Had lunch with some lovely ladies today at Proud Mary cafe on Oxford St, Collingwood, at the Stanley St end of Oxford Street. Having seen some great write ups and having been in for coffee a few times I was excited to try the nosh. It did not disappoint.
The pumpkin and fetta tart with side rocket salad was delicious and just the right size, as agreed by the pretty Fran – we had the same dish. The menu details some yummy looks corn frittas which my lovely friend Joyce had and crushed avocado that Lisa chowed down on.
Proud Mary was bustling and very busy with a 15 minute wait for a table at noon but worth the wait.
After this I was lucky enough to be escorted on a tour around Smith St, to the Rose St Artists Markets, up Johnston St then to Brunswick St by the absolutely gorgeous Lisa – thank you lady, you have such a beautiful soul and kind heart.
Highly recommend exploring these parts of Melbourne because each street is a hidden gem of shops, cafes, markets, street art, shabby chic terrace houses, cobble stones and apartments begging to be renovated. This really is a special part of Melbourne which I am very fond of. Lisa’s passion for the area has certainly rubbed off on me!
Excited about yum cha and Sydney Road, Brunswick Music Festival tomorrow!
