HOT: Hawthorn Common, Level 1, 302 Burwood Road, Hawthorn

Welcome to the Closed Loop. Hawthorn Common is a cafe which is all about living sustainably so everything is made from scratch on site and any food waste is processed to compost. The spacious dining area, particularly the sun-dappled and umbrella-shaded deck, is a popular place to take kids. There’s pram access from the street via […]

HOT: Moby, 1150 High Street, Armadale

Moby is relatively new to Melbourne’s cafe scene and it is blooming in its prime corner spot on High Street Armadale. The cafe expands over three stories with a menu billed as being ‘Ottolenghi inspired’ from the ex-chef of Barry in Northcote. As such, you can expect to find healthy salads, Middle-Eastern influences and a generally sunny […]

HOT: Two Brothers, 558 Mitcham Road, Mitcham

Two Brothers brings a bit of inner city cool to a local strip of shops in Mitcham with a surprisingly sophisticated menu and Veneziano Forza coffee. The cafe is quite hard to find as the signage is subtle and the entrance is dominated by a massive Charcoal Chicken mural. Welcome to suburbia! If it’s a […]

HOT: Greenfields, Cnr Lakeside Drive and Queens Rd, Albert Park

Greenfields is a gorgeous cafe inside Albert Park with prime position on Lakeside Drive and luscious green (naturally) views of the golf course and lake. The cafe is spread out over three expansive dining areas. My favourite spot is a table by the wall-to-ceiling glass windows where you can bask in the sunshine and be sheltered from […]

HOT: Tommy Ruff, 574A Main St, Mordialloc

Are you looking for Melbourne’s best fish and chips? Tommy Ruff (Elsternwick, Windsor and Mordialloc) is consistently named in the top 10 lists and after trying it out I have to agree. They do excellent fish and chips…and everything seafood! The Mordialloc store is decked out like a salty sea shanty with bleached and painted […]

HOT: The Pickers Union, 3 Mackey St, Geelong

A bit off the beaten track in Geelong you’ll find a bright and sunny cafe called The Pickers Union, adjoining the Geelong Vintage Market in North Geelong. While it doesn’t have views of Corio Bay or the beach (it overlooks a car park in a semi-industrial area) it makes up for the lack of scenery […]

HOT: Tuckerberry Hill, Berry Farm and Cafe, 35 Becks Road, Drysdale

Tuckerberry Hill Berry Farm and Café is a small locally operated farm located in the picturesque Bellarine Peninsula town of Drysdale. It is open during the warmer months only – basically when berries are in season. Usually that means strawberries October to May and blueberries from December to end of February. Here you will enjoy picking […]

HOT: ACMI Cafe and Bar, Level 1, ACMI, Federation Square, Melbourne

Finding great places to take kids to eat in the Melbourne CBD can be a hard ask. One of our favourites when visiting Federation Square is the ACMI Cafe and Bar, adjoining ACMI, Australia’s national museum of film, TV, video games, digital culture and art. ACMI Cafe and Bar is open to public 7 days […]

HOT: Little Captain, 353 Inkerman St, St Kilda East

Little Captain is a small family-owned cafe in a prime position in St Kilda East/Balaclava – its back area opens out onto Hewison Reserve and a fenced playground. The cafe itself is a little higgledy-piggledy, with a squashy front room and a back room filled with toys for rummaging. If the weather’s good I recommend […]

HOT: Second Home, 21 Brougham St, Eltham

Second Home is a large cafe housed in an Alistair Knox-designed brick industrial building in Eltham. It’s by cafe maestro Jason Jones (The Stables of Como, Friends of Mine, Go West) and worth a special trip to the leafy ‘burbs. Second Home takes the bones of the 70s building and transforms it into a light-filled, expansive dining […]
