HOT: Sebastian’s Food and Wine, 303 Hampton Street, Hampton

Sebastian’s Food and Wine faces the railway crossing at Hampton and is a popular haunt with commuters, families and nearby worker for all day breakfast or lunch. You can choose to hang out at the outdoor pavement tables or step away from the buzz to sit in the leafy courtyard instead. We try the Marrakesh salad ($16) […]

HOT: Urban Projuice, 315 Montague St, Albert Park

Hidden in a gorgeous Victorian terrace house in Albert Park you’ll find a wholefoods vegetarian cafe and juice bar called Urban Projuice. It’s one of my favourite pit stops in Albert Park (and I’m not vegetarian). Sit outside on the shaded front terrace or wind you way to the leafy orchard courtyard. There’s also an upstairs […]

HOT: Dumbo, 11 Argyle St, West Footscray

Dumbo is presumably named after the funky area in Brooklyn (short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) rather than the big-eared elephant, and as such it’s the perfect name for a cafe that is part of the rapid gentrification in West Footscray. The on-trend cafe transforms a building that is notorious for previously housing a clothing […]

HOT: Second Home, 21 Brougham St, Eltham

Second Home in Eltham is an award-winning cafe housed in an Alistair Knox-designed brick industrial building. It’s the latest venture from cafe maestro Jason Jones (The Stables of Como, Friends of Mine, Go West) and well worth a special trip to the leafy ‘burbs. Formerly a factory, workshop and gallery, Second Home has taken the […]

HOT: District North, 678-680 Mt Alexander Road, Moonee Ponds

District North cafe is a new addition to the increasingly interesting dining out scene in Moonee Ponds and Melbourne’s inner north-west. It’s a bright beautiful building in amongst the rather dingy and grey surroundings of Mt Alexander Road, a peacock amongst the pigeons. The Scandi-chic cafe is only 8 weeks old and already has a signature dish […]

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. […]
