We wanted an early dinner before attending a show at the Regent Theatre. The Quarter is perfect. Lovely cosy surrounds with attentive waiters. The menu catered for all of us with a great variety. We had the Friday special chicken schnitzel burger, duck breast and...More

Tucked away on busy Degraves St, thus cosy little cafe is full of atmosphere. Nice decor, tempted to grab a book from the shelf. Service prompt even tho it was busy. Food on par with everywhere else.

Great place. Are inside as it was a bit cold outside but decor is great inside and breaky choices rival anything else in the lane. Eggs florentine and pancakes hit the spot before theatre matinee!

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
