Sporting a rustic-chic, backyard-garden aesthetic is French Fold, a charming new concept by the founders of Merci Marcel. Enjoy their modern interpretation of the French crepes (from $7) and galettes (from $8) while relaxing in one of their three themed areas: Lounge, Cafe Chic and Garden Patio.

Galettes might be unfamiliar to some, and if you haven’t heard of it, it’s a traditional French pancake, made with buckwheat flour. Here, they’re folded in on the sides to form a squarish pocket, filled with savoury ingredients. Try No.3 ($15) for chiffonade ham, sauteed mushroom, comte cheese and organic sunny side up encased in a toasty brown galette.

13. Syohachi Wagyu Hamburg – affordable A5 Wagyu sandwiches

Come by to sink your teeth into the $7.70 Syohachi Japanese A5 Wagyu Beef Toastie, served between two crisp slices of toast.

Top up another $3 for a set that comes with tater tots, salads and pickles.
