If you're in the mood for something French and flavoursome for lunch, head to Waffle On at the Flinders Street end of Degraves Street.
This roughly three-by-three alcove is enough to make you want to travel to France, providing little knick-knacks from owner and chef Marc Laucher's travels - postcards, international currency, children's drawings, posters of French soccer teams, très chic music and a blackboard full of baguettes à la Français.
The baguette is to die for. It's not what you get at your average bakery when you ask for a baguette and receive a fat-looking bread stick lacking in flavour. Instead, the thin baguette is crisp and ever so tasty - with five varieties to choose from.
The display cabinet showcases gourmet delicacies that fill each of the five baguette varieties: le Parisien; le Lyonette; le Normand; le Fermier and le Niçois - French salami, French pickles, a wheel of Brie, Emmental or Gruyère cheeses, not to mention fresh home-made roast chicken that Marc slices on the spot as you wait.
Treat yourself to a mouth-watering waffle with your choice of delicious toppings: jam, cream, nutella, hot chocolate, ice cream, maple syrup, banana and strawberries, and the best coffee in Melbourne.
Whether you have five minutes to gobble down your lunch or 30 minutes to sit back and relax with a newspaper to the sounds of chic French music, Waffle On is a blink-and-you'll-miss-it taste of France in Melbourne's European-feel laneway.
