HOT: Story In A Cup, Shop 4, 9 Yarra Lane, South Yarra

I know, I know, it’s hardly ice-cream weather at the moment (but forecast sunny today and tomorrow!). But I for one cannot resist ice-cream any time of year. Especially where you can help yourself! For this post I’m lumping frozen yoghurt in with ice-cream as in my mind they’re much the same, though frozen yoghurt […]

HOT: Chez Dre, Rear of 285-287 Coventry St, South Melbourne

Happy Bastille Day! While it’s not our national holiday, why not use it as an excuse to pop into new French boulangerie and patisserie Chez Dre?

HOT: Naked for Satan, 285 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

When Naked for Satan first opened in September 2010, it was all about the drinking. The bar infuses its own vodka in a polished metal engine-like contraption and as the wall of wine attests, it’s a gathering place for people to drink and be merry.
