Really enjoyed this place. It's a small, friendly place among a number of other restaurants on Delgrave Street. The menu is fairly short but the food was excellent. The house red went down a treat. The service was informal and excellent. We liked it so...More

We stumbled upon this laneway of restaurants with outdoor dining. The menu and buzz at The Quarter drew us in and the decision to dine there is one we didn't regret. Neither the food or the service could be faulted, we both walked away with...More

If you're a tourist in Melbourne, then lunch in one of the outdoor cafes on Degraves Street is a must. We were lucky to get a table at The Quarter - the street gets very busy at lunchtime and you might have to hover waiting...More

We enjoyed a charcuterie platter for two in the lovely cosy Degrave Street. It’s a very tiny place with seats in the middle of Degrave street. They have a small toilet which you have to ask to be opened for you.

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
