HOT: Mad Cow Thursdays, Hotel Nest, 111 Victoria Ave, Albert Park

Features: pram access; high chairs; and kid-friendly standard menu. A steak for $1? Too good to be true, I hear you say. Well, on Thursdays at Hotel Nest they’ve termed it ‘Mad Cow Thursdays’ when premium John Dee sirloin steaks start from $1 for a 125g steak! The catch is that you’re likely to be […]

HOT: Taxi Dining Room, Level 1 Transport Hotel, Federation Square, Melbourne

Features: lift then pram access; and high chairs. Out of all the dining venues in Federation Square, my favourite is the Transport/Taxi/Transit complex. Transport is great for a quiet riverside drink (though it can get rowdier on weekends), I often take visitors to experience the slick food and expansive Yarra views at the high-end Taxi […]

HOT: Miss Marie, 45 Beetham Pde, Rosanna

Features: high chairs (x 2); change table; pram access; disabled toilet with pram access; and standard menu suitable for kids. Miss Marie is a cafe with an inner-city vibe catering to the discerning suburban cafe set. The first hint of its slightly left-of-centre sense of humour is in small shrub outside its entrance. The hanging […]

Features: high chair pram access playground change table standard menu suitable for kids Fancy a day out in the country? In just 45 minutes from the city you can be out in the vineyards of the Yarra Valley. One of the most popular wineries in the Yarra Valley is Yering Station. It’s the first winery […]

HOT: Parents Retreat, Level 2 Melbourne Central, cnr Swanston and Latrobe St, Melbourne

Like all great things in Melbourne, the Melbourne Central Parents Retreat is hard to find. It’s unmarked, unsigned and down an alleyway in between Decjuba and a jeweller on Level 2 – but instead of an underground bar you have a bright, spacious parents room. The room has all the facilities you’d expect from a […]

HOT: Pope Joan, 77-79 Nicholson Street, Brunswick East

Features: pram access; high chairs; kids menu; and standard menu suitable for kids. At last count, there were 19 blog reviews of Pope Joan on Urbanspoon. So I’m far behind with my visit and now I’m not sure why I’ve waited so long. Pope Joan is the kind of neighbourhood cafe for which you’d be […]

HOT: Small Block, 130 Lygon St, East Brunswick

Small Block is a child-friendly cafe where you don’t have to sacrifice kids’ facilities with quality of food and service and a hip, inner-city ambience. To whit: attention to coffee – the blackboard shows the single origin bean of the day and gives a description of its particular qualities; an extensive all-day breakfast menu which […]

HOT: Healthy takeaway + Hooked giveaway!

Living in the inner city, we are fortunate to be within walking distance to a whole variety of different takeaway joints. Indian, Malaysian, Korean, Japanese, Mexican, Thai – you could have a different cuisine every day of the week. I never used to eat much takeaway before I had NKOTB (preferring to dine out if […]

HOT: Brunetti, 194 – 204 Faraday Street, Carlton

Features: high chair change table enough room for prams menu suitable for children There’s something to be said for revisiting old favourites. Before I moved to Melbourne, every time I visited the city I’d make a pilgrimage to Brunetti. Back then it was only a single store in Carlton, half its current size. I loved the […]

NOT: Piccante Caffe, 216 St Georges Rd, North Fitzroy

Features: pram access high chairs toys and books standard menu suitable for kids – half portions of everything! Am I naive to want it all? I want to eat out. I want to eat good food. I am a mum. I have a baby who needs a high chair. Are all those concepts so incompatible […]
