On this lane there are numerous cafes, bars and restaurants that have both value for money and variety. Great for an evening out.

A great place to visit with friends. It's located in a bustling section of the CBD. Lots of food options available. We stopped at a great little steak house (but I cant remember the name).

This is like the 'hawker' food centre you would see in Asia. But, just very European feel. Usually great crowd with good food. You may not get a spot at core lunch time and Fri/Sats.

Charging customers 2% for using credit card is not acceptable. Especially when the bill is more than AUD200. The food quality is ok quality and the service staff are good. But they hurried us by packing up ALL the tables and chairs outside until we...More

First an admission, this isn’t a discount cafe. That said, the food is delicious, possibly a tad overpriced but I’m still giving it 5 stars. We were in Melbourne for a long weekend and chanced upon this place. We loved it so much we went...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
