I was recently invited to Longstory Short to try their menu. I started my meal with a coffee, a cold drip which was just what I needed after the day I’d had. It certainly hit the spot and was quite refreshing.
There were a few of us here so there was a variety of meals ordered.

Long Story Short are open for breakfast and lunch in Port Melbourne. The cafe is modern and spacious, and the staff are very welcoming.
