Had breakfast here a couple of times and had no complaints. Staff were friendly and the food nicely prepared and service was quick. Coffee was also good. Nice and quiet on the weekend.

Drop in for a coffee and a quick catch up, sit down for a casual lunch. Great Space Cafe is a consistently good Coffee Shop / Cafe at the top end of Collins St.

It's always a good indicator when you see the locals ordering their takeaway coffees before heading to work! This cafe is always busy for a good reason; but the wait times are brief as the staff are very attentive. I always order the scrambled eggs...More

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
