day 1 melbourne – drinks at rue bebelons …

it’s day 1, post almost- as-good-as-nonna’s-gnocchi, and heading towards mid afternoon.  what is tempting palates to do? unwind and relax with drinks of course.  again, we head off in search of a place that we were told about – a trendy little cafe of sorts.

rue bebelons, 267 little lonsdale street.  it’s tucked away in an alley in such a way that if you didn’t know what you were looking for, you would walk past it.  walk in and you’re glad that you didn’t.

coffee is from 9am; lunch 11 til 4; pizza 4 til late; records day and night.  there is a huge collection of vinyl records behind the bar.  and roses … lots of them.

red is the preferred colour choice for the decor.

two of the girls order espresso martinis – cariel vanilla vodka, coffee liqueur with fresh espresso.

and the rest of us decide to try the pimms cup (to share via a cocktail jug) – it’s a classic punch cocktail.  pimms with strawberry, orange, cucumber, mint & lemonade.

it’s the place for creative souls – a haven for readers, writers and music lovers.  it’s a place that’s cosy.  it’s the perfect place to relax and chat.
