HOT: Patch Cafe, Studio 9, 2 Bendigo Street, Richmond

Patch Cafe in Richmond is a newish operation that serves a paleo-inspired, clean eating menu. Before you pooh-pooh the idea their food managed to entice someone like me, who is definitely not grain-free, sugar-free and fat-free.  I was invited to try out their menu and took myself off to the old Channel Nine building in Richmond.

HOT: Square and Compass, 222 Clarendon St, East Melbourne

Square and Compass in East Melbourne was recently crowned as one of Melbourne’s best new cafes and it’s the combined work of owners with links to Pillar of Salt, Touchwood and Barry.

I just love it when old milk bars are transformed into community spaces of a different kind – a welcoming local cafe.

HOT: Giddyup Mule, 177 Stephen St, Yarraville

Giddyup Mule takes over the space that used to be a more simple […]

HOT: Saluministi, 8 Atkins St, North Melbourne

Saluminsti is an Italian-style warehouse cafe in North Melbourne, hidden at the intersection of two cobblestone laneways. Saluminsti is a labour of love for Frank, one of the co-owners, despite being a pop up for only 12 months (at this stage) as it sits at the back of the building that’s slated to be turned […]
