The FCP inhabits a big, beautiful space in the GPO and recalls a gilded age where 'temperance hotels', or coffee palaces, ruled Melbourne. More than 130 years on, the Federal is still a grand (now licensed) place for a swish breakfast (great French toast) or pop-in snack (ace Portuguese tarts) with, of course, a Genovese coffee chaser.
