King William, Melbourne CBD

MELBOURNE | Owners Jane and Lyn opened King William as a lockdown side hustle at the end of 2020, to help keep things ticking over while their catering business experienced a lockdown related downturn. With people retuning to the CBD’s offices, the catering side of things is picking up again, and since the sandwich window has proven popular with locals, they’re going to keep it going.

Flavours and fillings are inspired by Jane and Lyn’s childhood, and the things they love to eat, rather than any trends. The ‘Bolly Days’ toastie, features a crispy parmigiana crust on the bread’s exterior, culled with oozing fior di latte and beef bolognese. Another crowd favourite is the ‘Brigadier’. This one’s a soft round roll filled with free range roast chicken, crispy chicken skin, traybake stuffing, zucchini slaw, and gravy.

As well as sandwiches, there’s a few drinks on offer. Flavoured mineral water, and house made sodas like raspberry and red vinegar, cucumber and lime, and pineapple, ginger, and lemongrass. If you’re in the mood for something boozy, you can add a shot of gin, vodka, or Aperol to any of the soda.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
