Our 2 year old was getting tired and really hungry so we just jumped into this restaurant without worrying about reviews and I am happy we did that. My calamari was very well done and the balsamic sauce for the salad was yummy! My husband was happy with the massive chicken he had too. I wish I had taken a... More

It certainly is busy with many different types of cafe's and restaurants to choose from. We met a very nice man at the front of the Triim cafe (the owner) who showed us the special breakfast...

We walked down Hardware Lane looking for a place for brekkie. We were immediately greeted by a young man who politely asked if he could assist. We continued on and were greeted by many others trying to vie for our business. We decided that the young man was the most polite so chose this cafe. The meals were well priced... More

Had lunch here as it was close to our hotel. Good service and turn the tables around very quickly.I had the zucchini fritters which were soggy and tasteless. Salsa was the only good bit about them. Cant remember what hubby had but he felt it was not memorable. It was nice seating outside so you had something to look at... More

A very efficient little cafe with excellent food. Corn and zucchini fritters with avo and tomato salsa was fabulous. The waitress was also great and very friendly.

Walked up and was immediately greeted by the friendly owner keen to show me what is great on the menu. Ordered the Morning Glory and it was a very generous sized, tasty breakfast for only $12.50!! Coffee was ok possibly because I had it in a mug. The venue is awesome and reminded me of Paris or Rome. Definitely worth... More

Randomly chose Triim for brunch on Australia Day and we found a little gem. The food was beautiful and tasty and very reasonably priced. Most importantly the staff were most attentive and very friendly. Appeared to be very well run family business and we will definitely be back.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
