Cosy, Quirky & Comfortable, Enjoy Brunch at Santucci's
Located on busy Toorak Road is this little gem, Santucci's café. This quirky restaurant does not attract a lot of attention from the outside but when you step in, you will be captivated by the buzz and excitement, the peculiar decors, warm atmosphere and the friendly staff that welcomes you to your seat.

The interior of Santucci's is very welcoming with warm earthy tones that sprawl across the walls, the wooden floorboards and unique ornaments that complete the relaxed 'at home' ambience. The noise inside the café does not overwhelm conversation but for those who prefer sitting outdoors, the small pathway towards the back leads into an alfresco area. It is a quieter space for those who wish to enjoy the fresh air, a cup of coffee and their reading.

The café is opened daily 7am to 5pm and its menu features an open breakfast and lunch selection. The all-day breakfast is definitely a big winner for those who enjoy a good brunch.

What makes Santucci a must revisit café is their consistently well-made coffees. While the quality and taste of some cafes varies depending on luck, coffees here are creamy and consistent in flavour. Not to mention the creative coffee art that is bound to put a smile on your face.

I ordered the 'Create your own breaky' Poached eggs on Multigrain with field mushrooms and avocado. The food was simple yet delicious, made from quality fresh produce - food for the eyes and the taste buds.

These hand cup chips are nothing but regular. Delicious and homemade, much different to the frozen quality you may find in your supermarkets or fast food shops.

The service is very prompt, approachable and unobtrusive unless you want a friendly chat. Cheerful smiles and happy greetings bring this already unique café alive. This is my local café to go, cosy, quirky yet comfortable – the perfect place for a chat and brunch with friends.

Why not try this. The fact that its not noisy sounds very good. The standard and quality of the food is yet to be explored.

Ditto to the one in Carnegie. It's a regular of mine & always a great spot for brekkie or lunch slap bang in a shopping strip that includes everything you want. Consist ant quality food & coffee.
