Beautiful little cafe with great food

Great atmosphere.Good service. The menu is predominantly Italian, but I opted for the salad with pork cutlets and it was delicious. Good serving of cutlets with a delicious salad. Will return for sure. Yum

Chose this place simply due to the cozy look on a wintry morning. Waiter very welcoming. Ordered big breakfast and coffee. Coffee excellent (and strong). Food came quickly. Eggs perfect, great bread and chorizo perfect for a cold morning. Loved the Spanish influence and relaxed feel. Excellent start to the day.

Jumping at the first seat available when we caught the smell of their food while hunting down a new spot for breakfast. Their staff were very welcoming and quickly brought water to our table and gathered our drinks order. Their fresh orange juice was delicious and they have decent sized teapots per person (which is nice for a change!) My... More

again....so surprised by patrons not realising that their bad reviews are just 1 or 2 in the entire total.....but anyhow, let's get over how people review and cut to the chase. We have been going to Lorca for a number of years now. The only disappointing comment I can make is that we happened to find them closed on beautiful... More

It started beautifully, gorgeous attentive staff, great coffee and fabulous ambience. Unfortunately it was disappointing after that. Firstly it was incredibly cold, even inside! There are working heaters but they weren't switched on. I can only assume the owners are so frugal that they have no interest in their customers comfort. I ordered avocado with feta. The serving was small... More

My sister and I had chicken with fruits and veggie, pizza topped with tiger prawns and they tasted so delicious! Located at Centre Place. The staffs are friendly. We will definitely come back here if we visit Melbourne again.

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! Will miss this place when we return... 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
