Caffe and Biscotti C&B

A two faced Italian Restaurant
Caffe and Biscotti C&B is an L shaped restaurant. It has two entrances, each on a different street, one for more formal dinning and the other for more casual dinning, or so it appeared from the outside. We walked right past the Lt Collins Street entrance as it looked expensive and more suitable for fine dinning, and we were just looking for a quick cup of coffee and biscuit.

Past the shoe shop we then turned into Block Place (Lane) and one shop in we saw lane way seatings and made a beeline for the place. C & B stands for Caffe and Biscotti according to the menu which translates from Italian into English as coffee and biscuit, so we had found just the spot for coffee stop. It was a bit nippy so in we went past the bar and were surprised when we found ourselves in the restaurant that we had had just avoided on the grounds of possible cost.

The menu was same no matter which entrance you entered or where you sat.

It was delightful, We sat at the rear of the restaurant that we thought we couldn't afford, within eye and ear shot of the people sitting at the same restaurant sitting in the lane way, who were talking, laughing and chatting.

We enjoyed our coffee and biscuit and could have sat there for as long as we wished even though we weren't having a meal. The Italian menu was quite extensive so maybe next time we'll drop in for dinner. I think it would be quite possible to sit hear all day drink coffee and eat through the menu
