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. I stuck to the superb toasted muesli with honey, yoghurt and poached fruit, while my husband tried another of the hot dishes: we both felt that Lorca had more than replicated our initial experience. We like the... More

Came here with a group of people, missed breakfast (sounds like that might be what's best) so we had a few dishes off the lunch menu. Seemed a bit overpriced and tasted fairly average, also a limited menu but I'd expect that from a small lane way restaurant. Service was average. They forgot about our coffees. Nice lane way vibe...

We found this place down a busy side street full of colourful and interesting places to eat. We had breakfast, I had the porridge and fruit which was excellent. Coffee was great and service and price were fab. Worth visiting anytime of the day.

Visiting melbourne for work, I looked for a good spot for breakfast - I enjoyed it so much here I came back the next two mornings and had the same food each time - the porridge with cinnamon and fruit was just delicious. The coffees were good and the service fast, efficient and friendly with welcoming smiles. I could happily... More

First day in Melbourne and loved the atmosphere of the lanes. Sitting outside this small family style restaurant with one Spanish & one Portuguese chef watching the world go by was marvellous.. We thoroughly appreciated the excellent young waiter who took the time to describe the unusuall dishes on offer in details and helped us make good choices - The... More
