For a narrow brick laneway, smack bang in the middle of Melbourne's CBD, Rankins Lane sure does manage to feel breezy and welcoming. From the lush, green window boxes outside Manchester Press cafe to the balcony flowerpots and lemon trees poking through the wire fencing, there's plenty to make a visitor feel at home. Wander down the end of the laneway, past local hipsters and art-school kids, in search of that perfect Melbourne coffee or settle in for a cruisy lunch. Pop into the clean white interiors of Bassike for men and women's fashion, beautiful trinkets and design-store goodness.
