We stopped for a quick lunch break and were happily surprised by the quality of the food served in this quite touristic area. The 1-course + 1 glass of wine formula was then of perfect quality / price ratio. We recommend!

Camembert for entree - nice but could've done with a sauce for contrast. Then shared the mini burger and meatballs - both very nice. Dessert: ordered cheesecake and the banana fritters. Banana fritters were very ordinary - didn't have the promised salted caramel sauce and...More

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
