Great customer service, good variety on the menu and fantastic food. The milkshakes are crazy and very sweet but tasty! Corn fritters were great and so was the Benny Chan. Kind of smaller meals but good food. Would go back again :)

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,

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
