A quaint restaurant set up like a dining car in an enclosed garden. The food was quick and tasty. I had the chicken quesadilla which was very good.

Trunk put on an excellent Thanksgiving Dinner, served family style at long tables. The caramelized sweet potatoes and pecan pie were particularly noteworthy. A special dish was provided for the vegetarian in our group. This has become (hopefully) an annual event at Trunk.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
