Coffee rocks here


The bohemian capital of Melbourne. Fitzroy was once a rough area. Those who love noise, socialising and action belong here. Fitzroy is a temple to the boho, bookish, creative, arty, and to the politically astute.

Brunswick and Gertrude Streets attract both locals and visitors to Melbourne who love shopping for themselves. You can easily spend a few hours along Brunswick Street. When you're here, you definitely want a coffee of some description. The area is much cleaner than what it once was. On weekends, Brunswick Street is naturally crowded.
