Don’t let the cold of winter get you down. Lift your mood with a little retail therapy at MLC Centre.

For summer-lovers, the middle of the year has its downsides – the days are short, the weather is icy, and the prospect of sunshine feels like a distant memory. But don’t let the lull get you down. There are plenty of ways to lift the spirits and MLC Centre’s retailers are here to help.

Take the crêpe
The offerings at Bonjour Crêpes are bound to make any Francophile food-lover all warm and fuzzy inside. Go sweet with the likes of salted caramel with almonds and vanilla ice-cream, or savoury with bacon, potatoes, caramelised onion and stringy melted cheese.
