Description: Rue Bebelons is one of Melbournes original alleyway bars.

This is not only a great place for coffee but it is also a bar afterhours where they have the occassional live band. Small but cosy atmosphere. Their coffee is consistently good and they also make a great home made soup (made fresh daily on the premises) and served with bread for lunch - very reasonable $5. Sometimes they will... More

Rue Bebelons is a quaint place with lovely ornate decorations and the food is very appetizing. I love just sitting on the roof top bar with a cold beer in the summer watching the world go by.
