Tea Time in Style at Venus Sophia Tearoom & Eatery

Food | Part and Parcel

Moroccan Spiced Fries. Morrocan. Spiced. Fries. YES! Among other delicious, inconspicuous foods these are the holy grail of what Part & Parcel has to offer. According to my Mum and I that is. Part & Parcel in Victoria offers handcrafted cooking, with new dishes being offered daily, local ingredients and counter service it has quickly become one of my favourite places to eat in the city.
