Food lovers’ guide to Rankins Rd, Kensington, Victoria


The wide tree-lined Rankins Road in Kensington is a perfect spot to base some fun, relaxed food-themed exploring close by.


Blessed by a bundle of friendly and interesting eateries on it’s door step, it also has easy access to the culturally diverse and bountiful Footscray Fresh Food Markets and the never-ending choice close in the city.

Two cute, dog-friendly (outside) cafes sit at the corner of Macauley Road…

Cafe on Rankins…



…and Luncheonette…


open 8:00-3:30pm Saturday and Sunday, 7:30am-3:30pm Tuesday to Friday…


and serving breakfast and lunch.

Duck under the railway line through the walkway and you’ll come to the amazing The Premises on Bel Air Street..

If you need more ideas, hop on the train to the City Circle and head to one of the arcades, like The Block Arcade between Little Collins and Collins Streets and Elizabeth and Swanson Streets. The Block Arcade is home to the Haig Chocolate shop, Hopetoun Tea Rooms and the Gewurzhaus Spice House and the narrow walkway buzzes with diners and coffee drinkers enjoying the outdoor tables.
