That top bloke Al Fresco has enlarged his Yarraville options with the opening recently of a triangular outdoor space by Alfa Bakehouse.
The area – featuring more than half a dozen tables of various kinds – is adjacent to the outdoor dining area of Wee Jeanie.
The Wee Jeanie staff tell me their communal dining space incurs no council fee as its on their property.
Alfa Bakehouse presumably has paid the going rate for their much larger area.
And, again presumably, any Wee Jeanie customers having the temerity to attempt to enjoy their repasts at the bakehouse facilities would be greeted with a degree frostiness at best and a request to remove themselves at worst.
Still, it all looks rather lovely, doesn’t it, what with the trees and all?
Even if – as with the Ballarat St closure – the grass is fake!
