The Little Mule Cafe

The Little Mule

Laneway Learning's first home was The Little Mule Cafe on Somerset Place.

Every lunchtime, The Little Mule buzzes as local workers stop in for a coffee. We're just lucky that in the evenings it doubles as the perfect classroom with big workbenches, an intimate vibe and a friendly barista.

Accessibility: wheelchair accessible, but the toilet is upstairs.

Madame Brussels

Madame Brussels

Madame Brussels has been a hidden – but far from secret – destination for over 10 years.

As Melbourne's first roof-top bar, its kooky, summery country-club feel, seasonal punches and cocktails, wines and fancy food make Madame Brussels a much-loved Melbourne icon.

Accessibility: classroom is reached by eight steps and then a lift or three flights of stairs.

Searz Caffi

Searz Caffi

Searz Caffi opened in Melbourne’s Inner West in 2015 and has quickly become a local treasure.

The food is Asian and modern Australian-influenced, and the puddings are the worst kept secret in town. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly casual dining whether it's midweek mambo special or leisurely weekend brunch spent admiring the large mural by Felipe Camara.

Accessibility: wheelchair accessible.
