“Favourite Creperie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

If in Melbourne, have a look. Quaint and cute. You will feel like you've entered a time-warp with the old embelished shop fronts and weird little boutique style retailers.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Really attractive, charming 1800s arcade with some lovely shops including the famous long-lived Hopetoun Tearooms. Nowadays you have to line up to get in but their desserts are spectacular.

“A taste of Elegance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

What a fantastic space. A reminder of the elegance of times past. It's magic is never lost on me. The fantastic little shops and cafes around the block. How could anyone not be blown way by the colours and smells found in a visit! Always look up for more magical views! We are so lucky to still have special places like this in Melbourne, oozing with history.
