About the famous George Street Café of East Melbourne

Established in East Melbourne in 1867, the George Street Café was formerly a food store. Over its 140 years of life, this venue has housed many activities before becoming a Café around 20 years ago. Open every day, the George Street Café is servicing the East Melbourne residential and professional area with top-notch tasty breakfasts and lunches, as well as serving the catering requirement of local businesses.
