    Lovely staff and fantastic service. The booking was easy and they were accommodating even we came 40 mins earlier than the booking ! the seating arrangement was a little light but the vibe was good. Coffee was good, just the dishes were on a smaller portions. Would definitely come back again!

    It's a really busy restaurant but the staff and owner (I assume) are really friendly. It has a great vibe and there's nothing pretentious about the place. The food was okay, nothing out of the norm, but it's a good portion and very filling.

    The food (both mains and desserts) was simply awesome - extremely tasty, generous portions and very well presented! A special shout out for the Lamb Rack! Service was always with a smile, friendly, courteous and super efficient! Thank you! Gonna be back with more friends…. ????????????

    The service was really good, however, @ $32 for a dish, to have soggy pork crackling is just not acceptable. I can find a better one at Coles for a whole roast pork, or make it myself, most disapointing.

    Food will not disappoint, cocktails are lovely. The seats just need to be repaired. Your stomach will certainly leave satisfied, I will be back.

    Just be careful if you have any dietary requirements, I specifically asked for NO HAM or PORK, later on after waiting for 40 min for the meals, I was surprised with chopped ham in the chicken and corn soup. The price is fair kind of!

    The crab benny was an absolute treat, the eggs were poached perfectly and the hollandaise was on point. My colleagues went the healthy route and had the Quarter greens plate and they raved about the crispy delicious kale. The staff were ultra attentive and super friendly but they were also mindful that we were having a meeting and kept interruptions to a minimum. My only (super tiny) quibble is that the fan catches the light in such a way that it gives a strange strobe light effect which isn't great for a person with migraines (such as myself). However, I'd definitely go here again :)

    The Quarter is a great place for a breakfast meeting. Its got nice food, good service and its quiet enough to talk without having to yell over the music. Coffee is pretty good too.

    The food was okay, nothing special. The price was too high for its value. Service is good however. We have to wait for 20 minutes for our food on Saturday which was a bit disappointing

    The place was small but it didn’t affect the quality of service and food. Eveything that we ordered was so great! I loved the pork belly and three cheese gnocchi and my husband loved the lamb ribs. Servings were huge too.

About the restaurant

Cafe culture

Degraves Street is one of Melbourne's cutest and most famous European-style laneways. With its cosy little cafes, aroma of coffee beans and abundant outdoor seating that flood the alley, it's what makes Melbourne such a loveable city. The Quarter Cafe is proud to be one of these restaurants along the strip. It has a bustling al fresco setting and warm interior decorated with chic European photography and exotic lamps. Breakfast, lunch or dinner – any time of day is right to experience Melbourne's cafe culture. At The Quarter Cafe breakfast includes modest yet delicious dishes like toasties and scones with cream and jam. Lunch and dinner menus carry on the Euro-vibe with a tantalising blend of world spices. Also available are delectable homemade pasta dishes like leafy gnocchi, and sexy gourmet pizzas like the vegetarian with its exotic mushrooms and aged cheese. If you're after something more substantial, you won't be able to resist the beef rump steak with pommes frits and salad. Enjoy your delicious meal with matching wine, or some churros from the dessert menu.
