I absolutely love this new cafe!!! The owners are so friendly, service is excellent! Fantastic coffee & the food is sooo yummy; generous portions & reasonably priced. I can't wait to return - well done boys!!

From a member of Zomato:

Best breakfast in North Coburg. We've been living in Coburg North for 2 years now. With a small number of weekday-lunch basic tuck shop eateries around we'd gotten pretty used to going elsewhere for a good weekend brekky. All that's changed with the Generator though. 
Popped in on opening week and had some crispy bacon potato cakes with poached eggs and hollandaise. Partner had scrambled eggs with home made baked beans. 
My potato cakes were crispy with plenty of bacon. The eggs were perfectly cooked with plenty of hollandaise. Apparently the scrambled eggs were pretty good too with the homemade beans being a highlight.
Great coffee and friendly staff too. We've got a new favourite in our neighbourhood!

What a wonderful brunch time experience in North Coburg, just off Sydney Road, keep travelling past Gaffney Rd ... your'e nearly there . Thanks to a friends strong recommendation we headed here on this freezing day and what a find ! Ticks all the boxes. From the moment we openned the door, a warm welcome, to the wonderful delicious food and atmosphere vibe. Interior fitout is a visual feast. What a wonderful crew - thanks so much for making our day! Wish you every sucess in your new venture ! We shall return very soon and spread the word ! :)

Best hot chocolate I have ever had! It was lovely and hot and so chocolatey. I also had the berry home made waffles with a hot jam donut on top. It was amazing, good portion size and great presentation too. The staff are so friendly and helpful. It may be a small cafe and it was super busy at the time, but the staff found a place to sit for every group/couple that walked in. I will definitely be back.

I'm reluctant to review this awesome new local in case it becomes standing room only! The staff have customer service nailed - so friendly, and the food was great. We had 3 different breaky options and all loved our meals. Generous portion sizes. Delicious gluten free options. Will definitely be back.
