Dropped in for a quick pre matinee brunch . Service was quick and faultless on a busy morning with the Grand Prix crowd as well. Waitress friendly and pleasant. Both had the cheese and chives scrambled eggs on a fresh home made muffin. Delicious. Bacon ordered well cooked and it was perfect - not burnt to a crisp that you... More

I had been here for breakfast and coffee a couple of times and found service and food very good. I was very disappointed at my most recent visit I was persuaded to have the special offer of the day steak and wine. The accompanying vegetables were cold and the steak really tough and chewy such a shame. Also a pity... More

Passing Fed Square on a regular basis, this is my go to coffee spot and has been for the last few years. When I first started working in the city I thought I would give everyone a shot. After 200 odd venues time out cafe stood out like crazy. These guys know what they are doing!

Enjoyed this place when on the prior years tennis trip so made a point of coming back to watch some tennis on the big screen and enjoy some cocktails. The staff here are very friendly and helpful and its always a vibrant fun atmosphere when I've been here. Food is nothing flash but doesn't pretend to be either, its reasonable... More

We visited this cafe during a very busy "white night" & couldnt be happier with both the amazing food & great service we received which was so surprising given how busy they were. I suggest the chicken mushroom penne & the sticky date pudding...best Ive had. :)

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.
