HOT: Alimentari, 251 Brunswick St, Fitzroy

Features: high chairs; pram access (just); and kid-friendly standard menu. New cafes seem to spring up every week in Fitzroy so when a cafe manages to outlast the competition for over a decade you know it must be good. So it goes with Alimentari.  I remember when it used to be just a crushed little front […]

HOT: Carolina, 11 Nicholson St, East Brunswick

Features: high chairs (coming soon); pram access (from rear); outdoor area including sandpit and toys; disabled toilets with pram access; kids menu; and kid-fri endly standard menu  (half serves). Carolina is a new cafe in East Brunswick which I’m sure will become very popular with the pram-pushing set in the inner north. What was a […]

HOT: Bluebird Espresso, 134 Johnston St, Collingwood

Features: pram access outdoor area suitable for kids kid-friendly menu You had me at hello. There are some cafes which just grab you by the coat and give you a big bear hug, providing smiles and instant comfort. I loved Bluebird Espresso from the moment I spotted it – a retro blue bike chained to […]

HOT: Coin Laundry, 61 Armadale St, Armadale

It’s a testament to the power of positive reviews that a small cafe on the opposite side of the river to me, hidden in a residential area, can capture my attention such that I’ll make a special trip there early on a Sunday morning. Such is the pulling power of Coin Laundry. Just like the […]

HOT: Wye River General Store, 35 Great Ocean Rd, Wye River

Features: high chairs; pram access; kid-friendly standard menu; and playground. With summer holidays arriving my thoughts turn to the beach and the coast. To be exact, my thoughts are turning to where to eat at the beach and the coast. And one of my recommendations is Wye River General Store. As the name suggests, it’s […]

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 […]

HOT: The Wine Bar Restaurant, Yering Station, 38 Melba Hwy, Yarra Glen

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 […]
