Understated laneway Crossley Street is most notably signposted by the venerable Pellegrini's, a timeless tenant on the corner of Bourke Street. Along the lane, niche occupants ply everything from bespoke shirts to perfectly brewed caffeine.


Orientate yourself over an espresso from Pellegrini's with a watermelon granita chaser. If you can see Paperback Books opposite, you're in the right place. Seek a further caffeine hit at tiny Traveller Cafe, a hole-in-the-wall serving toasties and Seven Seeds coffee.


Fancy fellas can collar C. Maimone Tailor for some tailored threads, and get a no-nonsense short back 'n' sides from Windsor Gents Salon. Discerning fashion lovers can browse designer dresses at Blonde Venus.  


Now you're probably ready for pre-dinner cocktails and tapas: Crossley St Cantina has you sorted with superb Spanish. Linger on for raciones and postre or, depending on your mood, move on for award-winning fine dining at Becco or traditional pasta at casual Pellegrini's.
