    Did U Know Lentils has 2 other great locations? 41 Blessington St, St Kilda (Not far from beach/Cafe style) & 231 Barkley St Footscray. You haven't experienced lentils till you've been to each one! (:

    Drinking a chai latte for the first time, still no clue really what it is, but it tastes lovely. A very good way of variety instead of taking a coffee! Reminds me of christmas! Top👍

    Be Super kind to the staff.. Chances are they have just rolled up their sleeves to help out as a volunteer. Lentils is like a great family. If understaffed offer to v/teer by talking to duty manager

    Beautiful place, almost a Melbourne Institution (well for students anyway). Enjoy the atmosphere, have a good feed, get a Chai, perhaps a walk around the gardens.... Plenty of Gluten Free options too
