Visited this place on a recommendation of a friend. I was lucky on a Sun afternoon to get place just prior to the rush hour. The place itself quite lively and busy. I went for the bagel with smoked salmon and cream cheese. The bagel was okay and the pretzels on the side was a nice idea. The coffee is... More

The atmosphere was great and the staff were very friendly. The food was quite good and healthy. The coffee was also nice. It would be a good place for vegetarians.

Specialising in bagels I was pleasantly surprised! Great flavours and good coffee. Loved the addition of pretzels and a pickle on the side! If you're after your typical brunch/breakfast though expect limited options as it is mainly bagels. Worth a try but expect a short wait to get in.

This was a fun breakfast stop. My meal of smashed avo on bagel with greens and a pickle was filling, but breakfast without an egg is a bit unusual. The coffee was so good that we had a second cup - much to the disappointment of those who were outside waiting for a table to become available.

We had bagel avocado and feta and an acai bowl. Both were delicious. Good coffees too. Nice environment in Rankins lane off Little Bourke Street.

I used to love their subtle and not overly sweet berry and mascarpone bagel, but now their sweet bagels are over the top sweet and colourful. I had the maple matcha mascarpone with rainbow bagel, 2 strawberries and cotton candy on top. Unfortunately it was nothing compared to the former. Will. It be returning.

This place is very cool and their coffee is just excellent. I can't say that it was the best I've had in Melbourne, but it wasn't too far off. The artwork on the coffee (if the person who does it is working!) are a cool way to engage your customers and a fun novelty aspect of MP. I also had... More

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.
