I had heard about this interesting cafe on the internet when researching things to do in Melbourne so I'd been dying to go there. Finally I went with my best friend Tegan & it definitely lived up to its expectations!
It took us a while to find as neither of us are good with directions, but also because the building itself was not the easiest to find.
We found the lift that led up to Madame Brussels & caught it to the third floor. We walked out on to the most interesting and pretty place I've ever seen.
We walked out on to a path surrounded by fake grass, comfy couches and garden chairs & tables.
When we went we were the only people there so it was really quiet and there was not much atmosphere but we enjoyed it all the same.
The food was simply, but really, really tasty and the cocktail list was quite good as well.
We ordered two 'snacks'. One was the sausage rolls, described on their menu as "Mother of Pearls’ sausage rolls with “dead ‘orse” $10 per 4".
And we also got the "Madame Brussels famous poached chicken, chive and mayo toasted sandwiches served with lemon wedges and Tabasco" which was also $10.
We decided to get a jug of Mai Tai, made with lots of rum, orange liquor, orgeat, lime, pineapple & orange juice.
The stylish menu.
"Lemon sponge cupcakes with hot pink butter icing. The most divine that you may ever see! $5 per cupcake"
They packed on loads of icing, so it was really rich!
