Lil Lane, Melbourne CBD

MELBOURNE | Lil Lane is a new focaccia spot that recently opened in the CBD which I popped into in to grab some shots for What’s On Melbourne. It’s a place that you need to know about to find, tucked away at the end of narrow Corrs Lane.

Most of the trade happens from the service window that faces out to the laneway, and there’s benches if you want to sit and enjoy your focaccia in the laneway. There’s also some indoor seating at what’s also the entrance to nightclubs ‘House of Maximon’, and ‘Pulp’, along with stalwart of Melbourne’s bar scene, Berlin Bar.

Co-owner Giulia Dal Corso hails from Venice, Italy, and has experience working in bars in Melbourne and Venice. At Lil Lane, Giulia ensures that the focaccia and fillings are made to the highest standards, be it the traditional, or contemporary options.

Thick, airy, focaccia Genovese is baked daily, and all of the condiments and sauces are made from scratch using the best quality local (where possible) and Italian ingredients. Cheese comes from That’s Amore, and the end result is delicious.

The two most popular options are the classic ‘Focacaia Mortazza’, filled with Stracciatella, pesto, mortadella, and crushed pistachios; and ‘La Veneta’. The latter, which contains a filling of Sopressa, Stracciatella, mushroom sauce, and confit garlic, is particularly good.

If you’re thirsty, it’s quality espresso-based coffees, hot chocolate, and chai, along with speciality lattes. Flavours like tiramisu Kinder Bueno, and pistachio white chocolate. There’s also Italian sodas from Cortese, and a small wine, beer, and cocktail list.
