We popped in here for a late lunch. The menu is mainly tapas which were really nice. We loved that we could be outside near the Yarra river on such a beautiful Autumn day.

My friend & I decided to go in for a cocktail while out exploring Melbourne. We had two Pina Coladas which were so good and came in funky little glasses. The views of the river were amazing when sitting at the tables outside.

This located on the edge of federation square. The bar has a great view of the city centre and surrounds. A great cocktail, wine and beer list. The service is exceptional. We had the cheese board and chilli chips that were really good.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
