After a long flight home from the UK we decided to head down to Puckle St for breakfast - our daughter suggested 42, though we had been before. Quickly shown to a table that we selected; water and glasses arrived immediately afterwards and just a short further on the coffees all arrived; complimentary papers and then the plates were only...

Very good coffee, menu with plenty to choose from. Meals are excellent, served by very polite staff in a great setting, none of that terrible harsh unce unce music that seems to come out of a few cafes in Puckle St

I live in the area and visited here for the first time a few weeks ago. Now I've been three times since then. I've only ever had the corn fritters because I can't bring myself to order anything else because they're that good! The rest of the menu looks fantastic and I've seen other people's food come out and it... More

This was a great little find. It was our first time on Puckle Street, it was freezing outside so we pretty much chose the first place that looked warm inside and had something on the menu that we might vaguely like. All day brekkie, is always a hit with us. So even though it was 2pm in the afternoon, my... More

I would consider Ourselves 'Regulars' here now after a by chance coffee date earlier this year. In true and typical Melbourne manner Cafe 42 serves well above 'the average' fare which is accompanied by good coffee and most importantly good quality tea served in a pot. Professional, knowledgeable and well mannered wait staff compliment the Proprietor in an eclectic ambiance.... More

I had 20 minutes to burn so walked up pickle street and this was the most inviting place for a coffee. Mid afternoon on a Saturday and there were lots of people -some having a late lunch while other we're just having coffee and drinks. Quick and friendly service. Coffee good and price normal
