Oh, Footscray... You never fail to surprise and delight.
Sweet Grass is a true urban oasis, hidden in plain sight on Barkly Street.
Inside, lean back in a wicker chair and let the ambient music wash over you.
Once you've stopped shaking your head in disbelief, you can order a mocktail, espresso or Vietnamese coffee or one of the interesting teas on offer, like green tea with roasted rice.
There's no earthly food here but plenty of spiritual nourishment...
...even if that means doing nothing for half an hour, except breathing.
"As a man in his last breath
drops all he is carrying
each breath is a little death
that can set us free".
