Department Stores Box Hill, VICA brand new business centre and the only one in Melbourne replacing the Lincoln Mills location, it is now closer to the CBD and a lot smaller. Although essentials are still available. At times when there are many people, the centre can be too tight to navigate easily, especially with shopping trollies. Timing visits to the down time is best. Staff are helpful and cheerful.

Newly opened for about 7 months, this authentic little French patisserie cafe is run by a couple who trained as pastry chefs and worked in Australia and abroad with some of the biggest names. Excellent service, friendly, delicious $8 mini baguettes (they are also sold plain big and small). Beautiful croissant, divine hot chocolate. Crepes are served after 2pm. The patisserie is almost always full and a steady stream of customers come and go, cakes and pastries quickly disappeared. They do take orders for functions and birthday cakes. The only drawback was a long wait for food. Or maybe it was just that afternoon. Will definitely be back.
