I am always looking for new coffee places to try - I am adding this one to my list of regulars! Cute little place with a few little tables, the filled rolls, salads, and cakes looked so fresh and delicious - i will have to try them next time! The coffee I chose was single origin from Ethiopia and it... More

This café is so tiny, if you blink you may miss it. It is a quirky little place with very small wooden tables and chairs inside, and tables with stools outside. With its mismatched cups and saucers, 'collectible' teaspoons, yellowed light fittings and barely enough room to 'swing a cat', it's just like being in Grandma's front room, but it... More

As an avid tea lover, love coffee too, not a Puritan by any stretch of the imagination. I just love tea in a pot, cup and saucer, milk and sugar. I let the tea brew for a certain amount of time, normally Earl Grey, very refreshing! My grandmother taught me when I was a lad. The eccentricity of having tea... More

For this country hayseed walking down Flinders lane at 10am does my head in with the sheer amount of people around. I walked past a dozen coffee shops but each one looked way to crowded and sophisticated for my simple tastes. As soon as I saw Little Kings I knew this would be where I felt most comfortable. Lots of... More

Only had coffee there so not sure about the food. Coffee was nice and not too intense. They're in a laneway behind the church next to Federation Square. They're also tiny with 2 lovely staffs so a bit of patience is always nice to have ;)

Went and got our morning coffee here most days as just round the corner from Adelphi Hotel. Great Padre coffee and lovely female Barista.

A reallly lovely and atmospheric place, small and cosy, away from the crowds of the neighbouring main streets. Loved the gluten free sandwich and coffee.

On Flinders lane in it's own little lane way, Little Kings Cafe is basically right across from Fed square. Handmade looking furniture sits outside, and indoors looks like it could have easily been a very trendy second hand shop. Coffee's came out in miss-matched tea cups coupled with various vintage teaspoons, so cute! The important part, the actual coffee, was... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
