Regular readers would be well aware (and perhaps irritated) that my posts are often Northside or city-centric, mainly because I live in the North and work in the city. It seems I don’t really get out of my hood that much, so when Claire suggested a breakfast adventure that required going over the Westgate Bridge, I was immediately [...]

I first read about the Bell Jar on Joyce’s blog (and it has since had some positive reviews from Cindy and Michael and Brian). It was a surprise to me that this little place even existed, particularly given its location on the very quiet end of Smith Street, between Alexandra Parade and Queens Parade (well past the [...]

The backstreets of Armadale are not really the place that one expects to find a great cafe. But here it is. Nestled in a residential street, Coin Laundry is a bright, airy space serving great coffee from Allpress and some lovely breakfast dishes. The locals have taken to this ex-laundromat like ducks to water. When [...]

Actually, it had buzz before the beginning, with rumours on Twitter well before the announcement of its impending opening.

On my morning walk to work I have been watching with interest the development of a new cafe on Gertrude St. Thanks to Where’s the beef (those organised food-hounds), I found out that Sonido was finally open and organised breakfast there post-haste! Sonido is a seriously cute little cafe, decked out with artfully mismatched furniture and shelves filled [...]

Boringly, work has been really crazy lately (hence the somewhat reduced frequency of new blog posts). In addition to feeling like I have neglected the blog a bit, it’s also been a bit a little hard to find time to hang with Mr M. The solution? Mid-week breakfast catch ups with the two of us, [...]

Pope Joan has been open for 8 days and is already pumping. But it was always going to be with Matt Wilkinson (who up until last Tuesday was Head Chef at Circa) and Ben Foster (general manager of Carlton’s The Kent) at the helm. Pope Joan is hidden in Nicholson St, Brunswick East, amongst a couple of [...]

A little while back, I wrote a post about new cafe EARL Canteen. Despite its locale at the other end of the city from my workplace, since then I have had several lunches there – including the much discussed pork belly sandwich that it seems everyone has been talking about (Jess dubbed it the ‘sex’ [...]
