Talk about cool cafes in Melbourne. This one ranks up very high on the cafe scene. MART130 is basically quirky way to say TRAM stop 130, as the cafe is literary at the tram stop no 130. (By the way, I am curious to know how the owners have managed to get this spot). This place is ultra cool in location, in the food they serve and the ambience. I love it.

Their food has a focus on health and variety. The have specials on weekends and they are always yummy. Pricing is reasonable. I tried the roasted pumpkin salad with fetta for a lazy late Sunday brunch and it was amazing. I must mention I am averse to salad, I just don't like'em, anything grassy just makes me sad and this was an attempt return-to-health for me and I wasn't disappointed in the least. In fact I thought of sampling their salads too in future. Another time I tried their chai and it was very nice too.
There is outdoor seating and inside they have comfy leather sofas. The only thing I would be whinging about is that there is a long queue on weekends and they don't take cards. Otherwise this is a place to go if you're hungry over Easter break as they are open all through Easter!
