HOT: Two Bob, 270 Queens Pde, Fitzroy North

So here’s my two bob on Two Bob. The café is an airy, high-ceilinged transformation of a former bank (remnants of the secured bank vault are still there) based in leafy North Fitzroy/Clifton Hill. Inside it’s all white and blonde wood with a few dashes of greenery here and there. Very calming and Scandi-chic. Two […]

HOT: Bottega, 74 Bourke St, Melbourne

You know how there are some restaurants which are your go-to destinations? The default choice for a first date, the default choice for a family gathering, the default choice for Sunday brunch? Well, before I got married Bottega was my default location for introducing boyfriends to my parents for the first time! I knew that […]

HOT: The Wonders of Ancient Mesopotamia, Melbourne Museum, Nicholson Street, Carlton

I lived in London for years and although I liked to visit the British Museum regularly I think I saw about 1/1000th of their vast collection.

HOT: Martha Ray’s, 85 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

Who is Martha? And who is Ray? And why has a cafe set up shop in their house? Martha Ray’s has transformed what seems like a wide corridor of a Victorian terrace house into a pared down cafe. There’s no sign, no hanging pictures and definitely no owls, bunnies or kitschy memorabilia adorning the white-washed […]

HOT: Mister Close, Shop 13 Midtown Plaza, 246 Bourke St, Melbourne

It’s not often that you can return to the same place for lunch every day and eat something different. That’s the joy of Mister Close, a cafe that changes its menu daily ‘because staying the same bores us’. Hear hear! The cafe is actually quite hard to find due to its uninspiring shopping centre corridor […]

HOT: Creperie Le Triskel, 32 Hardware Lane, Melbourne

Sometimes a simple lunch is all I need. Somewhere quiet for me to sit with a drink, something wheat-based to satisfy afternoon hunger pangs and a touch of sweetness at the end. Creperie Le Triskel is a cute café serving traditional Brittany crepes in Hardware Lane. The outside tables are framed by falling Autumn leaves […]
