It's always a dilemma, you're in a hurry, but your tummy grumbles are drowning out the passing traffic, plus you don't want to gobble down something that's going to haunt you later.

When I was recently in this situation on Burgundy Street, Heidelberg it was tricky. Lots of restaurants but not what I needed in my time poor situation, then I noticed Green Orange Café.

It was half way down Burgundy Street and its simple clean shop front was attractive with its green and orange theme. When I took a closer look inside, the bright lighting and clean tables looked decent and being on my own wasn't going to be problem as there was space and everyone was enjoying their own meals. It definitely caters for the lunching office worker.

After passing my first test I headed over to the counter and the selections available. I was seeking that in between type of food, not a snack, not a meal just something to see me through the next few hours.

Faced with a variety of lunch choices from avocado and salmon wraps, focaccia with fillings including roast vegetables, pesto chicken or staples like the good old ham and cheese toastie, I settled on a spinach and ricotta pastry triangle. It was a risk, they are temperamental, the pastry can be stale and they also involve heating to the correct temperate so there's no cold-in-the-middle surprise or burn your mouth off hot.

I'm happy to say it was just right. I swilled it all down with a soy latte and was pleased not to be over changed just because I drink soy which seems to be a common theme with some cafes.

I was in and out in 10 minutes with a full tum and happy heart.
