If you haven’t heard, green is the new black. From solar panels to worm farms, more and more Melbourne eateries are getting on board the eco-train. This means sustainable smashed avo and conscious cocktails for all. Here are 4 of the best spots to eat, guilt-free.
252 Swanston St, Melbourne CBD
Tacos, tequila, tostadas and…worms? Mesa Verde turns waste into compost with their rooftop worm garden, which they then use to harvest veggies. Don’t be grossed out, the food is still absolutely delish.
South of Johnston
46 Oxford St, Collingwood
Who knew eating ricotta on toast could save energy. This rustic warehouse café uses solar panels to generate 60% of its electricity. It’s also got a mini orchard out front and an all-day breakky menu. We are sold.
74 Glen Eira Road, Elsternwick
Fine-dining goes green at Attica. With sustainable seafood, ethically sourced meats and house grown produce, you can indulge yourself and the planet.
Level 1, Transport Hotel, Federation Square CBD
There’s nothing unethical about this Fed Square favourite. Taxi Kitchen’s menu is strictly free-range and all veggies are handpicked from the rooftop community garden. The 360 view of the city isn’t hard on the eyes either.
