Las Chicas Melbourne Reviews
Great breakfast place not just for girls in Balaclava - Las Chicas Feb 02, 2011
I'm so glad my friend suggested me to visit this place. This cafe is an institution in traditional Balaclava.
It's very well located and easy to spot. Just look for the graffiti outside - and it's pink! They are next to the station, have parking facilities - if you can find a spot. Or better take the tram, which stops in front of it. The place seemed to be small from outside. They have a couple of tables outdoors. But once you are inside they aren't that small. The decoration is great, a bit rustic but trendy and modern. Love it! And the colors are about pink and brown. Great combination.
They are open daily, serving breakfast all day long and have several vegetarian and gluten free options. The menu looks yummy and healthy. Unfortunately I didn't try the food, but had a delicious coffee. They will bring you a bottle of vodka, but it's full of water, hehe.
Be aware that this place tends to be packed, but it's worth it to wait. This is a great spot just to go by yourself and read or to go with friends to chat and enjoy a delicious coffee.
Another thing to remember, they only take cash if you are spending less than $20.
