Melbourne Laneway cafe at it's best!

We have visited this café a few times and we always enjoy the food, service and ambience. It is a great place to watch the world go by and enjoy a relaxed breakfast or lunch.

Tiny cafe with masses of old-style European charm situated in one of the older arcades. Superb coffee plus a good range of breakfast items.

This a regular of ours when in Melbourne. The coffee is good and we recommend the poached eggs with avocado and fetta or the fresh fruit with greek yoghurt. Can't fault the service. It gets busy after 9.30am and it's not a big cafe. In the colder months the seating outside can get a bit chilly even with the heaters.

In a laneway of little collins street, is this caffe with a spanish /english menu. Its a bit more roomy than many of the others and we enjoyed our breakfast.Fresh juice, traditional breakfast with a spanish touch of chores, but you could have a spanish egg dish that looked great, good coffee and nice people
