1 Smith Street
3066 Melbourne, Australia
Locals say that Smith Street is around 15 years behind nearby Brunswick St and that's exactly how they like it. Known for discount warehouse stores, backpacker apparel and vintage clothes, in recent time a new wave of quality restaurants have entered the fray, joining the old-school eateries that have seemed to be for ever. Highlights include Josie Bones and their incredible beer list, Easy Tiger and their new take on Asian cuisine and Robert Burns Hotel with their highly regarded Spanish cuisine. For those that want something a little sweeter, Monsieur Truffe is arguably the city's best chocolate store and also make a heavenly hot chocolate.
