There are many, many eateries on this street. But this old style cafe has got to be the best value.It's like the old style Greek/Italian milk bars/cafes from the 1950/60s and offers a large menu at bargain basement prices. Eat and enjoy!

simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
