After reading the reviews I had high expectations. Coffee was bland and so the porridge. Decor needs an update if they want to compete with the endless amount of excellant cafes in the CBD and surrounds. Staff were friendly.

I had breakfast here this morning and I have to say the building and decor certainly contribute to the feel of the place. I ordered the waffles which had lots of beautiful fresh fruit but the waffles themselves were overly sweet. Other dishes looked tasty...More

We had the granola and smashed avocado. Both meals were average, service was slow and the coffee was mediocre. It wasn’t terrible but it was nothing to rave about.

A rainy Saturday morning persuaded a journey pause. 1932 cafe caught my eye with pleasing design. Manchester Board (big brekky) thoroughly delicious and satisfying. Washed down with a good iced coffee. Recommend.

We had the Breakfast and Tour at the 1932 Manchester Building. Breakfast consisted of avocado, feta, poached egg and bacon or Waffles. The Tour was very informative. Very well enjoyed by my friends and I and goes for about 45 mins.

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

Hi Lyn! We start on the ground floor arcade and take the escalator up to level 1. We then use the lifts up to the boardroom and rooftop for the remainder of the tour. We aren't aware of any other dining and tour... More
