How to tackle this part of ‘the fringe’? Fuel up with a flat white and spend a morning perusing its eclectic collection of boutique clothing, book and furniture stores before stopping for a bite to eat and perhaps indulging in a little tipple at a hidden gin gem.
East City Eatery, 79 Roeland St
Begin by grabbing a häzz flat white from East City Eatery and pair it with a breakfast wrap while you catch up on your emails on their free Wi-Fi or surreptitious people watching over one of their interesting zines. This little hole in the wall spot does all-day brekkies and some delicious cold-pressed juices, but is only open during weekdays, so you’ll have to settle for Vida E if you head out on a weekend.
