A perfect place to "escape" from the hustle and bustle of the Melbourne city centre. We went to the museum and parked in the 2 hour parking (free) at the rear of the museum, and then drove to Cardigan Street (very easy) and got a 2 hour off street park (standard rates). The cafe has beautiful home made soups, pastry items, etc The staff were wonderful, and the shop was child friendly (we had an 8 year old and 5 year old with us). Best to move from the front of the shop to the rear dining areas (one is an outdoor area). You will find the menu amazing!
