Ok Breakfast - not outstanding

There was ok food here. Slow to take our order. Good size servings but not as good as over the road at cafe andiamo. My son didn't finish his Spanish eggs which is unheard of.

The food was great sat out side in the street was very nice and relaxing. Food was cooked well and tasted amazing. And the coffee was good as well. But the down side was our waitress she was rude and gave the impression she didn't want to be there or take our orders and when she did take them didn't... More

We came here for lunch yesterday during a Saturday shopping day in the city. We were shown to a table by a waitress who didn't seem very interested in being friendly. There were no menus and she didn't know what our options were so she made us get up and have a look around the walls and outside at the... More

Being a caffeine lover from way way back this place is my favorite place to drink coffee whilst holidaying in Melbourne. Service is fast, coffee is hot, single origin and supreme. The young Ricky Martin waiter does not make the viewing scene too hard on the eye either (thank you!). I will be back.

This little cafe is to be found in a little lane way from which the cafe takes its name. It is in the block between Swanson Street and Elizabeth Street right across from the Flinders Street Station. The lane way is all abuzz during the day and night. There is seating outside but we chose to eat inside which is... More

Cold winter's evening and we visited Degraves Espresso for Tapas and Sangria. Degraves offer 3 tapas for $34, that are creatively presented and enough or two people. Dining in the laneway under gas heaters with a sangria is the way to go.Highly recommended.

Casual little cafe-restaurant in a street of cafe-restaurants. The menu is a bit limited compared to some of the others, unless you turn up after 3, in which case there's tapas. The food is good though, and you can drink anything from fruit juice to sangria.
