I head here when I’m in need of a fast and tasty lunch. With 3 veggie wraps to choose from (felafel, spiced cauliflower and halloumi), plus a number of other veggie options, its one of my favorite places to grab takeaway at Collins Square.

Central Business District
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

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
