Find Camberwell’s new sweet spot this weekend

The Candy Place pop-up at the new look Camberwell Place brings the promise of complimentary sweet treats for you, and you, and me.

Dubbed ‘Candy Place’, the space has been designed as a sweet wonderland, with kids (and kidults) allowed to choose from an array of bespoke desserts found on shelves high and low in the custom pop-up (perhaps take your own step ladder for best results).

Stage two of the development will be completed later in 2019, and will introduce a new laneway dining area to the access lane from Burke Road.

“Having grown up in the area since I was young, it was always hard to find an intimate yet informal space that provided great dining and service,” says Sean Cheshire of St Giles Wine Bar, “Since the dry area laws have changed, St Giles can now provide residents of Camberwell a bar and dining option they historically had to travel to the CBD, Richmond or St Kilda for.”

To claim your treat, front up to Candy Place with a receipt for $15 or more from any Camberwell Place retailer.

The ‘Candy Place’ pop-up launches the new-look Camberwell Place (formerly The Well) on 19 and 20 January, 10am – 3pm. For more info, click here, or visit the Camberwell Place Facebook Page.
