The food at The Quarter was beautiful! Unfortunately I can't say the same for the actual cafe, I think it needs a bit of love, even just some new chairs would help! It's not the most comfortable place inside or outside. The waitress was not...More

A visit to Degraves Street is always on the agenda when we visit Melbourne. The staff are friendly, it’s always busy but well worth the wait for a table. Poached eggs cooked to perfection.

We stumbled upon this laneway of restaurants with outdoor dining. The menu and buzz at The Quarter drew us in and the decision to dine there is one we didn't regret. Neither the food or the service could be faulted, we both walked away with...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
