Gateway to the botanical Gardens!

Cafe Domain is easily accessible with public transport right to our doorstep. Just jump on the Number 8 tram from the city, or on your way back from Melbourne’s popular Chapel Street shopping strip. We are a short walk to all the famous sporting grounds including the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Rod Laver Arena, the Grand Prix track and AMI Park. It is a short and refreshing walk to the city or St Kilda Road Arts Centre, why not take a short cut through the renowned Royal Botanic Gardens, and admire the Shrine of Remembrance on the way.

Being right next to the iconic ‘Tan’, exercise is the name of the game around here, so we encourage healthy living and eating. Gluten Free, Heart Smart and Low Gi are not strangers to us, most importantly we run a constant flow of coffee, just the way you like it.
