HOT: Sweet Evelyn, 128 Union St, Brunswick

Sweet Evelyn is a Brunswick cafe and micro bakery which is as sweet as its name (apparently named after the owners’ daughter). All the baked goods are made fresh on site every day, from the large range of cupcakes to the brownies, cookies and savouries – only the bread and croissants are brought in from Dench Bakery. […]

HOT: The Kettle Black, 50 Albert Rd, South Melbourne

There’s been so much excited press about The Kettle Black that at 8am on Sunday morning the early birds were already queueing up. And the queues had only grown bigger by the time I left at 9am, not even the brunch happy hour. The question is, does The Kettle Black live up to the hype? […]

HOT: Wide Open Road, 274 Barkly St, Brunswick

Melbourne cafes doesn’t get any more hipster than at Wide Open Road in Brunswick. I don’t mean that in a pejorative way. Wide Open Road is an excellent cafe which is so into its coffee that it houses a roastery, green bean storage and coffee lab. It also stocks other cafes in Melbourne including Small […]

HOT: Neapoli, 30 Russell Place, Melbourne

Neapoli is an all day eatery in Collins Street Melbourne that is many things to many people. By day, a cosy cafe and meeting place for nearby office workers (who particularly like the big boardroom table upstairs). By night, a sexy wine bar with interesting food to share. I visited on shadowy winter’s morning and […]

HOT: The Premises, 202 Bellair St, Kensington

Elegant Bellair Street is a leafy residential road in Kensington and not really a place where you’d expect to find a hip cafe. But The Premises dominates its corner locale (right near Kensington train station) with a standout menu, Seven Seeds coffee and a recycled chic aesthetic that wouldn’t look out of place in the inner […]

HOT: Little Big Sugar Salt, 385 Victoria St, Abbotsford

Little Big Sugar Salt is a small cafe in Abbotsford, a fish out of water in amongst Vietnamese dominated Victoria Street. It hides in a corner building and feels like someone’s house, with three small white-washed rooms with artworks, books in the fireplaces and felt cushioned shipping pallets as bench seating. Now it stands out […]

HOT: Butcher 128, 128 Roberts St, Yarraville

  Suburban Yarraville has sprouted a inner-north-like hipster haven called Butcher 128. The cafe has been converted from an old butcher’s shop and some of the signage is still intact. It’s located at number 128 Roberts Street. Simple equation = Butcher 128. The front room is all aqua and black subway tiles and naked bulb lights with a […]

HOT: Goz City, 502 Lt Collins St, Melbourne

Gözleme is a simple, satisfying filled flatbread from Turkey which has found its way to our markets and festivals….and now Goz City, Australia’s first gözleme store. Before you turn your nose up at Turkish street food being given a permanent residence in Melbourne’s CBD, consider trying the gözleme being served at Goz City. I was […]

HOT: Olive Oil and Butter, 196 Somerville Rd, Kingsville

Kingsville is a sleepy little triangle sandwiched between Yarraville, Seddon and West Footscray. Within that sandwich is a tiny strip of shops on Somerville Road and within that tiny strip of shops is a fantastic Greek bakery and cafe called Olive Oil and Butter. You can’t miss it because when it opens in the mornings […]

HOT: Candied Bakery, 81a Hudsons Rd, Spotswood

Candied Bakery in Spotswood is a bakery and café that’s a direct thumb-your-nose at those I Quit Sugar acolytes. If you’re quitting sugar then steer clear – there’s too much temptation inside. If, one other hand, you are unabashedly NOT quitting sugar then Candied Bakery is a place where sweet tooths die and go to heaven. […]
