Firmin - Depends which end of town she is staying and if she is eating alone. If eating alone then The MOAT at the Wheeler centre is good. Friendly, cosy, has books and newspapers available and many people eat alone. In addition you can often catch something at the Wheeler centre to stimulate the mind. It has the added attraction of no doof doof music and the likely hood that most people there have read at least one book. Not something you can say about every place. http://www.broadsheet.com.au/melbourne/food-and-drink/article/moat-wheelers-centre http://wheelercentre.com/ I wouldn't respond to FOX's stalking offer. He probably thinks sitting on a milk crate in a Thornbury laneway, in second hand brogue longwings with no socks a big long scarf and Buddy Holly glasses, eating anchovies out of the tin (latest trend) is fine dining.
