Cafés and Restaurants:

There are 3 Cafés on the front side of the TCI Building within walking distance, as well as the pub.

Sushi Lane and Eat Worx  - 60 Albert Road, South Melbourne

These two yummy food dispensaries are right across from us.  If you are a sushi fan, try Sushi Lane, while Eat Worx does an pretty cool assortment of salads fresh salads and rolls as well as pastries and coffees, this, in my opinion is the place to go for during the week.  These places are closed over the weekend.  But they do, do catering.  Something to think about for the Moon Bear Café.

Mish Café – 70 Albert Road, South Melbourne

This is the next Café down the road, towards Kings Way.  This one is not so great in my opinion but is a little bit cheaper.  Also only open during the week. 

Efresca – Opposite Corner to us, across Kings Way

This little Coffee Place seems to have good coffee and lunch specials.  Open only during the week.

The Palmerston Hotel – 51 Palmerston Crescent

Up Kings way just a bit is the Palmerston Hotel, rumoured to do the best Parma in Melbourne, I have to say its pretty good.  It’s a very pubby atmosphere, perhaps the new local?

Behind us are several eating places as well as a couple of Centres:

Bowen’s Deli

Right behind us is a tiny alleyway, and on this alleyway is the back entrance to a little centre.  This houses the Bowen Deli.  It’s a very small deli, but may be good for a quick coffee

St Kilda Towers

There are several place inside St. Kilda Towes for you to get food.  There is Asian, Thai, Sushi, Soup, Smoothies, as well as a convenience Store.  So you can pretty much have your pick.  Next door is a restaurant called Squires Loft

Venturing further abroad:

If you cross right over to the other side of St. Kilda Road and walk away form the City.  There are lots of different eating options.  I will list them here:
