HOT: Mio Locale 465 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy North

Mio Locale fills a culinary and coffee gap in an odd no-man’s land section of Brunswick Street. Fitzroy’s abundant supply of cafe and shopping scene peters out abruptly at Alexandra Parade and don’t really resume again until you hit North Fitzroy village. The new Bellini apartments have now been completed on the corner of Alexandra […]

HOT: Ashkelon Food Store, 321 St Georges Rd, Fitzroy North

I wished my kitchen looked like Ashkelon. The thing that first draws your eye when you enter this single-room cafe/foodstore is the floor-to-ceiling plywood shelves.

So it was I was trekking to the bank, chemist and Officeworks when I took a double-take. What used to be the Recreation Hotel has been transformed into Marmalade […]

HOT: Annoying Brother Espresso + Kitchen, 650 Nicholson St, North Fitzroy

Do you have a brother? Does he make you coffee? Cook you eggs? Bake you muffins? If he’s an annoying brother, then he might just do so. Annoying Brother Espresso + Kitchen is a small new cafe that’s opened on the southern end of Nicholson St village on the corner of Bik Lane. I have […]
