The Maj

Queen Victoria might well have been amused here since The Maj is part of Her Majesty's Theatre in Exhibition St. This is one of the last remaining places in the city you can sit down and have coffee brought to your table for $2.50. And the 7th cup is free with the loyalty card. For breakfast I had the raisin loaf toast with coffee for $5. We were not amused at the small medallion sized slices of toast. The lesson here is to not be the first in the morning to order the toast sliced from the narrow end of the Vienna style loaf.

Tea is $2.50 if that's what starts your burner in the morning. Also on the menu is Toasted Muesli with yogurt and a side of fruit salad for $7.50. Or if you prefer your arteries to be that little bit harder there's the "Maj Muffin" for $4.50 comprising fried egg, bacon and melted cheese in an English muffin.

Wireless internet is available for $5 for 30 mins with a coffee.

Highlight: For theatre buffs there is a sense of nostalgia within these 19th century theatre walls. Framed cartoon caricatures of theatre greats hang above the dining room.

The Maj
Open for food Mon - Fri 7am to 3pm. The bar opens at other times for theatre performances. There is direct access to and from the theatre foyer or from Exhibition St.
