Enjoy the perfect Janeway breakfast with a good dose of people watching. One of the best flat whites I've ever had and the smashed avocado with chilli tomatoes was perfect.

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
