The Great Space Cafe is my regular haunt for breakfast when I am in Melbourne on business. One of the reasons is I stay at the Sofitel so this cafe is really conveniently placed but the main reason is great coffee and food. You can get everything from a very light breakfast to a monster breakfast there. On this visit,... More

This is a great cafe with good coffee and a range of happy snacks suitable for a smart breakfast and lunch. The location is great and the food,while not gourmet, is acceptable.

Located inside the mall that encompasses both the Telstra building at 35 Collins as well as the ANZ tower at 55 Collins and downstairs from the Sofitel great space is the location for many a business meeting. The coffee is good but certInly not great by Melbourne standards and it can be very loud. Food is pleasant and a cheaper... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel within the complex and wandered down for breakfast around 10am. Food was great, service was prompt, coffee was good. The environment is a mixture of small tables (seat 4) and common tables (long tables that seat 10+. A number of different customers may be sitting at these tables). The atmosphere was a buzz... More

If you stay in the Sofitel, this is possible the closest real fresh breakfast you can get. The location is "ok" being inside - a bit mall like, but good service and fresh food makes up for it.

This little cafe is located in Collins Place underneath the Sofitel Hotel Melbourne. It is part of an excellent shopping precinct which includes shops, cafes, a bar and movie complex. We chose to have breakfast here most days during an extended stay in Melbourne. The coffee was always the best especially when made by Tina. We ate the compote of... More

We decided to have breakfast here while staying at the Sofitel. The cafe is just down the escalators and is very popular with nearby city workers. So it can be noisy. But daily newspapers are provided and wi-fi. The poached eggs and bacon (no streaky bacon either!) were hot and delicious. My husband enjoyed his scrambled eggs too. Very good... More

We had breakfast at Great Space each morning over three consecutive days with two other couples. The first day being a Friday was extremely busy but we were seated and served very quickly. The food was great with plenty to choose from off the regular menu as well as the specials board. Based on our good experience there we returned... More

We four sat outside at a tiny table. Drinks arrived extremely quickly, followed by large plates of salads and sandwiches. The size of the table was well manged by charming wait staff who removed saucers and replaced them with paper napkins to allow for the food to fit on the table. Portion sizes were generous, and the flavours well balanced.... More
