“A very nice place, typical of central Melbourne”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

Nice place to have a cuppa tea, and then some... at Hopetoun Tea rooms, then have a very expensive, but very good, haircut, buy some trendy shirts etc. Would go there again when in Melbourne.

“A Piece of Victoriana”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

An old fashioned arcade with places to have a snack, a meal, or a high class high tea. Lots of lovely stores with helpful and chatty staff. A pleasant place to visit for shopping and a friendly meeting with friends. Worth going if in the City.

“Lovely historical place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Like going back to Victorian times just wandering through looking at the mosaic. If you can get in the Hopetoun Tearooms it adds to that experience

“Lots of things to find, while immersed in architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

Not only is this haven for chocolate lovers - with chocolate cafes and little stalls selling hand crafted chocolate. The Block Arcade also contains various little designer and interest stores, including a Russian nesting doll shop, a magic shop as well as scattered clothing desingers. It is always a frequent walking destination for me, even just to lose yourself for a while window shopping while enjoying some chocolate.
