1932 Cafe & Restaurant

1932 Cafe & Restaurant is located in the arcade of one of Melbourne’s most loved architectural icons – the Manchester Unity Building. The cafe is an art deco inspired destination and the restaurant’s 1930 era décor showcases the history of the building itself.

Fully licensed and open Monday to Friday from 7:30am until 3pm, 1932 Cafe & Restaurant offers a seasonal breakfast menu until 11am daily and a fresh gourmet sandwich bar, a range of fresh salads and other daily specials until 2pm, along with sumptuous cakes and coffee in keeping with the Melbourne Café scene.

In 2015 the Manchester Unity Building teamed up with 1932 Café & Restaurant to offer an exclusive “Meal & Tour” experience. Currently running once a month on a Sunday, you can choose from breakfast, lunch or afternoon cheese & wine sessions.
