Centre Place is another of Melbourne's interesting laneways with numerous small coffee shops and cafe's and it has a little more character than perhaps Degraves Street just to its south. Definitely worth a look.

Really liked the vibe of Centre Place. Shabby sort of Beyond Thunderdome-ish but somehow extraordinarily enticing. Went back for a second look.

It may not be as fancy as Degreaves Street, but with its cafes and small restaurants it offers a good variety of food to dine in or take away. There is local colour here, not just foreign tourist colour.

At the end of Degraves Street is Centre Place. At lunchtime you’ll find this place packed with workers getting their lunch because all the restaurants here are amazing. There is a wide variety of food available and for reasonably good prices too. I’d highly recommend...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

No most likely not. Christmas Day very little is open. We were there during a public holiday period when we visited and there was nothing open. Definitely plan ahead for food supplies on this day.
