The Waiters Restaurant (formerly The Waiters Club) has 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 The Waiters Restaurant 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. And while its no-frills service has remained but the place has been offered up a fresh coat of paint and a new set of tables and chairs. The Waiters Restaurant might have changed a little on the surface, but the vibe of the place remains, and it will always have an air of nan's kitchen about it.
