HOT: Brunswick Flour Mill, 337-341 Sydney Rd, Brunswick

Brunswick Flour Mill is a casual, pretension-free cafe in the heart of Sydney Road. As their name suggests they are an artisan bakery as well as dining out venue, with loaves, cakes, pastries and ready-made sandwiches all on offer. The all day breakfast/lunch sit down menu is not particularly fancy and frankly a bit dated […]

NOT: Afternoon Tea, Sofi’s, The Sofitel Melbourne, 25 Collins St, Melbourne

It’s my not-so-secret mission to taste test every high tea available in metropolitan Melbourne within the time of this blog. I think that’s an entirely doable goal – so far I’ve hit Stranger’s Corridor, The Langham Melbourne, The Westin and now The Sofitel. Sadly, the weekday high tea at Sofi’s, the lobby lounge of The […]

HOT: Friday BBQ, Section 8, 27-29 Tattersalls Lane, Melbourne

To celebrate summer (or whenever the warm weather decides to end for good) popular container bar Section 8 are hosting a Friday barbecue of footlong hotdogs. Section 8 is one of my go-to venues for out of town visitors – it’s pretty hidden away in a Chinatown vacant lot, grungy cool in the way Melbourne […]

HOT: Hako, 310 Flinders Ln, Melbourne

Hako is a refined yet relaxed Japanese restaurant located in the office precinct of Flinders Lane. In the narrow half-block between Elizabeth and Queen Streets there are a lot of lunch options and my stomach firmly supports a trip to Hako. The interior design is Zen spare – nothing adorns the expanse of off-white walls […]

HOT: Mottainai Cycles, 41 Kerr St, Fitzroy

Does Fitzroy/Collingwood has the greatest density of bike shops per square kilometre in Melbourne? Being a cycling fan and a local I had thought I was familiar with all the bike shops in the area – but just recently I stumbled across Mottainai Cycles. As in literally stumbled – I tripped over their board sign […]

HOT: CERES Organic Cafe, CERES Community Environment Park Cnr Roberts and Stewart Streets, Brunswick East

CERES Community Environmental Park is arguably Melbourne’s hippie hub. CERES stands for Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies and it’s a not-for-profit, sustainable urban farm located on the banks of Merri Creek in East Brunswick. But whether you wear hemp fisherman’s pants or carry a designer label handbag, I think everyone would enjoy […]
