We are Hare Krishna Food For Life’s shopfront in the Central Business District.

Since we opened in 1983 (over thirty-five years ago now), we have offered a taste of the spiritual to people from all walks of life. Whoever you are, you can enjoy our low-cost, all-you-can-eat, vegetarian and vegan meals: twice a day, six days a week.

Generations of tertiary students have relied on Crossways’ meals to fuel their studies: we hope you’ll call in, whether you’ve returned to on-campus classes or are still studying from home.

If you’re a pensioner or a concession cardholder, just show your card to receive a discount. You can relax at Crossways.

If you’ve fallen out of the welfare safety net, you can find a place here. See you soon!
