HOT: The Boulevard Cafe, Poynton’s Nursery, Cnr The Boulevard and Vida St, Essendon

The Boulevard Cafe at Poynton’s Nursery provides a fun shopping and dining experience if you have a green thumb and kids in tow. Poynton’s of Essendon is a large garden emporium on the banks of the Maribyrnong River. The winding, uphill trails lead to many levels containing a huge assortment of plants, ornaments and garden furniture and […]

HOT: Romulus and Remus, 648 Bridge Road, Richmond

Romulus and Remus are characters from Roman mythology – which quickly gives you an idea of the kind of cuisine you can expect from this surprisingly family-friendly restaurant in Bridge Road Richmond. I was invited to sample some items from their broadly Italian menu which is all about ‘modern day feasting’. This translates to sharing plates, […]

HOT: Mozzarella Bar, 103 Victoria St, Seddon

Mozzarella Bar in Seddon is a great child-friendly restaurant which specialises in home-style Italian cooking. And there’s nothing like pizza and pasta for a fuss-free, sale family-friendly meal! There are other items on the menu other than pizza and pasta, vialis 40mg of course. But you should definitely order pizza just for the entertainment value. […]

HOT: Hot Chocolate Festival, Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery, 35 Old Healesville Rd, Yarra Glen

Updated August 2016 Winter is the perfect time to indulge and throughout August the Yarra Valley Chocolaterie & Ice Creamery‘s Hot Chocolate Festival are serving 31 limited edition flavours of hot chocolates. Every week there are 8 flavours on rotation and I was invited to try their week 1 menu consisting of a mix of traditional to unexpected flavours. All the hot chocolates […]

HOT: The Boathouse, 7 The Boulevard, Maribyrnong Park, Moonee Ponds

I used to think that Melbourne only had one river running through it – the Yarra – but since heading westward I’ve realised that the Maribyrnong River can be just as scenic and well-served with bike paths, order parks and eateries. The Boathouse is a sprawling restaurant, bar and cafe owned by Masterchef judge Gary […]

HOT: Fifteen Pounds, 21/23 Railway Pl, Fairfield

Fifteen Pounds doesn’t refer to the weight you’ll gain by eating at this Fairfield cafe – it’s a reference to the recommended tamper pressure for extracting the perfect coffee brew. And coffee is a real focus at this expansive cafe (Campos being the beans of choice) though the food doesn’t come off second-best. The all-day breakfast and […]

HOT: Isabella’s at Rochford Wines, 878-880 Maroondah Hwy, Coldstream

The Yarra Valley is one of the favourite destinations for Melburnians in search of a country drive and I always like to combine a day trip there with a delicious long lunch. On my most recent excursion to Coldstream I visited Isabella’s at stunning Rochfords Wines with an invitation to try their new autumn menu by head chef Ciaran Butler. […]

HOT: Addict, 240-242 Johnston St, Fitzroy

Addict has just opened in Fitzroy and I think it’s particularly well-named because clearly Fitzrovians are addicted to coffee and brunch for yet another cafe to open in the suburb. What makes Addict particularly unique in Fitzroy though is that it is genuinely kid-friendly (trust me, I’ve tried perching on a milk crate in an alley jiggling […]

HOT: Mr Men and Little Miss Children’s High Tea, Aria Bar and Lounge, The Langham Melbourne, 1 Southgate Ave, Southbank

The Mr Men and Little Miss High Tea at The Langham Melbourne has got to be one of the most fun and delicious events happening these July school holidays. Lady AB (Little Miss Tidy) and Baby 2.0 (Mr Happy) and their chauffeur (me) were invited to a preview of the Mr Men and Little Miss High […]
