Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Vicolino Caffe

 
May I take your order?
This great little cafe in Centre Place is a real nice, family run affair with a wonderfully friendly atmosphere where you feel comfortable just sitting over a cuppa, taking your time watching the world go by. Or in this case, watching the people go by.

For make no mistake, Centre Place is a funky, trendy narrow laneway made naturally dark by the tall, tall buildings on either side and a rich blend of Bohemia and decadence worthy of the most written about places in Europe.

They have these darling Bentwood chairs with tiny round tables and the menu is written in chalk on the blackboard on the right hand side. The place isn't very big but what it lacks in size is more than made up by the delicious home-cooked food. So if you're in Melbourne early, pop in and have a hot, hearty breakfast to get you going for the day.

Today's quote: Acting requires me to be very observant, which means being able to sit in cafes for hours and watch people ~ Keira Knightley.
