I love Laurent bakery in Melbourne. The cakes aren’t too overpoweringly sweet, the savoury pastries are beautiful to the taste pallet. All in all I use Laurent as a staple bakery to visit whenever I am in Melbourne. It’s lovely décor and seating reminds me of a little bit of Paris in Melbourne.

With the overwhelming choice of places to buy coffee in the CBD, THIS place serves consistently excellent coffee. And there's always something to have with it.

Our daughter lives in Ivanhoe so we popped in. Last year Laurent Ivanhoe was closed for transformations ! We wanted to see the result.... They did a good job ! The almond croissant and the latte were as nice as usual....

So many cakes, so hard to make a decision, solution buy too many cakes and get a sugar high. Have been here on every trip to Melbourne and always the same, which cake? It's a really nice pit stop in the middle of all the great arcades of that part of Melbourne.

Lovely fresh baguettes and focaccia for lunch. Good coffee and milkshakes ( so my granddaughter tells me). Ambience is rather frenchlike. Cakes and croissants etc look and are delicious. Not oarticularly cheap but a nice cafe for a nice lunch.

It was over the Xmas break and most of the CBD had ground to a halt but there was no excuse waiting 25 mins for our first coffee (Melbourne prices but excellent) and citron tart (5/5 superb). We sat upstairs which was quieter and met friends for lunch. The beef burgundy pie 3/5 been in the warmer too long. The... More

As always amazing food, chicken/avocado focaccia toasted is fantastic and always obliging of small requests for tiny humans!!

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.
