We were drawn to Lorca by its menu, it looked very tasty and in the end it was! But I have to say the service was not that crash hot. Our waitress was very rude and abrupt. My friends and I ordered fresh juices, they took nearly 30 minutes to arrive. From where i was sitting I could hear the... More

I had always wanted to take my partner to the urban-hipster 'centre place' As always, it is super busy and crowded. We decided to just find the place that looked the least busy, and we found Lorca. We were treated promptly and were shown to a table, I requested a larger (4 person) table, the staff were very warm and... More

First we fell in love with the lane way, then the delicious aromas coming from this restaurant, then the people watching from our table out the front, and finally, the food! We had a late lunch here and the food was excellent. Recommend the lamb dish - shredded lamb with a delicious flavour accompanied by a rocket salad, roasted capsicum... More

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
