A late breakfast was in order and this alleyway (Centre Lane) is the place to go for brunch off Flinders Lane. The whole alleyway was buzzing with people and we liked the look of the Spanish style of Lorca. We were seated immediately and offered drinks and menus promptly. The Spanish breakfast was superb as was the ham and cheese... More

I love the Melbourne alleyway cafes. So many options and Lorca is a great one for a coffee and eggs. Slick, efficient service. Nice decor. Great bench seating at the front to watch the tourists go by. Love it.

Simple food done well. Eggs cooked perfectly, accompaniments: prepared perfectly = good. This place has it all: 1) quick service 2) minimal meal time wait 3) polite service 4) good food. The (handsome) waiter was efficient and quick to serve me, respectful of the fact that it was table service (even though I wanted to pay upon ordering), quick water,... More

We were looking for a place for breakfast and found this cafe as we were walking along Melbourne and came across this lovely, cozy looking cafe. The waiter was very friendly and offered a table next to the wall. We ordered an eggs benedict and a eggs, mushroom, spinach and tomato toast breakfast. Meals were cooked very well and lots... More

If you're looking for great food, good price and something different then head here. My husband's Spanish influenced breaky was amazing. Fantastic coffee and good service to boot!!! Not the usual 'eggs and bacon' and 'bacon and eggs' type of menu!!!

Fabulous European vibe in this Melbourne laneway treasure. This was a return breakfast visit that certainly lived up to our very positive recollection.

We like the... More
