Who is Henry? Why is he hanging out with a fox? Eh, it matters not - for Henry & the Fox is a popular cafe and restaurant found in the heart of Melbourne’s business district, and we don’t see any sly red-furred animals lurking around. Only good food.

Inside the always-bustling Little Collins cafe, the feel is modern, stylish, albeit slightly playful as well. The menu is as modern and playful as the decor, with a slightly UK bent to happenings. Filled with natural light, Henry & the Fox is a welcoming place for lunch, or a morning dose of caffeine. There’s a charming outdoor space also, all astroturf and shade and relief from the work day.

Given Henry & the Fox’s location, we’d be recommending it for functions like after work drinks business lunches, or launch parties in need of a unique, stylish, memorable location.

Henry & the Fox is situated on the business end of Melbourne, on Little Collins Street between King and William Streets. With the business district’s high rises all around, Southern Cross is the nearest train station.

Thank you to the team at Henry and the Fox for a wonderful function today for my son's christening. The food was delicious and plentiful and all of the guests were extremely impressed. The staff were attentive and lovely, nothing was too much trouble. If you are planning an event you must try HATF it is fantastic.

The Venue was fantastic. Libby was very helpful and the event went off without a hitch. I will definitely use Venuemob again for my next event.

My work team had a really great time at Henry & The Fox.
It was a relaxed venue and we were a bit of a handful, excited to have a team night out.
The crew at Henry & The Fox did their absolute best to cater to all of our needs. Trish was the shining star of the events crew and even had remembered most of our names by the end of the night.
Few hiccups with missing items from dishes but it was sorted it out without too much hassle.
Definitely recommend! :)
