Liaison is a great little cafe tucked down Ridgway Place next to Monaco's embassy. I think they have recently been taken over by new management, but the coffee quality is still great and they make the best bagel on the topside of the city.

Since its original founders, the third pair of owners are a pleasant change from Mr and Mr Grumpy-But-Polite, who must have regretted paying what they did. Apart from a lovely laneway setting staring at the old brick wall and plane trees of the Melbourne Club,...More

This little cafe was quite busy when we were walking past so we grabbed a quick bite to eat and kept going. Our "quick bite" was a canelé and it was amazing!! You should go here just to get one of these little French delicacies!

Cute lovely little cafe unobtrusively sited down a back lane adjoining the Melbourne Club. Has a lovely feel inside or out. Absolutely beautiful coffee here. One of the best I've ever had anywhere in the world. Rich, creamy and substantive and just the right temperature....More

Tucked in a lane next to the Melbourne Club this cafe offers a quiet CBD spot and decent coffee. Food standards have dropped over the years but still better than many CBD alternatives!

Cafe Liaison is a little cafe located directly off Little Collins St between Spring St and Exhibition St. You'll definitely get the best coffee in the Paris End of Melbourne CBD here and the food is really good too!

I drop in here occasionally, and usually seat at the communal table in the back. Outside seems to be dominated by smokers - so I can't enjoy the sunny lane. Food is fairly simple, with interesting toasted sandwiches and decent breakfast fare. The two owners...More

Tucked away off little collins is an institution that all the local office workers know about. Great coffee and fast service. I do recommend.

This is typical Melbourne, fantastic food, fast and efficient service and affordable. I cannot speak more highly of a typical Melbourne cafe. Pea soup was made perfectly, a generous portion with a whole grain sour dough. Simply to produce and done perfectly. A hand made...More

Refreshing to only have to pay $3 in the CBD for a decaf latte that tastes nice. The staff are always friendly and I have also eaten lunch there one day which was very tasty (rice salad). I would definitely recommend this little gem for...More

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
