Really good little cafe with great tasting coffee with plenty of non milk option including soy and coconut milk and great smoothie options including two green smoothies. The food is good and service is reliable. Only downside is the constant smell of rotting garbage from...More

Good spot for a quick vegan cake and coffee - their vegan choc cake is great as is their citrus and poppy seed cake, try them! Found the carrot cake heavy and stodgy. Golden lattes also really good. Seating inside is a bit cramped (very...More

A nice place to pick up vegan snacks and specialised lunches and meals with special dietary requirements. Service is a bit toffee nosed, but the food is okay. Nowhere to sit and mingle though.

Thought this little place would be more deli like than cold premade foods. Nothing is ordered to receive fresh, which makes the pies and rolls eithere a bit tough to gnaw on or soggy and limp after reheating. Didn't see much in the way of...More

It wouldn't be a trip to Australia without eating a pie or two, but if you're a vegan your options are limited! TOFWD had a couple of tasty vegan options with a reasonable side salad and surprisingly tasty relish. Quite expensive, but that's pretty much...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
