HOT: South Melbourne Market tour, 322-326 Coventry St, South Melbourne

During Markets of Melbourne’s Market Week 2014 I took the opportunity to take a guided tour of South Melbourne Market. South Melbourne Market is not a market I frequent often so the tour was a fun and delicious way to discover interesting gems and meet some of the stallholders and characters behind the long-standing market. Here are […]

HOT: Paris to Provence Festival, Como House & Garden, Cnr Williams Road & Lechlade Avenue, South Yarra

Paris to Provence, Melbourne’s favourite festival celebrating all things French, is back in the bucolic surrounds of National Trust’s Como House this weekend. There’s market stalls, music, food and festivities and the festival gets bigger and better every year (this is its third year). Here are my highlights: Grab some charcuterie, cheese and a baguette […]

Creperie Le Triskel is a cute café serving traditional Brittany crepes in Hardware Lane. The outside tables are framed by falling Autumn leaves […]

HOT: Roule Galette, Scott Alley, 241 Flinders Lane, Melbourne

After my less than impressive crepe at Breizoz, I’m not quite sure why I decided to eat crepes again so soon. Maybe because I was at a loose end on a Tuesday night waiting for my film to start and Roule Galette seemed like a friendly little unpretentious cafe where I could read the paper […]

NOT: Breizoz, cnr Gertrude and Brunswick St, Fitzroy

A little piece of Brittany can be found on Fitzroy in the form of Breizoz. This rustic, verging on twee creperie serves a large selection of sweet and savoury buckwheat crepes as well as specialising in French cider. The service was a little scatterbrained when I arrived on a rainy Saturday afternoon, but after I […]
