Came here with a friend who visits here every time she comes to Melbourne. No issues with finding a table and casual but nice service...initially. My first coffee - fat while was very average. Weak. Maybe I need to order double shot. and too milky. Again..maybe my taste. Meal was great. We ordered second coffee...it didn't come and then ...couldn't... More

DeGraves is tucked in a little laneway, conveniently close to Flinders Station and, I would suggest, a perfect spot for an excellent cup of coffee either before or after a train trip. It has an extensive menu with over eight or so good breakfast choices. We opted for a Panini BLT and the Breakfast Bruschetta. We shared both and agreed... More

Wondering around Melbourne exhausts you and it's time for a brunch. This place was recommended to me by a very dear friend who is a traveller and small local restaurant lover himself too. We decided to give it a go and guess what? Amazing! We had a 'Degraves B.L.T.' and a breakfast bruschetta and two piccolos of course! For the... More

Breakfast here is always a winner. Coffee here is insanely good - rich, strong and deliciously smooth. I opted for the eggs Benedict with poached eggs and smoked salmon on crunchy sourdough. My friend selected a big breakfast piled with sourdough, poached eggs, sausage, crispy bacon and mushrooms. The cafe is off one of Melbourne's favourite lane-ways with bustling cafés;... More

Ran the marathon and had lunch here afterwards. Nice simple food, quick on the service. Payment is by cash only. Was really busy which is a sign its a popular place.

Food fantastic. But very confined eating quarters which resulted in smoke being blown in our face. My worst dining experience ever.

Had tapas here one afternoon & coffee every morning whilst staying around the corner. The service and price was excellent. They have a very good barrista on the weekend who really knows how to make a double ristretto picolo. The coffee blend is extremely smooth. will definetaly visit next time in melbourne

We wanted a great coffee, happy staff, fresh breakfast options and a warm cosy interior which has big windows to people watch while you relax. Degraves do just that. Try the French toast and the BLT - had both two days in a row. It's not fancy - it's a bit grungy - or grubby you might say - but... More

Only popped in for breakfast, with the emphasis on FAST. Service was outstanding, super smooth, super friendly. Poached eggs to die for (why can't I do this at home?). Partner had a bowl of porridge with fruit (she is the healthy eater) that could have kept a football team going to game's end). The bar had a buzz of excitement... More
