Boasting one of the most unique spaces in Melbourne – combining an art gallery, cinema, events space and café – 1000 £ Bend is a low key CBD favourite. If you've come for food, the cafe is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and it's all cheap and tasty. It's a basic menu, with all the favourites like bircher, smashed avo, toasted sangas and five kinds of burgers. A cup of joe will set you back $2.50 and there's also cheap beer on tap. Check out the never-ending calendar of events and gigs on their website, or do it right there as there's free wifi.
