What you need to know
For those looking for a bite to eat in the city, this is easily the most famous street in Melbourne; the cobbled bluestone laneway is packed full of delicious eateries, bars and a smattering of boutique clothing stores. Degraves Street is a shining example of why Melbourne is often referred to as the most "European" of Australia's capitals, with the buzzing outdoor cafe atmosphere strongly reminiscent of a stroll through Paris or Florence and locals often decked out in Euro-style fashion to boot.
It's a laneway that's perpetually alive and vibrant all throughout the day, and offers plenty of choice in terms of eateries for breakfast, lunch or dinner with fare that ranges from baguettes, to hearty Italian meals, to typical cafe food including some of Melbourne's best Eggs Benedict. Coffee lovers in particular will soon consider Degraves Street their new favourite spot, with many of the cafes on this street dispensing fine examples of why the city is considered one of the world's "Coffee Capitals", and the options for a great cup of brew in this short and narrow laneway makes multiple return visits to find your own personal favourite a must. Situated right near Flinders Street Station, it's easily accessible, too.
