A favourite place to brunch, lunch, dinner or just coffee/drink. Consistent. Attention to quality. Delicious. Warm and inviting vibe. Quite loud with lots of chattering customers so possibly not the place if you’re needing a quiet conversation. Great coffee!

Having dined at Up! previously I was a little underwhelmed by Inc but understand the pedigree and there is a set of now-standards that are expected. The bar seating allowed me the opportunity to see the chefs in their very tight kitchen space produce a...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
