Jungle Juice, Melbourne
Cramped and quirky is the new black. Or the new cool. Or something like that. And it doesn't get more cramped and quirky than Jungle Juice, in Melbourne's uber-lane, Centre Place, Tel +61 3 9639 8779. The menus are glued to the inside of recycled Little Golden books, and the food simple and tasty. I was very happy with my poached eggs and bacon with jungle juice (swirls of mayo). But the toasted bagels were almost impossible to cut. You really need an electric knife, or a jack-hammer, or a machete, to hack through the crusts.
