TOT: Lady Melville Cafe and Courtyard, 227 Melville Rd, Brunswick West

HOT: T’Gallant, 1385 Mornington-Flinders Road, Main Ridge

T’Gallant Winery in Red Hill came recommended as a child-friendly winery restaurant so we decided to check out their famous pizzas.

HOT: Sir Charles, 121 Johnston St, Fitzroy

I think there’s a perception that Fitzroy is not a particularly family-friendly area and is full of young hipsters with no kids. Well, having lived in Fitzroy with two very young kids I can attest that it’s not the case – and Sir Charles is a fantastic new addition to the collection of family-friendly cafes […]

HOT: Phat Milk, 208 Mt Alexander Rd, Travancore

Phat Milk in Travancore is one of my favourite family-friendly inner-west food discoveries and it’s shaking up the run-of-the-mill cafe menus normally found in the area. And where is Travancore you might ask? It’s a somewhat forgotten suburb between Flemington and Moonee Ponds. Phat Milk is right by the gates of Flemington Primary School, making […]

HOT: Mork Chocolate Brew House, 150 Errol St, North Melbourne

Mork Chocolate Brew House, sales is a specialty cafe in North Melbourne opened by a Swedish chocolatier and her Australian partner.   Mork Chocolate was previously only sold wholesale and you would have seen their cardboard canisters stocked in cafes and shops all over Melbourne. I’m such a fan that I even own one of their tea […]
