Looking to taste a meat pie, we found this one conveniently located in the Block arcade. Pie was tasty, really simple, salad was fresh and we did appreciate it was not crowded as the other restaurant. Service friendly.

We ate here on the recommendation of one of the ladies at the tourist information center. Once she found out that we had never tried an Aussie pie, she sent us to Dinkum. Conveniently located in the Block Arcade, the shop offers several varieties of...More

The pies were good (not amazing, but fine for the price), and it's quite conveniently located right along the Block Arcade. There's a small amount of seating - some inside the restaurant and some on the laneway (open-air but covered). They don't do a good...More

Lack of flavour and seemed like the pies were sitting there for a while as they were quite dry. Better pies at 7/11 :(

The restaurant is located in the royal arcade. There are lots of varieties of meat pie and sausage roll. We ordered steak and mushroom pie and spicy meat pie. Both is really good especially spicy one. I recommend this place for breakfast or lunch. オーストラリアと言えばミートパイということで現地の友達に聞いてこの店を教えてもらいました。ローヤルアーケード内にあり、いろんな種類のミートパイやソーセージロールが売られています。私はステーキとマッシュルームの入ったパイとスパイシーミートパイを食べましたがどちらも美味しかったです。...More

Never before have I even considered combining a meat pie with a coffee, but sitting in a quirky Melbourne laneway it seemed the perfect combination. Making a capuccino that rivals anywhere else in this trendy part of the city, and a pie that provides the...More

During the 1990s I worked at a place just around the corner and would regularly grab a pie from here. Back then, it was an unpretentious crowded, bright, busy place with great pies, pasties and sausage rolls. Now it's a dark, sad place. If it...More

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
