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.

La Belle Miette is an adorable French patisserie that looks like it just dropped out of the set of Sofia Coppola’s movie Marie Antoinette. The shop is beautiful to behold, a tiny jewel box awash with candy pastels, embossed and beribboned packaging in the windows and fine china cups (my quick snapshot doesn’t do it […]

NOT: Madame K’s Vegetarian, 327 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

This is a post about the competition between a reigning champ vs the newcomer. Madame K’s Vegetarian is a new vegetarian restaurant in Fitzroy with an Asian bent (Asian being anything from the Indian subcontinent to the Japanese archipelago). Unfortunately, it is situated almost across the road from Vegie Bar, a long-time Fitzroy favourite which […]
