We like to start each day with a coffee and the newspapers, but some cafes aren't terribly welcoming once they realise you aren't ordering food. The staff at Brown Sugar were lovely. In fact, we went there most days for the week we were in...More

We had a steak and Pasta there. Pasta was not bad but Steak was awful. It wasn't even 100 GR steak and sweet caramelize onion on top of it. the dish does not have any design and cost around $24.

Great location but too squashy. Food was average and the coffee was cold. You feel like you are sitting right on top of each other. Not enough room. The service was also slow.

Stopped by for a quick breakfast and it was pretty decent. Good coffee too. The desserts are awesome. Service is great. A nice place for some quick bites.

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
