The Transport Hotel is a great place on Federation Square to sit with a drink. When it is quiet in the afternoons one can get a place with a stool overlooking the river and watch the rowing and other activities.

I guess you are paying for the location and the view. Food is maybe 20% higher than it should be. But in such a tourist Mecca as fed square I still think that is acceptable. Nice food, service pretty ordinary.

Had lunch here on our way to the MCG for a Sunday afternoon game. We were seated promptly and served in good time. Fish and chips was a big serving and I couldn't eat it all but it was a really good meal.

Central Business District
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
