I really like Mart 130. Mart is situated on a tram line at stop 130 (hence the anagram – Mart) it has a quirkily decorated dining room, with a beautiful covered balcony at the back. Food is great, service is friendly. My only qualms are that it isn’t located near me and it is too [...]

I recently headed to Amsterdam St cafe for a catch up breakfast with some girlfriends. I had read positive things about Amsterdam St cafe on Melbourne Gastronome and more recently MEL Hot or Not, as a plus, the lovely Sugadeaux supplies the cafe with her gorgeous cupcakes (although, unfortunately Sugadeaux is currently in the States, so no [...]

I recently caught up with my lovely breakfasting companions Z & B at Bourke St cafe the Mess Hall (not to be confused with the band of the same name). I have sporadically eaten lunch at the Mess Hall and had recently been told by several friends that the breakfast was something special. The Mess [...]

A few years ago, I attended a dinner at Parliament House in Brisbane. We were served such delicacies as crab cocktails and salmon roulade. It was a little retro-kitch, but not in an intentionally ironic way. At the time, I didn’t mind at all, however. I felt that it was in keeping with the vibe [...]

I awoke on Good Friday excited at the prospect of a four day weekend then utterly terrified by the realisation that there was NO FOOD IN THE HOUSE. Well, nothing fresh and, after an uncharacteristic freezer clean out, nothing frozen either. All that was available was foods from my overstocked cupboard, heaving with canned tomatoes, chickpeas, [...]

The other week, my fearless weekday breakfast buddies, Z & B had breakfast with me at Von Haus. Von Haus is a little tricky to find – its in Crossley St, situated behind the Paperback book store and diagonally opposite Italian institution Pellegrinis. The space is dark and quite masculine with heavy wooden furniture and [...]

This weekend Mr M and I wandered up to Mixed Business for breakfast. It’s been on my to-do list for a while, particularly after reading positive reviews from Eating Melbourne, Fitzroyalty and Breakfast Out. It’s also the name of a favourite song of mine from Beck (oh yeah!) We arrived to find it full and [...]
