Called in for afternoon coffee(me), iced chocolate (husband) with 2 grandchildren and I also had a wine. We ordered hot chips for the children and they shared an ice chocolate. The manager refunded us the money for the children's drinks! Next day when we called in for coffee and a drink again it... read more

We were staying around the corner at Wyndham the staff highly recommended Slate as a place to have breakfast. Well, they weren't wrong. The Slate breakfast special at $8.90 was a bargain, and the food (bacon, eggs any which way, sourdough toast and tomato) was really great. I had scrambled eggs and my wife had soft poached eggs (and there... More

Alex, Cameron & crew, are simply the best hosts. Their friendly professional approach is highlighted by the exceptional quality of meals. Their breakfast menu is wide and varied with something for everyone. Definitely worth a visit, you will not be sorry. It is my regular spot in Melbourne, Gary

After an early morning flight, getting to the city we needed breakfast. Having been here before we went to Slate with no hesitation. We were warmly welcomed and taken to a table and drink orders taken. The drinks arrived promptly and were exactly as ordered. Breakfast was a little more of a challenge, we ordered three of the breakfast specials... More

When travelling for work I come here all the time. Breakfast of poach eggs and bacon for under $10. Fast service, and plenty of table. Not too noisy. Missed the newspaper today.

Situated up the hill at the Specer end of Little Bourke this place is a friendly, easy going eatery open early for breakfast and closing late. Food is tasty and plentiful - and very reasonably priced. The addition of a happy hour 4-6pm when you can get an after work drink and nibbles is an extra treat. The location is... More

We had breakfast here during the week. The staff are friendly and food was delicious! We were disappointed that they were closed on the weekend or we would certainly have returned!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
