La Belle Mitte is the brand new venture for a pair of self confessed Francophiles. The tiny store on Hardware Lane is a macaron-lovers dream, as it is wholly macaron focussed. Macarons are the only food they sell, and the other items on the limited menu are strictly French – tea from Mariage Frères and artisanal […]

I have been searching for the perfect macaron for a long time and have been documenting the search from the beginning of this blog. On the eve of the blog’s first birthday and prior to the (somewhat controversial) Melbourne macaron competition I thought it was time to bring together my macaron posts in a single […]

I have been told more than once (by Corry and Felicia) that I need to try the macarons from Cacao in St Kilda. Unfortunately, the fact that I live Northside has meant that I haven’t managed to cross town on a macaron hunt. While Cacao has a shop at the GPO in the city (and actually, now that […]

I spent a fair chunk of my childhood in the little coastal town of Wye River, on the Great Ocean Road about 30 minutes past Lorne. Back in the day it was a sleepy hollow, with a run-down little store, the Rookery Nook hotel (replete with sticky carpet and arcade games) and the pinball parlour […]

I caught up with my friends Z & B for another mid-week, city breakfast. Z has become quite the fan of Melbourne Gastronome (aren’t we all?) so after reading the review of Hardware Societe, we decided we had to try it for ourselves. Hardware Societe is situated on Hardware Street (not Lane!) in the city […]

A new little cafe/store recently opened in the back streets of Collingwood.  I kept walking past the place when it was closed and was a little intrigued. Unfortunately my ‘research’ (google) advised me that the store was in fact a new concept store for stationer Cristina Re – the store is called “where a girl goes” […]
