HOT: Grigons & Orr, 445 Queensberry St, North Melbourne

While suburban milk bars are slowly disappearing from our streets, Grigons & Orr in North Melbourne has transformed a corner store into a quirky vintage styled milk bar and cafe. There’s some pavement seating (with a stash of crocheted blankets for chilly days) and a few tables and chairs in the cosy front room – […]

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 […]

HOT: Lygon Food Store, 263 Lygon Street, Carlton

The stylish cafe seats around 35 people max and at around 10am […]

TOT: Lady Melville Cafe and Courtyard, 227 Melville Rd, Brunswick West

Lady Melville is a cutie patootie family-run cafe in a rather dour strip of Brunswick West. The venue is rather deceptive, as the sunny front room leads out into long, narrow and split-level establishment. Starting at the back there’s a rear entrance via Bakers Parade which leads into a sunny courtyard. On the fake grass under […]
