HOT: The Commoner, 122 Johnston St, Fitzroy

The Commoner is one of my local favourites – great food, reasonable prices, friendly service and lots of different spaces depending on your dining needs, from intimate couples tables to the outdoor courtyard to upstairs private dining room. My most recent visit to The Commoner was for Sunday lunch. I reckon Sundays are the best days […]

A year later, the focus seems to have turned to […]

The dining room at The Provincial has an earthy stone-set warmth which is a fitting backdrop to the rustic European style […]

HOT: Slowpoke Espresso, 157 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

This time last year it seemed that Smith Street was the place to open a cafe or restaurant. Funky eateries launched one after the other and the punters flocked to the slowly gentrifying grunginess. This year it seems that maybe it’s Brunswick Street’s turn, with two new openings within a short space of each other […]
