The Enchanted Canteen
Pheno runs a canteen that stocks cold drinks (water, sports drinks, coke, soft drinks, energy drinks) sealed snacks (chips, nuts, knuckle sandwiches) and sweets (chocolate, snakes etc) as well as the usual assortment of hot drinks (coffee, tea, hot chocolate)—ask about our discount for anecdotes!
If epic munchiness ensues, Dickson shops are only 10 minutes walk or 5 minutes drive (plus finding a park for your ride) from Pheno. Dickson shops include a Woolies, Maccas, KFC, Ali Baba's, several takeaways, a couple of cafes (with internet access) and more Chinese and Asian restaurants than you can shake a stick at (my arm got tired after five). Dickson shops also includes autotellers, a chemist, a news agent, and service stations.
