Reviews of Flinders Ln, Melbourne (CBD)

"Top end of Finders lane is like living in New York"

I lived on the top end of Flinders Lane and it is like living in New York. So much so they often film TV commercials and shows to replicate NYC. Lots of cafes, bars and shops close by and they are mostly open late. Tom Thumb Cafe is one of the favourite cafes for my morning coffee. I lived here when I was single and it was the perfect spot especially to all the amazing restaurants and bars. I loved running over exhibition street to the Tan.

"On my manor"

I'm pretty lazy when it comes to gettin' out and about - I like to stay on my manor! So what do I do, well here you go......

Feel like breakfast, then skip the hoards down at the De graves end, head up market and have a great breakie @ www.cumulusinc.com.au - not cheap but it will set you up for the day.

Lunch mid week - you need to decide between all the sandwich shops, or have a real lunch. There are just too many to choose from - wagamma, rosati and ....... (google the rest yourself) and then if you want to go up market coda, bluestone, cecconis (you can even try yahoo) need I go on.

For dinner my picks for causal dining terra rossa and ..... whilst going out for one of the best meals in town it has to be ezard.

All the above are on my manor, there are too many others on my door step to mention...

Bars - I just go to terra rossa, thats a) because I'm lazy and b) because they have a good beer selection including a local and import on tap - I generally have a couple and settle back for dinner.

"Inner city living in the heart of Melbourne"

Flinders Lane is a narrow and charming lane, with one way traffic and lots of pedestrians. There are a number of high rise apartment blocks here, set in between hotels and other businesses.

The location is perfect if you like apartment living. It is right in the heart of the Melbourne CBD. The main business areas are just minutes away, as are the many tram stops so you can hop on a tram to wherever you need. Melbourne's main shopping area is in the next block, so you have everything you need at your fingertips.

However there are some downsides to this street. Parking is impossible - you will need to ensure that your apartment has parking on offer if you have a car. The street can be busy and noisy at night, as locals skip between bars. Certain spots are noisy in the morning too, as the local cafes and bars empty their bins. Triple glazing is definitely required!
