Discover Acland Street's hidden gems
In April we're exploring Acland Street to discover some more hidden gems.
"St Kilda is a destination,” says Nick from Europa Cake Shop on Acland Street.
“During COVID, the locals, they came and bought a cake from me one day, then went to the next cake shop the next day, etc, etc. They supported the street. It's been fantastic. It's a community. Have a look around, look at the diversity. I mean you've got iconic cake shops, there's four of us in the street. You've got a supermarket, you've got fashion, you've got restaurants of any type of food that you want, and you've got the beach across the road.”
