We have often visited Lorca, now called Eliana Lulu, for lunch over the years. The pizzas are consistently good - especially our fav, the Camembert and prosciutto combo. Perched overlooking the lane is a fun spot to sit, as you can still chat with your...More

I've had coffee here a couple of times, but had never eaten a meal here until today, what a delicious decision I made. The special was salmon over black rice salad with broccolini and all ingredients perfectly cooked, not always true with salmon even here...More

Always visit when in Melbourne. Love the lane way feel, good coffee and never had a bad breakfast here. Watching the world go by this is the perfect place for street photography. My camera is always ready 😊

Found this great spot before an epic shopping spree in Melbourne. Wonderful service, food and most importantly the COFFEE....... The scrambled eggs were great and not too buttery as we experience in Perth. Well Done.

Arrived with only 30 min to spare before I had to attend my course in French Conversation. My order was taken immediately by a friendly young man. The vibe is good, the music doesn't interfere with the hustle and bustle of this great laneway. My...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
