HOT: Brickvention 2011, Melbourne Town Hall, Collins St, Melbourne

Sunday morning. 9:45am. The line was longer than anything I’d ever seen for the Melbourne Comedy Festival, Melbourne Film Festival, Melbourne Symphony Orchestra or any other event held at the Melbourne Town Hall. My friend said that the patient queue that snaked up Collins Street, Russell Street and looped around the building completely reminded him […]

HOT: Arcadia, 193 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

With so many great cafes on Gertrude Street, both old and new, it can be difficult to choose where to go. My advice? Just start from one end and work your way down :–) That way, at some stage you’ll make your way to the pine-tree stencilled windows of the excellent Arcadia. Arcadia ticks all […]

HOT: Penny Farthing Espresso, 206 High St, Northcote

Penny Farthing Espresso is a cute combination of the bygone era of top hats and handlebar moustaches with insouciant Northcote coolness.

Apparently it’s a working apparatus, although the penny farthing enthusiast who built it has only ridden it twice…and fallen off […]

HOT: De Clieu, 187 Gertrude St, Fitzroy

De Clieu is the hottest cafe on the Gertrude Street strip at the moment and it was one of the reasons I’d avoided it till now. The crowd overspilling into the footpath tables and lounging in the frame of the large street-facing windows seemed too cool for school (or at least too cool for me) […]

HOT: Hooked, 384 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

“A chain fish-and-chippery is HOT?” I hear you think dubiously. I too had my doubts until my friends recommended that I give Hooked a try. For health reasons I really need to eat more fish at the moment and with a lack of fishmongers around my home (I’m going to test-run a seafood delivery service […]

HOT: Chez Olivier, 121 Greville St, Prahran

I am an unabashed Francophile so I can’t quite believe that I’d never been to, let alone heard of, Chez Olivier till now. And Mon Dieu what have I been missing?? The door to Chez Olivier is small and unassuming but as soon as you walk in you’re transported to another time and place. (Cute) […]
