Famous for their interpretation of BLT (Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato for those who hate abbreviations), we headed there one Sunday for a late brunch (meaning eating breakfast at lunch time).
Their latte comes with an unusual thick layer of milk foam, probably double of what you usually get. Their aero press fared slightly better.
On to the their interpretation of the BLT. The Bacon is substituted for a double cooked pork belly strip (think braised then deep fried), the Lettuce becomes a spinach puree thats more of a bland pesto and the Tomato comes in the form of a gazpacho. Love the combination but I was taught by my friend that the sandwich has to be dunked into the gazpacho shot before going into your mouth which is sounds easy but freaking hard to do. The combination of soft flimsy bread and a small shot glass means they might want to educate their customers how best to eat it. In the end, I sort of left the gazpacho alone till the end and sort of sipped it while taking a bite of the melt in your mouth belly meat.
Our eyes opened wide when they mentioned their omelette had blue cheese in it. However what we found in it was more silver beet than anything else. The pungent cheese was nowhere to be seen or tasted. We almost felt cheated. Honestly, one would only order blue cheese if one loves it, so give plenty please.
Overall, we had reasons to be disappointed especially what has been said about their signature dish. However, its only a 5 minute drive and we can overlook that if we are craving for a pork belly sandwich.

Verdict: 3 stars out of 5 stars. Apart from the pork belly sandwich (seriously, its nowhere near a BLT), I can't see why we would come back except if we were lazy to drive any further than South Melbourne.
