350 Bourke St, Melbourne VIC 3000
Whilst on the hunt looking for a brunch cafe, we stumbled upon this place after a not-so-quick stop at H&M. Federal Coffee Palace is located under the elegant, grand arches of Melbourne’s GPO.
We sat outside nearby the warmers, whilst being attended to by the friendly staffs. They had an array of choices, which is not too different from other cafes. Their coffee though was perfect! Nothing too fancy, but was an easy fill before the long day ahead.
