This little number is a bit hidden in Como suburbia, and totally worth the trip. First and foremost a health food store (the cool kind), Loose Produce specialises in specialties. Organic, eco-friendly, gluten-free, fair-trade… you name it. Browse the aisles and get inspired to create your own muesli blend or snack mix.

But it’s their little café that’s the pleasant surprise. Awesome coffee is always a given, and the sweet morsels are the best kind of temptations – salted caramel slice, anyone? If you’re more of a savoury nut there is always gourmet frittatas on hand (we are partial to the caramelised onion and pine nut tart with chutney). Kate R
