A nice little cafe in a popular laneway. Friendly service, decent enough coffee and a very hearty breakfast. The healthy hit breakky is a very good choice. We enjoyed it so give it a go.

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,
