HOT: High Tea at Lobby Lounge, The Westin, 205 Collins St, Melbourne

I can think of no better way to spend a cold, rainy afternoon than in front of an open fireplace drinking tea. Better still, drinking tea, eating cakes and lounging around reading an Evelyn Waugh novel. I recently indulged in my perfect rainy-day afternoon scenario with High Tea at the Lobby Lounge of The Westin […]

HOT: Mitte, 76 Michael Street (cnr Rowe Street), North Fitzroy

I’m not sure whether Mitte is named after the district in Berlin and the German word for ‘middle’ but let’s just say at the outset that there are no German references in the menu, decor or service of this neighbourhood cafe. It’s in a little hideaway location on the corner of two residential streets in […]

HOT: The Wine Bar Restaurant, Yering Station, 38 Melba Hwy, Yarra Glen

My most recent visit to The Commoner was for Sunday lunch. I reckon Sundays are the best days […]

HOT: Demetri’s Feast, 141 Swan St, Richmond

Oh Demetri’s Feast. If only you weren’t so small. If only your food wasn’t so good. If only your service wasn’t so friendly. If only you weren’t so cool. Then it’d be easier to visit you all the time. Demetri’s Feast was crowned Melbourne’s best breakfast in The Age’s Cheap Eats 2010 and that accolade […]
