Somewhere on Queen between Collins and Bourke,
There’s a café where you can escape from your work.
Tucked away in a lobby, 'cross from ANZ bank,
It’s kitsch and its cosy, delicious and bright,
The girls are efficient but always polite.
With a focus on fresh food, organic and tasty,
The Moroccan wrap is a fine choice for lunch,
Or perhaps on the Gruyere croissant you will munch.
Taste the red lentil soup; you’ll enjoy every drop,
We enjoyed it so much I returned two days later,
This time for breakfast, for which they do cater.
Sip Genovese coffee in no need of sweetening,
It came served with strawberries and yoghurt so creamy,
Freshly grated apple and almonds so dreamy,
Big chunks of apricot, raisins and dates,
You can kick-start your weekday or end with a treat,
With breakfast til midday and many a sweet.
Join a communal table and meet someone new,
Dine on fruit bread from Dench and cakes too-good-to-eat,
Lick the quaint china plates until you feel replete.
When you’ve finished your meal, leave a tip do not pause,
Each month extra money goes to a good cause.
They have copper birdcages and powder blue stools,
‘Serene in the city,’ it breaks all the rules.
With tea cups as lights and flowers abundant,
Take a time out and watch the world go by,
Catch up on the papers, as time’s sure to fly.
Keep an eye on your watch and don’t get too slack,
