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. 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.
