It's been around since 1947 and still resembles an old Coles canteen from the '70s, but, despite missing out on the neighbouring Meyers Place revolution, the Waiter's Club remains a city stalwart.

Originally a members-only, after-work venue for Melbourne's new-Australian waiters, the restaurant now hosts a cross-generational legion of foodie fans. Tuck in to a welcoming bowl of pasta or a generous slice of tiramisu; fine dining it's not, but it's homely and dependable. In fact, its no-frills service, laminex tables and daggy curtains might remind you of Nan's kitchen as it remains immune to the evolving trends of the streetscape downstairs. Let's hope it never changes.
