OUTSIDE THE CBD
Melbourne boasts several culinary precincts outside the CBD. Lygon St, Carlton is
famed as the Italian quarter, Brunswick St, Fitzroy is an earthy multicultural
precinct being challenged by Smith St, Collingwood. Acland St, St Kilda has
been popular for years for its ethnic cake and pastry shops and has many good
restaurants and several accessible toilets. Nelson Place, Williamstown is a
popular seaside venue only 20 minutes from the city.
CAFES & REST
Parking in these precincts is difficult as they are popular and often crowded at peak
times, Thursday through Sundays. Two dedicated spaces are available in
Brunswick St, two in Smith St, one in Acland St and a couple in the shopping centre
carpark accessing Lygon St. Nelson Place is better catered with several dedicated
spaces in Nelson Place and side streets.
The following restaurants are listed with street address and phone no., and
comment about physical access. Restaurants with flat or gentle incline to the entry
