The coffee here is OK. But be prepared to wait and wait for a takeaway order while the hipster baristas preen and pose and ignore you if you're less cool that they are (whoch is everyone that's not them).

Every time I visit Melbourne I go to Mr Tulk's for breakfast. They have delicious and smooth coffee and the poached eggs are on of the best. Great decor inside and out, always smiling and not a bad spot to just chill and people watch.

Library is not my favourite place to spend time at, despite the historical, grand, old and beautiful State Library building that we are bestowed with. However, it can be now, thanks to the specialty coffee and enticing food at Mr. Tulk. Time well spent with...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
