HOT: Éclair Affair High Tea, Lobby Lounge, The Westin Melbourne, 250 Collins St, Melbourne

Melbourne offers a high tea option for just about every sweet desire and The Westin Melbourne has just launched an afternoon tea service which pays homage to buttery, fluffy, choux pastry – it’s an Eclair Affair! I was invited to sample Éclair Affair and settled myself into a fat leather chair one sunny afternoon while […]

HOT: StArt Up: Top Arts 2014, Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, Federation Square, Melbourne

Top Arts is arguably Victoria’s premier art accolade for young artists completing their VCE in Art or Studio Arts studies. For the last two decades years, a handful of entrants have been selected from across the state to exhibit their work in Victoria’s biggest and most prestigious gallery, the National Gallery of Victoria. This year, […]

HOT: Hawthorn Common, 302 Burwood Rd, Hawthorn

Hawthorn Common is a café that’s all about environmental sustainability and a complete wholefoods lifestyle. If that’s too many buzzwords in one food philosophy for you, check out the work that’s going on Hawthorn Common first. The cafe were recently recognised in The Age’s Good Food Under $30 2014 where they took out the gong […]

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: Good Cycles Mobile Bike Mechanics, corner of Village Street and Fishplate Lane, Docklands

We recently moved house and along with it all our bicycles – a kids balance bike, single speed, ladies step-through, fold up and cargo bike (if that sounds like a lot I got rid of another three before we moved!). So I thought now was an opportune time to get our fleet of bikes serviced. […]

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: Cecconi’s Flinders Lane Restaurant and Cellar Bar, 61 Flinders Ln, Melbourne

Cecconi’s Flinders Lane is a much-awarded Italian restaurant stalwart in Melbourne and their recent revamp in décor drips of old school glamour with a capital G. My memories of Cecconi’s was as a place of celebratory feasting with friends, romantic tete-a-tetes and even a wedding. I was invited to sample their new seasonal menu and […]

HOT: 1+1 Dumpling Noodles, 84 Hopkins St, Footscray

Dumplings + Noodles = my favourite two carb-loading Chinese dishes. And at 1 +1 Dumpling Noodles you can order not only dumplings and noodles but lots of other interesting Xinjiang food, a far cry from your run-of-the-mill Cantonese food that often labelled as ‘Chinese’ food in Australia as if it was one huge, homogenous cuisine. […]

HOT: The Little Man Café, 158 Victoria St, Seddon

On a cold and windy morning the first thing that struck me as I entered The Little Man Café Seddon was the bright airiness of the decor. Pushing over the door was like basking in a dose of Scandinavian sunshine – the kind that illuminates the sky for 22 hours in a day. It made […]

HOT: Sunshine Pho Fever, Melbourne Food and Wine Festival 2014, Sunshine

Pho is pho is pho – right? WRONG. This Vietnamese rice noodle soup is a dish which many people hold dear to their hearts. Everyone has their favourite haunts and a discussion about where in Melbourne to find the best pho in Melbourne leads to much passionate and parochial debate. My Vietnamese friends always maintain that […]
