HOT: New School Canteen, 379–381 George St, Fitzroy

New School Canteen in Fitzroy is an all-day eatery which used to serve an eclectic menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes. Since April they’ve changed their offering to focus on just burgers paired with beer (they’ve also moved out the coffee machine). Family-friendly cafes can be hard to find in hipster Fitzroy so New […]

HOT: Mister Fox, Ringwood Golf Club, 352 Canterbury Road, Ringwood

Mister Fox is the resident cafe at the Ringwood Golf Club which means it boasts glorious views of the green from its wall to ceiling windows. Inside the cafe is decor is hipster chic in the burbs and the menu also reflects Melbourne’s cafe standards at suburban prices. For instance, a very pretty granola stacked […]

HOT: Frank’s, 97 Cavanagh Street, Cheltenham

If you’re around Westfield Southland but don’t fancy eating in the food court, seek out Frank’s. It’s a fantastic cafe hidden away in the residential streets of Cheltenham, under the shadow of the behemoth shopping centre. Frank’s is known as ‘Cheltenham’s local’ and it is a highlight amongst an otherwise unremarkable strip of suburban shops. […]

HOT: Duchess of Spotswood, 87 Hudsons Road Spotswood

Almost six years ago Duchess of Spotswood was on the vanguard of the regeneration of Spotswood. A cafe so well-regarded that foodies would even cross the Westgate (gasp) to eat there. It’s now got new owners and while it lacks the same finesse as before some of the dishes that made the original so famous are […]

HOT: Sunshine Social, 64 Glengala Rd, Sunshine West

Sunshine Social transforms an old service station into a hip restaurant and bar inspired by old-school charcoal chicken shops. During balmy weather, the outdoor beer garden is the place to hang out. There are lots of picnic tables bedecked with jaunty yellow umbrellas and room for kids to roam under the eaves of the servo where […]

HOT: Sebastian’s Food and Wine, 303 Hampton Street, Hampton

Sebastian’s Food and Wine holsd prime position for train enthusiasts and commuters in Hampton – on the corner of the strip shops of Hampton Street and facing the railway crossing. As such, most of the outdoor pavement tables are taken up when we visit on a weekday and as we’re with train-spotting Baby 2.0 we […]

HOT: MсGаіn’ѕ Nurѕеrу, Cafe and Fооd Stоrе, 1 Sіmmоnѕ Cоurt, Anglеѕеа

MсGаіn’ѕ Nurѕеrу, Fооd Stоrе аnd Cаfé іѕ a hіddеn jеwеl іn Angelsea and it’s one of my favourite places to eat out on the Surf Coast. A visitor’s first encounter at McGains is the gorgeous food store. It’s enough to make a foodie salivate….but make sure you proceed to the cafe. The cafe is sprawled […]

HOT: The Backyard, 19 Mason St, Newport

The Backyard is a family-friendly cafe in Newport that delivers what it says on the sign – a huge backyard that rivals my modest courtyard at home. The astroturf space is THE place to hang out if you have kids. There’s a long chalkboard wall, lots of toys, space to run and every table looks […]

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 […]
