The name buckleys chance is in honour of our favourite rebellious English man Mr. William Buckley.

William was lucky enough to have a one way ticket on the HMS calcutta as a convict which landed at victoria’s first penal settlement in Sorrento in 1803. William decided convict life wasn’t for him, and with luck on his side, escaped and for 32 years lived on the shores of port phillip bay. His ability to survive against almost impossible odds is thought to have coined the phrase “buckleys chance”.

We take great pleasure in naming our café after this survivor and we hope you take pleasure in dining with us.
