Places to eat and drink
South Melbourne’s finest food is not restricted to the market. One of our favourite places to enjoy a delicious cup of coffee and breakfast is in the beautifully designed café The Kettle Black. The friendly staff here serve you an array of delicious meals from an expertly curated menu. You truly experience all that is great about Melbourne café culture when you pay a visit to The Kettle Black.
If you are more inclined towards a sandwich, fresh or toasted, then Hector’s Deli is a must-visit destination. Serving extremely flavourful “sangas”, this Coventry Street staple is the perfect place to visit for lunch. Our expert tip is to get in early and beat the queues which start to ramp up around midday each day.
When it comes to dinner time you can’t look past a visit to either Half Acre or Park Street Pasta & Wine. Half Acre offers diners a refined take on Australian pub classics all served in a gorgeous naturally illuminated courtyard. Park Street Pasta & Wine, as the name suggests, specialises in classic Italian dishes with a modern interpretation. Don’t let their concise assortment of wines fool you, here the selection is certainly quality over quantity.
