Every type of quaint and quirky shop on Cuba St. For my favourite cafes I like Martha's the small retro cafe where everything is pink and they are sooo lovely with sweets. Or have an amazing salad with wine or coffee @Fidels where u can chat about life out the back, or follow the street from the front. For a meeting where u need space and privacy there is Southern Cross that becomes a crowded bar at night. And the Italian cafe is great when u want to treat yourself where u can feel comfortable as a single.. And that is the first 5 min of walking from Arthur St end.

Hmmmmm, not very exciting around here. Don't see what all the hype is about. Rather dull and dingy. Would have been better to stay home with a good book

I liked all the coffee bars, we were caught in a heavy downpour and ran into a little coffee shop, dont know the name , was humming with lots of student age people, lovely food, loud music and good coffee, just relaxed and looked at all the people running from the rain and going about thier daily lives, we were in no hurry, always things to look at, good shops and buskers

This pedestrian street of stores did not impress me. It seemed a bit dirty with not very impressive stores. Some people might like the ambiance bit it wasn't great for me.

It is a vintage road. Don't forget to look up tat the 1890- ish facades of the buildings. Unfortunately, lots of graffiti. A few restaurants that paid attention to their interior decoration, but most of them are snacks, take-aways, not very inviting.
It is fun to look at the vintage boutiques. There is an effort to attract people to this area, but it missing cleanness and talent in display.
