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 […]

HOT: The Artisan Bakery & Bar, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2015, Queensbridge Square, Southbank

The Melbourne Food and Wine Festival (Saturday 28 February – Sunday 15 March) is kind of like my idealised version of Christmas (lots of eating without the present traumas) which makes the Artisan Bakery & Bar the ultimate Christmas Village, a place to celebrate some festival cheer. Every day until Sunday 15 March, from 7:30am […]

HOT: Hard Pressed, 76 Wellington Pde, East Melbourne

Did you know wikipedia has a listing of sandwich names from around the world? Head down to ‘C’ and you’ll find the Cuban. It’s the best-seller at Hard Pressed, a daytime cafe in East Melbourne nestled in small strip of shops near Hoddle Street.  The split level cafe is bright and welcoming, with dangling bulbs, […]

HOT: 5 and Dime Bagel, 16 Katherine Place, Melbourne

5 and Dime Bagel’s New York style boiled bagels have been gaining a loyal following from farmer’s market shoppers for the past two years.  While you can still buy 5 and Dime Bagel at Flemington and Gasworks farmers markets, they have opened a permanent store in Katherine Place, near the King St end of Flinders […]

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 […]
