Delicious coffee!

Beautiful unique little coffee stop in the most amazing little Melbourne lane! The coffee is absolutely delicious and even came with a cute little puppy face on the top! Very warm service by people who remembered my order after the first day! Have been back the next five days for my morning coffee... read more

Quite simply, if I lived in Melbourne this could become a regular. Out for a Saturday breakfast there are many choices. Lorca offered us a table... The lane was cold and I wish they had some heaters on, but everything else was warm: the hospitality, décor and the food. We had eggs benedict, Spanish breakfast and a smokes salmon dish.... More

My husband and I loved Lorca...my husband had pizza and I had the risotto (from the specials board). The food was delicious and fresh and the coffee was fantastic. The waitress that greeted us was very friendly and made us feel like we had been regular customers. We will definitely back when we visit Melbourne again. Great job Lorca :)

Had a super delicious seafood paella at Lorca today, highly recommended! They added two glasses of wine to our bill by mistake, but amended it when pointing it out. Overall a enjoyable dining experience!

Waited an hour for three breakfast meals, people who came after got had eaten before us, even coffees took 30mins to arrive! The lady who served us was as rude as to tell us off for sitting at a dirty table when it was the only one available at the time. She never apologised for the delay and spoke to... More

Lorca has excellent staff and excellent food. The food is tasty, but more importantly healthy as well. Really well made and presented. The coffee is the real star here- just divine! The staff are really friendly and helpful. We are here two days in a row when we visited Melbourne. The atmosphere of Centre Place is special. Eat here -... More

I've been lucky enough to have breakfast at Lorca twice in recent times. Each time myself and my friends have been met with a smile and quickly shown to a table with drink orders taken immediately. The food is excellent and well priced and the location screams Melbourne. Tucked away in Centre Place among the throng of busy cafes and... More

Every time we visit Melbourne, my wife and I always have breakfast at Lorca. It is a cosy quirky venue and if you manage to get a seat at the bar area looking out over the laneway you with have a constant sideshow of passers-by. It is always very busy some sometimes there can be a little delay in service... More
