Mietta's ReviewInside The Green Grocer one is wrapped in series of funky Six Degrees spaces decorated with organic vegetables. If you decide to sit in the little backroom near the fireplace you can reach through the open windows and touch your fellow diners in the adjoining space - an enclosed light well. Service is charming, laid-back and so polite it barely registers a new chum's infringement of the complex house-rules of behaviour. Long famous for its breakfasts it also does fine, determindely healthy, food through the rest of the day coping effortlessly with the offspring of inner-suburban, mature-age parents. These slightly harrassed parents could be single dads (with child), demanding restaurant industry figures or just those who have seen their real estate rocket in value. Prices are what you would expect - mains around $16, big breakfast $14, muesli $7.
