a good buzz. Interesting menu with quality ingredients and solid coffee.
They don't do siphon coffee anymore. Still fantastic coffee though. Great breakfast options.
Great coffee, lots to choose from.
The best coffee I've ever tasted. Love their self brewed coffee. The food is also very affordable and delish! The Mexican cousin and the big daddy is a must try ( in picture).
On a hot sunny day, definitely try their chilled bottle filtered coffee.
Try the chilled bottled batch brew coffee on a hot day. Definitely hits the coffee withdrawals on the head.
Utterly fabulous meals!!
Has become too big for its own boots. Staff are generally unfriendly these days and there's merch all over the place.
Coffee, breakfast, dinner
Food was overpriced and average and so was the service. Disinterested staff plus loud trance music had my girlfriend and i confused with what they were trying to accomplish.
Good coffee, nice space
Coffee here is excellent !
Beautiful coffee, great brunch food
Overrated and overpriced
The coconut granola with bald banana. Amazing!
Ancient grain salad is awesome. Best berber spice I have had outside of NYC
Not too impressed
Great tasting food but the servings are very small for what you pay for. Almond coffee was pretty good.
Sth Melbourne store I have had repeated rude service yet the Carlton North Store is 'Amazeballs' for service and not pretentious.
Great staff, great service, worth the lining up. Btw fantastic coffee
'My Mexican Cousin' aka corn fritters
Will not go back again... awful coffee and rude staff
Third attempt here. Untrained staff, wrong coffee order and when I questioned they couldn't give a fuck. I'm done with this place. So many better spots.
this is goood
Really long waits in the morning are not worth the food.
iced mocha with ice cream!
