Walking up degraves street I found a wonderful Italian restaurant where you could either sit inside or outside . Super quick service and helpful with choices . Authentic Italian dishes with the added bonus of being able to people watch ! Lovely way to finish a day of exploring Melbourne.

This iconic street has loads of little cafes and restaurants and there are people sitting in the middle of the laneway at tables just taking in the atmosphere. We loved it here.

My first time visiting Melbourne and was walking down Degraves Street. This place is really hip, lively with bars, restaurants, cafe and boutiques shops. It is close to everything. It reminds me of Newbury Streets in Boston, MA. If you're visiting Melbourne, you have to come it. Sure it is tourists area, but it is worth it.

I always stroll through Degraves Street when visiting Melbourne. It's a hive of busting cafes , eateries & boutique shops. It also is the main walkway from Finders Street Station into Bourke Street Mall. It's definitely worth visiting just for a decent cappuccino whilst people watching.

It was good but a little too busy for my liking. It was hyped up a lot and I was a little dissapointed

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.
