Compared to some other cafes in the block lane area, their service is fast, friendly and efficient. The food is well cooked and tasty. I could easily have over-eaten. I wanted more than was good for me. Highly recommended.

Wandered through the Block Arcade to find Brown Sugar cafe. It was great. Strong aromatic coffee. Egg & Bacon Sandwich (on focaccia) was great. Eggs Benedict looked amazing. Highly recommend.

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
