North Fitzroy’s local zen den: Carolina Cafe

Like Game of Thrones and Sriracha sauce, spring is obscenely overrated. Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? No thanks. Fuzzy socks, mulled wine, and more jumpers than my body can handle, please.

Food Cuddles. It’s a thing.

Let’s face it. Human beings are largely inadequate at being there for us when we need support. But don’t despair, comfort can be found in the arms of a companion that has never left your side – quite literally. FOOD. Food supports us in the basic act of living, but it can be far more…
