HOT: Organic Wholefoods, 277 Smith St, Fitzroy

I’m very fortunate that I have not one, but two organic and bulk food stores within walking distance from my house – Organic Wholefoods and Friends of the Earth. Like a bag lady I regularly carry a collection of clinking jars, plastic tofu containers and paper bags in case I suddenly feel the impulse to […]

HOT: Lindt Chocolat Cafe, 271 Collins St, Melbourne

Look out Max Brenner and Koko Black! The CBD has a new chocolate cafe and it comes from the Swiss maitre chocolatiers Lindt.
