Go to Little Mule instead! I bumped into this quirky yet exactly what I was looking for without knowing it cafe when on the hunt for Captains of Industries (hopefully will feature in a future blog).

Part bicycle shop, part cafe, I was looking to grab a sandwich to take back to the office (it was meant to be a home made soup day but an incident earlier in the day involving Binky, her never ceasing curiosity and my ability to trip on just about anything scuppered that plan). But this place lured me in and seemed so far removed from the busy city around me that I braved up, ordered my sandwich and ate a table all by myself. Some people do this with panache (yes, I implying that I do not) but when I am out I prefer to be with a friend or at least have a magazine to keep me company.

I loved it. I people watched, I took blogey photos with my iPhone (sorry for the quality – it was an unexpected trip) I people watched some more and soaked in the scenery.

The vegetarian menu here is pretty limited but I had an artichoke toastie and it was delicious. 20110521-023048.jpg
I drank water from a jar (as in former jam or Vegemite) and poured it from a big brown bottle. I relished my sandwich and decided it is the perfect place to return when I need a break or want to make some time to blog.

The lovely cafe employee mentioned they have been open about 9 months and let me know that they normally have a hot special on the menu each day and on Fridays something about pulled pork. As a veggie this doesn’t mean much to me but having seen friends in the States almost cry about how good it can be I am thinking it’s an exciting thing.


I guess i will never understand – and the idea of pulled carrots just sounds weird.

To find this place you need to head right down a wide dead end lane and there near the back on the right  you will find it quietly tucked in.
