The Archway: A community of Melbourne's best food and flavour makers

A new laneway of food and flavour has arrived in Melbourne, tucked away in Katherine Place, just off Flinders Lane. The businesses here are passionate about their craft and dedicated to delivering an experience worth sharing. We take a look inside The Archway to discover what makes this community so special.

First, we stop in at Delhi Streets, who are bringing Indian food back to the streets. They’re used the traditional flavours of their hometown to offer a deliciously different (yet authentic) dining experience for all budgets.

The unpretentious, Altius, serves up coffee how you like it, without judgement. It’s a laid-back atmosphere, run by former Market Lane-rs, Hannah Alderton and Jarrod Pageot.
Hand-rolled, boiled and baked. That’s the secret of 5 & Dime Bagels. They combine local ingredients with the New York City flair of Jersey boy, Zev Forman.

The signature dumplings and Taiwanese tapas at Mr Huang Jin are eye catching and deceptively filling. You’ve been warned – so you can save room for dessert.
T by LuxBite’s ever-changing (and substantial selection) of tarts and macarons combine an Asian influence with French technique. We have no doubt, you’ll be leaving with more than one of their decadent treats.
Last stop is juice bar and wholefoods cafe, Hunters’ Roots, who offer healthy, speedy and tasty alternatives to your regular go-to lunch choices.
