“Average Poor food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

This is a very disappointing part of Melbourne's food scene, where hawkers try and drag you into their establishments, for a poor expensive experience!

“Lots of food choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

A great laneway with atmosphere - wish Sydney had something similar to Melbourne's arcades and laneways.
Amazing array of food options - you could eat here easily for a week and do something different every night.

“Perfect Brekky Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Been meaning to try Hardware Lane for ages but never got around to it until now.
Everything I was led to believe - great atmosphere, good selection of cafes and restaurants.
The touts were a little irritating "Are you hungry?" - well what else do you come to Hardware Lane for?!
Wish Sydney had a cute brekky precinct like this - or even a full brekky at these prices!

“Godd Food Reputation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Hardware lane has everything for breakfast, lunch and after work drink. We frequent this lane for lunch at Roll'd or Big Boy BBQ, and after work drinks (or breakfast) at Campari House. La Belle Miette is worth a visit in itself for the macaroons. Vibrant route for lunch hour walk, down Hardware Lane and then turn into Little Bourke Street and into Manchester Lane to grab a coffee at Manchester Press. Hardware Societé is a little further down (away from Bourke) on Hardware Street.
