Lime Melbourne Operations Manager, Lara Nickless, presents Super Norma with their Lime Local Business award

Melbourne, 23 April, 2024: Lime has announced the winners of their inaugural Lime Local Business Awards in Melbourne this week. The Lime Local Business Award recognises small businesses that have significantly impacted their local community, as voted by Lime’s riders. 

Lime asked their entire rider database across the City to nominate their favourite local business and 30 were shortlisted from over 1,000 nominations. From this shortlist, Lime selected five local businesses to receive this Award.

Each winning business received:

  • $2,000 grant money for the business to spend at their discretion
  • Free Lime rides for 12 months for all staff members
  • 10 minutes of free riding per customer for a month


The five winners were:


Super Norma

Super Norma isn't just a restaurant; it's the result of a conversation-turned-experiment between friends Marco and Luca outside a sandwich shop. What if Southern Italian cuisine could be as easy and portable as a panino? With Marco's dream of a pasta bar and Luca’s enthusiasm, they turned that idea into reality.

The Heart of Carlton

Michael and Nadeen Kelly are a husband and wife team who have lived in Carlton for 16 years.

The Heart of Carlton is a warm meeting place for people of all generations to come together and mingle, laugh and enjoy a healthy bite to eat.


Trinity St Kilda

As an iconic century-old landmark, Trinity St Kilda venue exudes warmth and inclusivity, inviting all to experience its charm. This venue offers a versatile setting with a spacious beer garden, inviting beer hall, and four distinct event spaces.


Chop Shop

Chop Shop is like a barbershop - but for everyone. It’s not a lads pad or a fancy salon; it’s just a place to get your hair cut. The team have been making the inner north sexy since March 2021, and are still welcoming new friendly faces through the doors everyday.

A Thousand Blessings

Since opening its doors in 2009, A Thousand Blessings Cafe has become more than just a cafe; it's a sanctuary for those who cherish community and quality. Anchored in a deep commitment to using only the finest organic and locally sourced produce, their evolution has been guided by a steadfast dedication to nourishing the community they are a part of.
