Located behind the State Government offices at 121 Exhibition St. Handy for coffee before or after nearby meetings. Can sit inside or outside undercover in Southern Cross Lane. Order inside. Reasonable service. Coffee ok but nothing special.

My husband & I had breakfast here this morning and I was sure I ordered eggs and bacon on toast for the two of us. We only received the eggs no bacon. When I worked out cost was definitely charged for both. There was far too long a line at the counter to go back.

Located as it is in Exhibition st , Cnr Bourke St this is an ideal place for a light meal (hot or cold) if going to a Wednesday matinee at the theatre. I'm not sure if it opens at night or on Saturday or Sunday afternoons. There is a huge selection of sandwiches and hot dishes (which come in small... More

This cafe is the most convenient to my workplace. However, it used to be better than it is now. I HATE premade sandwiches. Now, thats all you can get here, apart from hot dishes or salads. The premade sandwiches have no butter. I like butter on my bread. It helps stop the juice from the vegetables and dressing soaking into... More

While spending a day in the city shopping, my friend and I popped in to this busy cafe for lunch. We found two service area's downstairs - one for the sandwich and salad bar and the other for coffee and cooked breakfasts (which are available till 1.30pm) - and a restaurant and toilets upstairs. Heaps of outdoor seating too. Coffee... More

I've had lunch at this cafe a few times as it is close to a building I often frequent for work. The staff and friendly. They have a good selection of food and drinks to choose from and they are fresh and tasty. Reasonably priced as well. They can get very very busy at lunch time but they are pretty... More

Visit at least once daily. I just have to rock up and the order is placed because they know what I have. Great variety of food to chose from if you leave your lunch at home. Very friendly staff....always a smile from the baristas. The girls could smile more tho.

Coffee was good and service friendly and efficient. We enjoyed a very reasonably priced breakfast and a great cup of coffee and shall remember for when we next visit Melbourne. Nice bacon too!

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.
