HOT: Moby, 1150 High Street, Armadale

Moby is relatively new to Melbourne’s cafe scene and it is blooming in its prime corner spot on High Street Armadale. The cafe expands over three stories with a menu billed as being ‘Ottolenghi inspired’ from the ex-chef of Barry in Northcote. As such, you can expect to find healthy salads, Middle-Eastern influences and a generally sunny […]

HOT: Greenfields, Cnr Lakeside Drive and Queens Rd, Albert Park

Greenfields is a gorgeous cafe inside Albert Park with prime position on Lakeside Drive and luscious green (naturally) views of the golf course and lake. The cafe is spread out over three expansive dining areas. My favourite spot is a table by the wall-to-ceiling glass windows where you can bask in the sunshine and be sheltered from […]

HOT: Tommy Ruff, 574A Main St, Mordialloc

Are you looking for Melbourne’s best fish and chips? Tommy Ruff (Elsternwick, Windsor and Mordialloc) is consistently named in the top 10 lists and after trying it out I have to agree. They do excellent fish and chips…and everything seafood! The Mordialloc store is decked out like a salty sea shanty with bleached and painted […]

HOT: The Pickers Union, 3 Mackey St, Geelong

A bit off the beaten track in Geelong you’ll find a bright and sunny cafe called The Pickers Union, adjoining the Geelong Vintage Market in North Geelong. While it doesn’t have views of Corio Bay or the beach (it overlooks a car park in a semi-industrial area) it makes up for the lack of scenery […]

HOT: ACMI Cafe and Bar, Level 1, ACMI, Federation Square, Melbourne

Finding great places to take kids to eat in the Melbourne CBD can be a hard ask. One of our favourites when visiting Federation Square is the ACMI Cafe and Bar, adjoining ACMI, Australia’s national museum of film, TV, video games, digital culture and art. ACMI Cafe and Bar is open to public 7 days […]

HOT: Little Captain, 353 Inkerman St, St Kilda East

Little Captain is a small family-owned cafe in a prime position in St Kilda East/Balaclava – its back area opens out onto Hewison Reserve and a fenced playground. The cafe itself is a little higgledy-piggledy, with a squashy front room and a back room filled with toys for rummaging. If the weather’s good I recommend […]

HOT: The Hungry Peacock, 16 Mornington–Tyabb Road, Tyabb

The Hungry Peacock in Tyabb is an amazing cafe and play space that is well worth a special trip if you’re not local to the area. Parents own the large sprawling cafe and they’ve thought of everything to keep the kids fed and entertained and the adults fed and watered. There’s even a sign telling you […]

HOT: Faraday’s Cage, 325-329 Gore Street, Fitzroy

Faraday’s Cage is an enclosure used to block electric fields – as well as a family friendly yet hip warehouse cafe and bakery in Fitzroy. The business is owned by a John Petrou, a former electrical engineer, and his wife and they have turned his passion for baking into their new project. Faraday’s Cage is […]

HOT: Uncle Drew, 23 Groome St, Clifton Hill

Uncle Drew cafe in Clifton Hill has taken over Squirrel Cafe with an on-trend menu, while retaining its predecessor’s local, family-friendly feel. The site is a former milk bar and the lightbox signage for milk has been retained for nostalgia’s sake. Inside it’s homely and comfortable and spread out over two rooms. I’m not sure […]

HOT: Servery and Spoon, 137-139 Waverley Road, Malvern East

Servery and Spoon is a spacious family-friendly cafe in East Malvern and it serves its well-heeled clientele well with an all day menu as well as a deli and foodstore next door. For kids they have pram space, high chairs and a menu pasted into a Little Men book. Genius really, as it acts as […]
