HOT: Hutch & Co, 251 Main Street, Lilydale

Lilydale may be the end of the train line but you can still find a hub of inner city cafe cool at Hutch & Co, thanks to the owners of Chapter Too in Heathmont. Hutch & Co is located on Lilydale’s main street, a highlight amongst the unremarkable strip shops. In the 1800s the spot […]

HOT: New School Canteen, 379–381 George St, Fitzroy

New School Canteen in Fitzroy is an all-day eatery which used to serve an eclectic menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes. Since April they’ve changed their offering to focus on just burgers paired with beer (they’ve also moved out the coffee machine). Family-friendly cafes can be hard to find in hipster Fitzroy so New […]

HOT: Urban Projuice, 315 Montague St, Albert Park

Hidden in a gorgeous Victorian terrace house in Albert Park you’ll find a wholefoods vegetarian cafe and juice bar called Urban Projuice. While the elevated front entrance may not shout ‘kid-friendly’ once you get up the stairs you’ll discover a few features which make this one of my favourite pit stops in Albert Park. Sit […]

HOT: Frank’s, 97 Cavanagh Street, Cheltenham

It’s a fantastic cafe hidden away in the residential streets of Cheltenham, under the shadow of the behemoth shopping centre. Frank’s is known as ‘Cheltenham’s local’ and it is a highlight amongst an otherwise unremarkable strip of suburban shops. […]

HOT: Commonfolk, 16 Progress Street, Mornington

Mornington’s Main Street is full of cafes but if you’re after the BEST food and coffee in town it’s worth taking a little detour away from the beach to the gritty industrial side to Commonfolk cafe. Commonfolk is primarily a roastery and inside the large roasting shed is a fantastic cafe with the sort of hip […]

HOT: Duchess of Spotswood, 87 Hudsons Road Spotswood

Almost six years ago Duchess of Spotswood was on the vanguard of the regeneration of Spotswood. A cafe so well-regarded that foodies would even cross the Westgate (gasp) to eat there. It’s now got new owners and while it lacks the same finesse as before some of the dishes that made the original so famous are […]

HOT: Sebastian’s Food and Wine, 303 Hampton Street, Hampton

Sebastian’s Food and Wine holsd prime position for train enthusiasts and commuters in Hampton – on the corner of the strip shops of Hampton Street and facing the railway crossing. As such, most of the outdoor pavement tables are taken up when we visit on a weekday and as we’re with train-spotting Baby 2.0 we […]

HOT: The Backyard, 19 Mason St, Newport

The Backyard is a family-friendly cafe in Newport that delivers what it says on the sign – a huge backyard that rivals my modest courtyard at home. The astroturf space is THE place to hang out if you have kids. There’s a long chalkboard wall, lots of toys, space to run and every table looks […]

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.
