The Hidden Arcades of Lane Cove – Lane Cove Arcade

Welcome to another instalment of the Hidden Arcades of Lane Cove. Today we are exploring Lane Cove Arcade.

Lane Cove Arcade is situated at 115- 19 Longueville Road, Lane Cove. If you’re on Longueville Road, the two shops at the arcade entrance are Eyes on Lane Cove and Four Frogs Creperie.  If you are at the back entrance, two shops located at this entrance are Laminat8 Patiserrie, an empty space (rumoured to be a Vietnamese restaurant) and Masterpiece Alteration and Designs.

Eyes on Lane Cove

Jason is well known in Lane Cove for his service standards and his ability to repair dropped and broken glasses urgently. ITC can tell you from experience that they do very comprehensive eye tests.

Four Frogs Creperie

Four Frogs Crêperie joined the Lane Cove community in May 2018, bringing authentic crêpes and galettes to our neighbourhood.

Founded by four friends, Four Frogs Crêperie offers a relaxed dining experience with a huge selection of sweet & savoury crêpes, along with traditional French cider and a selection of French champagne, wines, premium spirits and beers.

They brought their traditional recipes over from France, and mill their Buckwheat flour in the store. This maximises the taste, freshness and nutritional content of the buckwheat, and it’s naturally gluten-free.

They also have vegetarian options and a kids menu with entertainment.

You even get a free crepe on your birthday – details here.

Cutting at the Cove

Drop-in and see Giuseppe, Roy and Nino – they are always up for a laugh while you get your hair cut.  This is the place where kids get their hair cut. It is usually bustling after school and the day before school starts back.

Bec and Bel – Designer Consignment Store

Late last year, Australian Vogue declared the future of fashion is circular.  Consumers all around the world are shifting from a possession culture to a usage culture.  Now Lane Cove locals can get involved in the fashion circular economy by buying and selling pre-loved or unworn designer clothes and accessories.

Two local mums, who are passionate about fashion and sustainability, have opened Lane Cove’s first designer consignment store called Bec and Bel.

Their store is one of only a few designer consignment stores located on the North Shore.

Bec and Bel curate luxury and high-end fashion including clothing, shoes, designer handbags and accessories.  Their stock includes “pre-loved” fashion as well as brand new, unworn items.

Bec and Bel offer a full range of designer brands including international brands such as Gucci, Dior, Chanel, Jimmy Choo and Prada to local outfitters such as Zimmerman, Camilla Franks and more.  Read more here.

Lane Cove Shoe Repairs

This shop repairs shoes, cuts keys, sharpens knives and has all you need to waterproof shoes. If you want to fight with a tired toddler, take them past this shop at around nap time. They will insist on a ride on the helicopter toy, and they know it is meant to move.
