I was glad to find a place open nearby my accommodation. It may have at one time been a trendier and along French lines but now the decor is tired and it doesn't have the hip vibe it may once have had . The service is friendly though and the good of good brunch quality but not amazing. The tea... More

We bought a Groupon for this cafe. A very good deal. Food and service was great. Could have had a bit more avocado and bacon in the chicken panini. My son had an awesome milk shake.

We went for our morning walk and then looked for a café that was open early. This unassuming café on Flinders Street was and we were very happy to find it. The service was excellent and the food very good. It was well priced too. I had scrambled eggs on toast and my sister had French toast and bacon. We... More

I've concluded that I can't praise this place enough. As far as I'm concerned it's an oasis on busy Flinders St. I've been here countless times and it delivers on all measures. Consistently. I had the oatmeal today. Gosh it was good. Superbly cooked. Light, creamy and delicious with lovely touches of slivered almond and strawberry with honey on top... More

We only stopped in for a coffee and muffin, but what a delight. The two waitresses were most pleasant and welcoming. They gave us complementary water immediately and helped us with directions. The coffee was great and the hot muffins lovely and fresh. Will definitely revisit to sample the menu on our next visit.

I needed a tasty breakfast near my accommodation in Flinders Street. This slightly quirky café has excellent coffee and the poached eggs, coffee and newspaper did the trick. Well worth a visit - simple, no fuss atmosphere and hospitable.

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.
