Staying in Melbourne cbd thought we’d try this for brekky. The moment you stepped through the door you knew you’d made the right choice. Friendly efficient staff, our coffee was on the table in a flash and the right temperature. The food wasn’t far behind....More

Clearly a popular spot for takeaway coffees, this has a nice quiet spot upstairs to have your coffee amongst a lot of artwork. So a good place for a business chat.

Out of the few cafes I had breakfast at whilst in Melbourne, this was the best. A cute little cafe, good service, nice coffee and toastie. It was a tiny little cafe, so would be unsuitable for large groups.

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
