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: Burn City Smokers, 31A Vernon St, South Kingsville

American barbecue specialists Burn City Smokers have been using the prep kitchen for their successful catering business in South Kingsville for over a year. But it’s only recently that they’ve launched an eat-in and take away venue at the front – Burn City Test Kitchen. To begin with they’re starting slow at the Burn City Test Kitchen. The […]

HOT: Sunshine Social, 64 Glengala Rd, Sunshine West

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 […]

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 […]
