Ada Grace

How did I only recently find out about this place???

I’ve been in South Melbourne for the past 4 years and had never even heard of this place!

Ada Grace is a cute little cafe tucked away in one of the side streets in South Melbourne. The place is nice and cosy with an indoor garden on the roof!

I ordered my normal soy mocha. I find this a bit on the bitter side here but still nice none the less. My hubby ordered the green mango smoothie which I loved! You could have this just as a meal. The mango is subtle and the avocado makes the smoothie lovely and creamy.

I ordered the croquettes and hubby ordered the duck salad.

I found the croquettes nice and crunchy. I think they could have had more flavour in it but I liked how it was a nice and light meal.

I tried a bit of the duck salad. This was also nice and light, great for a healthy lunch. The orange segments give the dish some great freshness. I do however think this dish is quite overpriced. For $19.50, there isn’t much duck in the salad.

We’ve been back to this place another once or twice since the first time. It’s always nice to have a local which you know you can get good food and service!

Smith Street Alimentari

Wow! Finally back after a few months…

Smith Street Alimentary… what can I say about this place but amazing! A friend from work had recommended this place and we couldn’t wait to try it! So glad we did too!

I ordered my usual soy mocha and buffalo soldiers and my hubby ordered the green smoothie and bircher.

I can only really comment on what I had since I only had a small spoonful of the bircher. I’m so glad I ordered what I ordered. Everything about the dish was spectacular! The polenta soldiers went so well with the amazing mozzarella and pesto. There was nothing I could fault about the dish.

If I’m ever to go back, I would definitely order this dish again! Superb!
