We were seated in the corner on a narrow table, in front of a mirror and facing a wall. It was quite busy so we felt like we were in a rush hour market. My back often was nudged by the other customer seated closely behind me which was a little unsettling but the service was great and they really took care of us despite the mad morning rush.

I ordered my usual - Skinny Cap, which was delicious and it came with a small cinnamon sugar coated donut-like ball which was a loving touch.
|Skinny Cap + Complimentary Biscuit $4: Fuel|
|Mushrooms $18: Yummy! (Check out my smiley stockings under the table)|
|Fried Eggs $18: That yolk is mesmerising|
I loved the general atmosphere of the place, I mean look at the adorable salt and sugar jars. Daww
Overall, I enjoyed my time at the Hardware Societe. It was pricey but its not out of place in the high end breakfast cafes in Melbourne. I think it's reputation is well deserved and I would recommend it to others in Melbourne.
