Food and service were excellent and the tour of the MU Building was everything we'd hoped for. Thoroughly recommend. We were there for lunch and everything: service, atmosphere, wine, food and the tour were fantastic and great value for money.

Food is affordable and service considered excellent by my standard. The pull pork egg Benedict is recommended. However, soup is too salty although tasty. Would have no qualms dropping in again if happen to pass that way in future.

This is a place people find by accident I think and then drop in for their coffee or stay for breakfast. Food is brilliant, fresh juices are good and coffee excellent. I keep going back.

I have seen that place on tripadvisor and wanted to give it a go! And that was a +5! staff was suuuper nice, and the food was really good, not too pricy and definitely worth it! Enough energy for the day!

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

Hi Lyn! We start on the ground floor arcade and take the escalator up to level 1. We then use the lifts up to the boardroom and rooftop for the remainder of the tour. We aren't aware of any other dining and tour... More
