VH Tour Guide: Our Favourite Places to Eat & Drink in Fitzroy

When you've had enough of all the culture, art and shopping that Fitzroy has to offer, your next step is to find somewhere to rest and refuel.

Gertrude Street and its surrounds is home to some of Melbourne's finest dining. Below is a list of our favourite Gertrude Street bars, coffee shops and eateries. 

Calēre Coffee - Shop 1/166 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

Our go-to destination for a lovely brew. You'll find a cup or two scattered around the Variety Hour studios from Calēre Coffee


Poodle Bar & Bistro - 81-83 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

We love you, Poodle! The perfect spot for a quiet drink and nibbles at the bar, or bistro-style dining for a decadent meal. 


Archie's All Day - 189 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy

From adventurous breakky options to a fully stacked burgers and sandwiches, Archie's All Day is our idea of the perfect cafe dining experience. 


Sonido - 69 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

If you have arepas or empanadas on the brain then make your way to Sonido. This is latinx comfort food and easy, yummy dining at its best. 


Builders Arms Hotel - 211 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

We can't resist an after work bevvy at the Builders Arms Hotel. It's your typical local corner pub, only elevated. 


The Everleigh - Level 1/150-156 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

For special occasions, we recommend a cocktail or two at The Everleigh


While you're around, why not say hi? You can visit Variety Hour at 155 Gertrude St, Fitzroy from Wednesday-Sunday. If driving, there is plenty of parking on neighbouring Napier St, or you can catch the 86 tram from the city.
