Degraves Street and Centre Place get mixed up because they’re directly across each other. Nevertheless, these two laneways are just across the road from Flinders Street Station, the entrance to Melbourne’s CBD.  Degraves is the wider of the two, and although seen as a ‘laneway’ it’s actually a street.

With a vibe and visuals that you’d expect from Paris, it’s Italian styled cafes that you’ll see most; although there’s plenty of Tapas-influenced choices to choose from, too.
