HOT: Annoying Brother Espresso + Kitchen, 650 Nicholson St, North Fitzroy

Do you have a brother? Does he make you coffee? Cook you eggs? Bake you muffins? If he’s an annoying brother, then he might just do so. Annoying Brother Espresso + Kitchen is a small new cafe that’s opened on the southern end of Nicholson St village on the corner of Bik Lane. I have […]

HOT: Alimentari, 251 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

New cafes seem to spring up every week in Fitzroy so when a cafe manages to outlast the competition for over a decade you know it must be good. So it goes with Alimentari.  I remember when it used to be just a crushed little front room but the back room now opens up for […]

NOT: Kokoro Ramen, 157-159 Lonsdale St, Melbourne

HOT: Mama Baba, 21 Daly St, South Yarra

But that’s ok, when he’s able to bring consistently excellent food and service to the four corners of Melbourne. He’s got it all covered – north, south, east, central…the only place missing is west (and […]

HOT: St Katherine’s, 26 Cotham Rd, Kew

So George Calombaris may not know about the calculation of penalty rates for his waitstaff, but he does know how to run a good quality restaurant. PM24, Hellenic Republic, The Press Club and now St Katherine’s all get my whole-hearted recommendation. St Katherine’s showcases mid-priced, relaxed, high quality region-influenced food and I think this Greek/Turkish/Middle Eastern hybrid […]

HOT: Rooftop Cinema, 6/252 Swanston St, Melbourne

Ah summer! There are certain events that happen every year which really mark the season in Melbourne. Cricket. Tennis. The Suzuki Night Market. Free music in the parks. And one of my favourites, outdoor cinema. Every year I try to get to at least one summer movie screening under the stars – it’s still a […]
