The Verdict

Proper & Son is a beautifully designed South Melbourne cafe that sits within the South Melbourne Market. The menu is simple and considered and in true market style, Proper & Son cooks with the best seasonal produce; the menu often changes depending on availability. Proper & Son serve fantastic coffee and make a selection of salads that change weekly.

With an open kitchen and an abundance of greenery, Proper & Son is a great spot to kick back and take some time out from the hustle of the market activity. All menu items can be ordered to take away too.
