Zuroona Cafe & Bar, Melbourne CBD by Snooze

Sometimes a place has atmosphere and decor and food ood ... but sometimes it just doesn't come to together. At Zuroona it's all about the building. It's a spectacular example of the Gothic style applied to Federation-era commercial buildings. It has a heavily moulded fa├žade of beige freestone on a brick and concrete structure.

And the interior is renovated beautifully. The ceiling is ornamented and consists of a plaster beam and panel system on ornamental columns, and elaborate candelabra.


But the food ... plain, bain marie, cafeteria food. Big Fil's went with the lasagne and bean salad. Hearty, filling and enjoyable.


Mine was the cannelloni and salad ... and unlike many the cannelloni had no dry spots where the cooking had dried out pasta not covered by sauce


Overall
Zuroona was a little schizophrenic ... a fancier bar together with bain marie hot food and wraps. Stil nice though with comfortable sofas, and well worth a visit to admire the building and interior.

Verdict
Ambience - 7
Service - 6
Food - 5.5
Price - 7
