Situated at the back of a luxury car showroom in South Yarra, Veloce Restaurant Bar is an unusual place for a casual restaurant, but it's got the cool to work. This is where you'll find some of the best coffee in Melbourne and you can enjoy it from the slick dining room as you consider a vintage car purchase. There's also a great breakfast and lunch menu, infused with Middle Eastern flavours.

Everyone needs a thoughtful coffee while considering the purchase of a vintage Porsche. And it’s not a bad thing to daydream about buying a beautiful car while eating breakfast or lunch. Veloce – aptly the Italian word for fast – is a casual place situated at the back of the Dutton’s showroom which is almost industrial in its decor. The large burnished counter, behind which is a small kitchen, displays wonderful cakes and pastries. The floors are dark, the tables are bare, the seats are simple and there’s a single thin fluorescent line running like a monorail below the ceiling.

Don’t be deceived by the apparent casualness. This is a highly professional venture with the kind of low-key high quality that brings people in for breakfast, lunch and anything in-between. Owner Mauro Marcucci was one of the original partners in Caffe e Cucina, and knows more than most about keeping food authentic and making it accessible. The breakfast menu is small, and the lunch menu changes daily, with some star signature dishes making regular appearances. Calamari Sant’Andrea, fried calamari with rocket and lemon, is a favourite. The pasta dishes are outstanding – we love the gnocchi, once served to us with a simply wonderful tomato sauce with basil. There are also bigger dishes, such as the grilled porterhouse steak. The menu option – two courses and a glass of wine for $19.50 – is a steal. The cakes and pastries are made on site and are worth every single calorie. The coffee is outstandingly good.
