Always has good live music and lively atmosphere. Food is only average by melbourne standards.more of a bar than a Restaraunt.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2013

I stopped by for a quick lunch on a Saturday afternoon. It definitely seems like a small cafe for the local Venezuelan community with a couple of locals snacking or drinking with others in a very laid back table setting. The food was authentic Venezuelan, tasty, different and good value. The service was OK but it is a no-frills cafe.... More

Staying in Fitzroy

Neighbourhood Profile
Fitzroy
Fitzroy is an unusual blend of working class roots, hip gentrification, and a robust bohemian work ethic. Along Brunswick Street and its side streets, you'll find little independent shops where local clothes and furniture designers display their wares. There are specialist bookshops, funky record bars, and quality vintage clothing shops where browsing is the next best thing to buying. Gertrude Street is famous for its cuisine and art galleries, but if you want to buy an old-fashioned snooker table, there is a shop for that too. Small pubs still exist, tucked away on the corners of suburban side streets that serve up traditional Sunday roasts. Live music abounds, and the street performers play so hard you worry to tip them would ruin their concentration. Venture to the Spanish quarter on Johnston Street and you may even find street dancing. It is all happening amidst off-beat street murals and the shuffle of a very funky neighbourhood that embraces both old and new.
