Amici Bakery-Cafe

In the heart of "cafe land" at 242 Chapel St Prahran almost opposite the Prahran Town Hall this is an impressive example of how good a cafe can be.
It has inside and outside seating and fast turnover means tables become available quickly The service provided by neat young black uniformed staff is extremely obliging. The food is very satisfying. Eggs are a specialty and large serves come with a variet y of accompaniments but there is plenty more on the menu, both Thai, Spanish, French and English style dishes. Focaccio and sanwiches are wholesome and filling - my beef and salad roll, overflowing with beef, was a good lunch and I'll have to go back to try the great looking pastries.
Nice to get leaf tea instead of tea bags too.
They boast the best bread in Prahran and their loaves certainly look magnificent.
Prices are very reasonable and you have to really pig out to spend more than $25
Comments: This is certainly worth more than the ever erratic Age Cheapeats miserable underestimated one star.
It fits well in the cafe culture of this wonderful city which matches, and generally surpasses, anywhere in the world that I've ever seen.
Score: 14/20
