Once the beating heart of many suburban streets, the humble corner store has, unfortunately, all but disappeared. However, opened in 1956 and hidden away in the backstreets of Richmond, the Rowena Parade Corner Store is, without a doubt, one of Melbourne's better-kept secrets. Standing up for the old guard of Richmond's food scene, the Rowena Parade Corner Store presents customers with delicious brekkie and lunch options, like deluxe BLTs with egg, avo, cheese and the like, while they've also been making 'outta this world' milkshakes for more than 60 years. With experimental flavour combinations, such as vegemite and lamington, it's no wonder these guys have a steady stream of both Richmond locals and anyone else who knows about it.
