Opening Hours:
Tue to Sat 8am–7pm


Smith & Deli is an all vegan, New York style deli bought to life by our friends from Smith & Daughters. This is the place to stop by for bread, pastries, coffee, cheeses, meats (all vegan remember!), salads, soups, pies, meals to go and an incredible array of over 25 sandwiches.

Sandwiches are king at Smith & Deli and the menu may stun you with the sheer amount of options of available, so check it out before you go. The 'Rubenstein' ($15) is a good pick with pastrami, sauerkraut, pickles and Russian dressing on rye; or go for a 'Buffalo the Vampire Slayer' ($12) with buffalo tofu, ranch, shredded iceberg, carrot, onion and celery in a roll. Next time I think I'll channel Kevin and try the 'Home Alone' ($15) made up of turkey, roasted brussel sprouts, cranberry sauce, mashed potato & gravy, all on a roll. Gluten free bread is available for all sandwiches for an extra $2.

Some lighter options that are more in the breakfast camp are also on offer, including a variety of grilled cheese sandwiches ($8-$12), croissants, and chef Shannon Martinez's take on a popular fast food breakfast item with the 'Egg McMartinez' ($7) including egg, bacon and cheddar on an English muffin with your choice of sauce.

Meals to go, such as pizza ('pepperoni' $16), lasagne, pies (four different flavours everyday, in both single and family sizes), sausages, schnitzels, tofu and tempeh are all available.

The cabinets are full of sweet treats too, where (with options rotating daily) you might find 'Maple Bacon Donuts' ($5), 'Vanilla Slice ($6), 'Apple Pie Bars' ($5), 'Lemon Tarts' ($7) and much more.

Black coffee is $3.50 or $4 with non-dairy milk – or add an extra $2 for Smith & Deli's own fresh nut milk. The chai soy latte sweetened with agave nectar ($4) is great.

As their slogan goes: Thank you for being a friend, Smith & Deli!

Fatto a Mano
228 Gertrude Street
Fitzroy VIC 3065
Phone: 03 9417 5998


Tue-Fri: 6am - 6pm
Sat: 6am - 3pm


I usually only make it to organic bakery Fatto a Mano on a Saturday morning when I'm booked in for an overpriced haircut nearby. Without the lure of this vegan and gluten free friendly institution I may have stopped going to said hairdresser years ago!

There's always an abundance of vegan pizza slices in the window display of Fatto a Mano that draws me in every time. I can never go past a slice of their potato and olive pizza ($4) or the spelt pizza slice which is loaded with a rainbow of roasted pumpkin, eggplant, zucchini, capsicum and olives ($4). There are usually vegan muffins ($4) on offer and on this occasion we scored a banana and plum version which was a delight. It's the amazing vegan crostata (a rustic fruit tart) however, that really takes the cake (pun intended!) - with chunky peaches and crispy, sugared pastry - it's a standout from the usual vegan treats about town.

There are other vegan offerings often available too, such as the vegetable calzone and the vegetable pie (GF), as well as some cookies and brownies. It's a real case of first in, best dressed at Fatto a Mano, with goodies often selling out quickly at this popular little bakery. Not to be overlooked are the organic sourdough breads and the odd gluten free bread, which are vegan too and definitely don't disappoint.

Crumbs Organic Bakehouse
16 Errol Street,
North Melbourne VIC 3051


Mon-Fri: 6.30am-6pm
Sat: 8.30am-3pm

Cash Only. 

Takeaway (limited bench seating inside)


I've worked in North Melbourne for quite a few years now, and I can honestly say that my work life has never being better since Crumbs Organic Bakehouse opened up in Errol Street earlier this year.

Crumbs has become my daily takeaway coffee haunt since it opened. Not only because the coffee (with Bonsoy) is excellent and the people there are lovely, but the bakehouse is also pretty much all vegan! All of the bread is vegan and all of the cakes, biscuits, sourdough donuts, sourdough pizza slices, pastries and croissants are ALL VEGAN!

The almond croissants and lemon curd sourdough donuts are a particular favourite of mine and the tomato, mushroom and olive pizza is also my pick of the bunch for a lunchtime fix.

Thank you for making life so good Crumbs!

Price: Reasonable. $5.50 for most bread. $3.50 for muffins. $4.40 for large soy latte.
