HOT: Jellystone Cafe,179 Albion St, Brunswick

If you’re looking for a break from the bustle of Sydney Road, take a turn into Albion Street and look out for Jellystone, a cafe that’s taken over a heritage-listed bluestone house. Just inside the gate is the front courtyard with shaded tables then push open the narrow door to admire the counter filled with […]

HOT: Simon’s Peiking Duck, 197b Middleborough Rd, Box Hill South

Simon’s Peiking Duck is one of those suburban food destinations that draws inner-city types out of their cobblestone alleyways and power-steering down the freeway. Many of them have followed Simon Lay from his kitchen at Old Kingdom in Collingwood out to the lower reaches of Box Hill, all in the hope of finding the most perfect […]

As Jetsetting Joyce one of my claims to fame is that I have visited Rome five times. I love the city and have a few favourite (eating) haunts, one of which is Lo Zozzone.

HOT: Afternoon tea, Burch and Purchese Sweet Studio, 647 Chapel St, South Yarra

For a pre-Easter treat Gourmet Chick and I cycled down to South Yarra dressed in ladylike garb to partake in an afternoon tea at Burch and Purchese. Though really we should have worn  our Mad Hats as the afternoon was definitely a trip to Wonderland. In the pink and brown confection of a store you will find […]

HOT: Pei Modern, 45 Collins St, Melbourne

Pei Modern is a two-faced affair. The old post office has been gutted and transformed into a Mark Best (Marque), Peter Bartholomew and David Mackintosh (MoVida) project.  On stage right is the fine-dining area which is very relaxed in its outlook – no starched tablecloths, no gilded chandeliers. On the other side is a café/bar offering […]
