LAFAYETTE FINE FOODS
Melbourne, VIC

Lafayette Fine Foods is about takeaway of the best kind, serving the food you'd cook yourself if you had time. Located in Brighton, the store is more David Jones food hall than local chicken shop. Nicely packaged and ready to devour are soups, casseroles, roasts and tarts. They also have a range of biscuits and preserves. Lafayette Fine Foods offers a few restaurant tables to sit at, but most customers choose to take their treats home.

DETAILS
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
This smart little store with its elegant wallpaper and attractive displays is really a modern takeaway, providing the kind of food you'd cook yourself if you had the time. Tuscan-style bean and tomato soup, braised lamb shanks and gnocchi, for instance, are packed and ready to go from the stacked refrigerated display cabinet.
There are relishes and jams which would make a great gift for someone, even yourself. In addition there are salads and vegetables in another display cabinet; just pick some salads, risotto or roast vegetables.

What distinguishes this from other smart takeaways is that there are a couple of tables and a bench, so that those feeling peckish can nibble on the muffin of the day or enjoy one of the pretty pastries. The New York cheesecake is probably too big to manage in one go so take it home, and grab some of the sandwiches and baguettes while you're at it. The teas are excellent and so is the fair trade coffee, which is available in packs to buy. It's a mark of the smartness of the place that the magazines on the bench are up-to-date and very classy (Vanity Fair and so on). A three-course take-away meal for two will average around $40.
