Gills Diner (here's a review from hip website and sometimes actual broadsheet Broadsheet), is tucked away in one of Melbourne's much-lauded laneways. The multi-level cafe/bakery/bistro was pretty busy the day The Beaufort 8 Group and I visited. It appears to have had a fairly minimal fit-out to transform the former warehouse into the sleek, minimally industrial space that it now is. I especially loved the tiles and steel-framed windows that created more spaces within the large, high-ceilinged space. The food was lovely (look at my nicoise salad's perfectly soft-boiled egg!), well priced and the service was excellent.
