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

The cafe is situated on the corner of Little Collins Street & The Royal Arcade. We stopped off for coffees & one or two cakes. The coffees and service were excellent and so relaxing. If you want to use the toilets you have to get the key from the bar and walk up into Royal Arcade towards Babuska, the Russian... More

A lot of times you will see a Vespa standing outside the cafe. The location is also very convenient, close to major shopping malls, and walking... More

The service was excellent and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Had a great lunch time meal the food was excellent and the wine even better (even if it was a bit pricey). Excellent coffee. Great ambience tucked away in a little arcade on Little Collins St. Will certainly go back there and recommend it to all.
