Laneway Greens’ Wholefood @Homebox is green, lean and decently priced, coming out at around $10 a meal. Each box contains seven meals for either two or four people – think smoked Angus beef brisket with broth, rice and steamed greens; salmon with spiced tomato sauce; and falafel with roast veg. Chicken is free-range, the Tassie salmon is sustainably caught and vegetables come from local farmers and suppliers. Delivery only.
Twin brothers Luke and Adrian Cala are new to hospitality, but you wouldn’t know it. Their venue, Laneway Greens, re-imagines the traditional salad bar in a slick, modern setting that speaks of their backgrounds in design and marketing.
It serves salads, smoothies and pressed juices – nutrient-rich food that’s packed with flavour. The six salad options change twice a year. They’re always driven by thoughtful flavour pairings.
Crowd favourites include the miso-glazed salmon with pickled cucumber and ponzu dressing; and sweet potato with coleslaw, tzatziki and puffed amaranth. Be prepared to eat standing up during the lunch rush, or opt for takeaway.
Custom-made Shiko pottery complements the contemporary fit-out by Travis Walton Architecture, with backlit Perspex benchtops and floor-to-ceiling powder-coated screens dividing front-of-house from the kitchen.
An impressive point-of-sale counter encased in solid American Walnut shingles is a hard-to-miss feature piece.
