A cafe that has been around for a couple of decades and has really made its mark on the local Fitzroy community. Here is a cafe that gives plenty of seating options both inside and out.

Monday breakfast proved slim pickings in this area and by chance we stumbled upon Fitz Cafe. Greeted with a very warm, friendly and genuine welcome and ordered a couple of coffees and a hot chocolate to start whilst we perused the menu on a cold Melbourne summers morning. The coffee was something special. Lavazza beans it turned out but not... More

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighbourhood Profile
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighbourhood that embraces both old and new.
