Time Out Melbourne

Photos: Sean Fennessy

Relaxed, casual and the perfect place to waste a Saturday, Tyranny of Distance is like having a long lunch in your backyard. With the Windsor end of Chapel Street littered with little gems (like The Astor Theatre) this café stands out for its laid back atmosphere (very dog-friendly) and unpretentious staff who are happy to be there serving you and keep the drinks flowing. The tapas menu has a tasty variety of dishes and always a great choice if you’re sharing. There is nothing better than sitting back with your cider chewing the fat about loves recent and lost, music gone but not forgotten and clogs in winter - fashion go or fashion no?
