Druids is a 2 minute walk from the Brady hotel. Fresh flat white coffees and delicious bacon and egg breakfast sandwich. Nice area. Will be back tomorrow morning

The food and coffee here is very acceptable. There is a larger seating area towards the back of the cafe and there is a wide range of snacks and drinks on offer. The vegetarian panini was to my expectations and quite reasonably priced.

On the way down along Swanston and needed a quick breakfast around 8AM. Not too much time and not too much spend. Popped into Druids Cafe, ordered and sat down. The food (toast, crescent) and drink arrived promptly (two other diners and four on duty)....More

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
