Little King Cafe is a delighful find just off Flinders Lane near St Paul's Cathedral. I found it hard to walk by. There is something that seems to draw you in.

This is not a king of pomp and ceremony but of accessability and warm embrace. Enter the sliding door and find yourself in a world of quirky collectibles including a magpie, old chrystal decanters, porcelain animals, dainty vases and cool green tiles. (And I noticed the green theme ran through the cute chairs with the small timber tables).

Staff here are engaging and exude joy. The coffee is excellent and comes in old school mugs. Unless you take away of course.

The menu is simple with choices like danishes and cakes, cinamon toast, or maybe smashed avocado. For lunch there's soup, salad and sandwiches.

Sitting at a table looking through the window to the lane outside is superb. Or settle in one of the tables outside with potentially one of the best views in Melbourne looking past St Paul's Cathedral to Fed Square.

Little King Cafe is what I love about Melbourne. Cafes that spring up and have their own expression and engagement so that you feel like you've met a friend.
