Renowned for its inventive all-day menu, May Street Larder is big, bright and boisterous. Packed to the rafters on weekend, and only marginally less during the week, it has a determinedly casual, no frills ambience.

You’re not coming here to look at the room, it’s all about the food. Not to mention excellent coffee and a drinks list to suit most moods. Go healthy with kombucha or cocowhip concoctions.

For those who wish to jump-start the day, we recommend the cucumber and jalapeño margarita or one of the best bloody Mary’s in town.

Try either with crisp snapper tacos for the best hangover cure south of the river. From eggs every which way through to healthy probiotics and poached fruits, decadent sweets to the more wantonly delicious plates, the kitchen doesn’t miss a beat. Its most popular dish remains the soul sandwich, a pair of polenta waffles, stuffed with southern-fried chicken, and splashed with lashings of chilli maple syrup, smashed avo and sour cream.
