Don't waste your time. Dirty tables, cold food and coffee, sloppy service and rude staff. One waiter seemed nice at first, but really was just fake and patronising. Such a shame they will still get quite a lot of customers purely based on their location....More

Loved my Baileys hot chocolate just what was needed in a cold Melbourne winters day. The eggs Benedict was OK but I've had better. The service was outstanding, and the food delivery was very prompt even though they were incredibly busy.

Stopped by for a quick takeaway coffee, service was good, quick and efficient couldn't ask for too much more! Not the cheapest but worth the money. Recommended for a stop or something to go whilst in Federation Square area!

Located in Fed Square opposite the tourist information, it is perfectly placed for people watching. We went on the way to ACMI and enjoyed the al fresco atmosphere and winter sun. We had to ask to see the menu (vegetarians can never be too careful)...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
