HOT: Westside Discovery Tours

A few times a year Maribyrnong City Council run ‘Westside Discovery Tours’, a series of free tours for locals and visitors to introduce them to the secrets of Melbourne’s west side. (Read about some of their previous tours here and here). New tours and now available for booking now and covers topics as diverse as art, […]

HOT: Station Street Trading Company, 166 Station St, Port Melbourne

In a pretty pocket of Port Melbourne, on leafy Station Street, you’ll find Station Street Trading Company. It’s a snug corner cafe run by the owners of Armadale’s Coin Laundry. The space isn’t huge either inside or out, so when the weather’s nice take advantage of the provided rugs and wicker hampers with made to […]

HOT: Agathe Patisserie, Rear 97 Chapel St, Windsor (Entry via Artists Lane ) and Prahran Market, 163 Commercial Rd, South Yarra

You know the reason why I could never be (willingly) gluten-free or sugar-free? Because I’m a pastry FIEND. And I love discovering French patisseries in Melbourne, with my newest find being Agathe Patisserie in Windsor. I have been stalking and drooling over Agathe Patisserie on Instagram for a while and finally had the opportunity to […]

HOT: Xuan Banh Cuon, 232 Hampshire Rd, Sunshine

Eating out in multicultural Sunshine can be a little overwhelming if you don’t have a recommendation. Luckily for me, the path to Xuan Banh Cuon has been trodden by some of my favourite food bloggers – Footscray Food Blog, Consider the Sauce and Melbourne Gastronome. Add my voice to their chorus because the banh cuon […]

HOT: Hobba, 428 Malvern Rd, Prahran

Hobba is in Prahran, the other side of town for me, but it’s a testament as to how good it is that I would happily cross the river to eat there. It was one of the 3 star award winners in 2014’s Good Food Under $30. The cafe is set in a huge warehouse space in […]

HOT: By Josephine 365 Sydney Road Brunswick

By Josephine is a Brunswick patisserie and cafe straight out of a Paris salon. The pressed ceiling and all-white walls present a luxurious feel to the little daytime cafe, which specialises in macarons, pastries and savouries made on premises. The only thing that’s brought in is the bread and ultra-flaky croissants, both from Cavallini in […]

HOT: The Guilty Moose, 143 Victoria Ave, Albert Park

There are no moose to be found in Melbourne and who knows why it’s guilty – but The Guilty Moose is a sweet cafe in Albert Park with a neat and interesting menu and a curious name. I love that it’s open every day, bright and early at 7am for the beach joggers and dog […]

HOT: Bo De Trai, 94 Hopkins St, Footscray

I’m not vegetarian but I can appreciate a good vegetarian restaurant when I encounter one! And Bo De Trai, a cheap and cheerful vegetarian Vietnamese/Chinese restaurant in Footscray, is awesome. In fact, I think some of their dishes are better than their original meaty versions. Bo De Trai is a restaurant which is linked to the […]

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. […]
