Melbournians love coffee, and the arguably the finest beans are to be savoured in Degraves Street. Come early on a weekend and enjoy watching the city come to life as you devour your brunch.
Degraves St, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia
The tiny, cobble stone alley of Degraves Street knows how to jam a lot in to a small space; and it's mainly Melbourne's best coffee. Running north between Flinders Street and Flinders Lane, Degraves Street is home to tiny cafés that spill onto the street, dishing up delicious paninis and friands from early morning to late afternoon.
Named after pioneer merchants Charles and William Degraves, the strip has an old-world vibe. Adding to Melbourne's European café culture, Degraves Street is the ideal pitstop on your way from Flinders Street Station to the shopping fare of Bourke Street Mall.
