Roule Galette @ Melbourne CBD

Although we are a 20 minute tram ride away to the CBD, we seldom find ourselves in the city on the weekends. Why? we rather drive since the poor black car sits in the garage on most weekdays and coupled by exorbitant CBD car park rates. 


We needed to go to the CBD one weekend and after some research, we realised CBD car park rates is not as bad as I thought it would be. For those who want to know where to get relatively cheap parking, the indoor car park on LaTrobe Street is 5 bucks all day long on weekends (that's less than the price of 2 adult tram tickets). 


Now since we were in the CBD, it meant that even though dinner was an hour away, we had to try something uniquely CBD. One of the places that I have been wanting to visit is Roule Galette. Located in one of the smaller lanes in Melbourne, this places oozes "French". From the french accent, music, crepes and cider, the Wife said it feels a little like sitting in a small cafe in Paris.

Because dinner was an hour away, we shared a crepe with a generous serving of chestnut puree and a glass of cider. 

The crepe was awesome and coupled with the cider; excellent.

Fancy experiencing a little French without having to fly to Paris? Try detouring into Roule Galette for a crepe.

Verdict: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. Will definitely come back to try a few more crepes.
