HOT: Beatrix 688 Queensberry St, North Melbourne

Following Beatrix on social media has been terrible for my self-control and my waistline. This tiny North Melbourne cafe regularly posts a mouth-watering list of the day’s specials, from the ciabattas to their famous cakes and biscuits. Many a time my newsfeed has convinced me to veer towards North Melbourne in search of a sweet […]

HOT: Woven, 175B Stephen St, Yarraville

Woven is a small cafe at the bottom of a newish warehouse conversion in Yarraville. It feels like Collingwood without the high prices and cooler-than-thou attitude. They have fitted out the compact space with wood, brick, polished concrete and exposed beams, in keeping with its formerly industrial heritage. There are a few outdoor seats with […]

HOT: The Deli Counter, 211-213 Queen Street, Melbourne

Weekday cafe The Deli Counter is the place to get a healthy, tasty lunch in the legal and financial centre of the CBD. The Deli Counter sets itself apart from the pre-packed sandwiches that abound in that part of town. The kitchen specialises in the owners’ recipes of Israeli food with some general Mediterranean influences […]

HOT: Dr Morse, 274 Johnston St, Abbotsford

From little things, big things grow….So the story goes with Dr Morse, a cafe/restaurant in Abbotsford that started out as a coffee window (dubbed Jr Morse) by Victoria Park station. It has now expanded into a spacious interior overlooked by an original 1930s mural advertising ‘Dr Morse’s Indian Root Pills’ and a secluded beer garden. […]

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: Kinfolk, 673 Bourke St, Melbourne

Kinfolk is a place that makes you feel good about eating out. That’s because the café is a social enterprise run mostly by volunteers and all profits go towards four Australian and international development projects. Customers can even choose where their money goes by popping a coffee bean into one of the project jars. The space […]

HOT: Hero Subs, 1 Stewart Street, Tenancy 1, back of RMIT SAB Building 80, 445 Swanston St, Melbourne

When I was at uni there wasn’t much in the way of food offerings – nasty refectory food and make-you-own sandwiches was about the extent of it. Luckily for RMIT students, staff and nearby office workers that Hero Subs are available right on campus (they also have other stores at Collins Street and Hardware Lane […]

HOT: Cobb Lane, 13 Anderson St, Yarraville

The Eagle Has Landed. Matt Forbes, British baker and pastry chef extraordinaire and whose wares have been popping up all over Melbourne’s best cafes, has opened up his own bakery café in Yarraville and called it Cobb Lane. The name evokes a cosy, slightly hidden establishment wafting aromas of freshly baked cob loaves and that’s […]

HOT: Smith Street Alimentari, 302 Smith St, Collingwood

It’s just too hot to cook! Fortunately inner north favourites Brunswick Street Alimentari and Gorski and Jones now have a new sibling to add to the Holy Trinity of good food – the food store Smith Street Alimentari. All of the three cafes/restaurants share a few things in common while carving out their own identity. […]

HOT: Spring Street Grocer, 157 Spring St, Melbourne

Wow. Spring has really sprung in Melbourne town this week. As I whip off my woolly hat and peel off my opaque tights I have only one thought…bring on gelati weather! After hibernating for most of winter I’m well due for a trip to the most hyped gelati counter in Melbourne, to the stainless steel […]
