  1. My Experience

We found i25 one day early in the New Year when we were walking the dogs back from the dog park and had to navigate a series of friendly pooches to find a seat. It’s that kind of place, old school chairs (literally, not old skool) and an assortment of tables that’s a bit like playing musical chairs. If something better frees up someone will always move along to fill the different space.

I have since made 125 a bit of a regular I confess, the company, the ambience and the friendly faces make this a nice reassuring hangout just minutes from Acland street with out the tourists. It also is conveniently on the way back from the peanut farm dog park where I can drop in with my dogs without anyone getting too upset about Basho’s occasional emotional outbursts at the sight of a Pug (his nemesis).

This tolerance is what St Kilda is all about it extends to people as well and i25 has a local feel, to keep the homey feel the also offer exceptionally good value breakfast and lunch dishes, from croissants to jaffles, eggs in a pan and a delicious muesli among other things all whipped up in a tiny kitchen.
