This place has good salads and good value for money. Crispy chicken salad was delicious and juicy. Medium sized salad cost 8,90$ and felt huge.

Top notch pita, reasonably priced for a big portion. Small amount of seating but takeaway available. 10/10 would recommend.

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
