HOT: Iron Henry, 480 Neerim Road, Murrumbeena

Lucky Murrumbeena families can choose between several child-friendly cafes in the shopping strips surrounding Murrumbeena Station. But Iron Henry is the only one with a dedicated kids’ area, making it a great option if you have children who are still at the age where they need entertainment so you can drink your coffee while it’s […]

HOT: Porter Republic, 117 Marine Parade, San Remo

If you’re visiting Gippsland or Phillip Island and the kids (and you) need a break from the drive, I recommend stopping at Porter Republic in San Remo, a small town that’s the gateway for the island. The cafe is light and spacious inside and very ‘Melbourne’ in its eclectic industrial chic decor, mixed with a […]

HOT: Altona Beach, Logan Reserve and Norfolk cafe, 139 The Esplanade, Altona

Altona Beach is the unsung hero of Melbourne’s bay beaches in my view. A local, hidden gem that’s actually pretty amazing and well worth a special trip with the kids if you’re not lucky enough to be a local. For me the perfect beach trip with kids has to contain three elements – a nice […]

HOT: Crafternoon Cafe, 718 Sydney Rd, Brunswick

Love craft – but hate mess? Crafternoon in Brunswick is a fantastic child-friendly cafe and creative craft space on Sydney Road and the perfect location for a rainy day adventure. You can’t help but be inspired when you enter. The front room has a decoupage floor, many customer’s artwork dangling from the ceiling and examples […]

HOT: 400 Gradi Essendon, Shop 1, 110 Keilor Road, Essendon

Award-winning Italian restaurant 400 Gradi has recently opened a new outpost in Essendon and the combination of wood-fired pizza and gelateria make it a family-friendly crowd pleaser. More importantly, the pizza is still one of the best you’ll find in Melbourne. Johnny Di Francesco, chef and owner of 400 Gradi was the world’s best margherita […]

HOT: Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre, 251 Faraday St, Carlton

The newest library to open in Melbourne is in Carlton as part of the Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre. The heritage Victorian era building has been transformed into a buzzing space with the library, meeting and activity rooms and a social enterprise cafe, Wild Timor Coffee. The whole place offers free, fast wifi. The […]

HOT: Little Rose, 309 Bay St (access via 10 Heath St), Port Melbourne

Little Rose is the younger, link cuter sister of the Rose Diner in Port Melbourne. When the historic pub was renovated in  the owners decided to turn the former garage and storage room into a small cafe focusing on a simple menu of jaffles, shakes and coffee. In fact the menu does expand beyond those […]
