With Naïm in Paddington serving up the Middle Eastern goods to their dedicated fans, it was only a matter of time before the good people of West End said "no more" and demanded a store too. Well, West Enders, Naïm heard you. And now you too can get the same glorious baked goods, Single O coffee, and all the lunch fare you could ever hope for at their second eatery in the new Melbourne Street precinct.
The salads are all vegetarian, and if you're gluten intolerant or vegan you'll find plenty of things you can actually eat as well. The food offerings are ever-changing with seasonal availability, but recent rotations have included the grilled bean and asparagus salad with toasted almonds, parmesan and lemon. Pair that with a roast vegetable quiche to smash your five-a-day, or perhaps a salad of beetroot rice, thyme, kale and red cabbage. Stop in and grab breakfast or lunch on the go, or stay awhile and enjoy the beautiful Middle Eastern-styled interior. Sweet tooth? A lemon tart with thyme ticks all the boxes.
