HOT: Lolo and Wren, 484 Albion St, Brunswick West

In the nether regions of Brunswick West and at the base of an uninspiring high rise block lies Lolo and Wren, a little cafe that’s gained a loyal following thanks to imaginative Spanish-inspired food, Five Senses coffee and a welcoming vibe. It’s clearly a labour of love for the owners, who are in charge of […]

HOT: Little Big Sugar Salt, 385 Victoria St, Abbotsford

Little Big Sugar Salt is a small cafe in Abbotsford, a fish out of water in amongst Vietnamese dominated Victoria Street. It hides in a corner building and feels like someone’s house, with three small white-washed rooms with artworks, books in the fireplaces and felt cushioned shipping pallets as bench seating.

On my most recent excursion to Coldstream I visited Isabella’s at stunning Rochfords Wines with an invitation to try their new autumn menu by head chef Ciaran Butler. […]

HOT: Middle Fish, 122-128 Berkeley St, Carlton

Middle Fish is a Carlton cafe serving Southern Thai dishes in a converted warehouse close to Melbourne Uni. It’s like beachside shack mixed with Thai influences, including a stunning chandelier made of tiny traditional Thai rice bowls made by Thai artist Torlarp Larpjaroensook. There were touches of his wrought iron work everywhere, especially above the red upholstered booths created […]
