Blue Train Cafe opens early, closes late and covers every meal requirement in between. Spacious and unpretentiously funky, Blue Train also boasts a balcony area with unsurpassed views of the Yarra and Melbourne city. As would be expected for such a busy eatery, wait times can occur - relax in the lounge area taking in the works by aspiring artists which are rotated on a monthly basis.A covered courtyard at the back of Blue Train Café lets light spill into the dining area through giant glass windows. Spacious interiors invite diners inside for meals throughout the day, or maybe just for drinks at one of the cushioned bar stools. An expansive seven-metre white wall forms an ever-changing blank canvas for local, emerging artists' works.

Food menus at Blue Train Café aim to please with mod oz fare served morning, noon and night. Feast on scrumptious breakfasts; small plates to share, larger lunch meals and hot-stone pizzas from noon until late each day; plus signature and special desserts.

A 5 out of 10. I had fish and chips on Good Friday evening. Two pieces of fish were luke warm, one was hot. The tub of tartare sauce had been put in the tub hours before so it had a hard surface - yuk! The "salad" was inedible. The chips were good - hooray! Blue Train used to be cheap and cheerful now it is expensive. You could pay the same and go somewhere a lot better.

Hoping to find a nice lunch time meal at south bank we decided to go to blue train. The menu was very diverse and reasonably priced. The location was nice being by the water. We ordered the seafood linguini, greek salad,saganaki, naan break. Unfortunately the food was substandard and we left very disappointed. The linguini was flavorless and overdone with average seafood. The salad was killed with dressing and did not remotely resemble a Greek salad. The naan was at least edible. Thank goodness they knew how to grill some cheese. I just don't understand how restaurants are able to serve and charge for below average food. Still cost us over 70 dollars including drinks.
