Min Lokal was a favourite breakfast haunt of mine a few years back. More recently, I’ve overlooked it as the range of breakfast options nearby has increased exponentially. I thought it was time for a revisit and Mr M and I popped in for a mid-week breakfast on my birthday. It was pretty darn quiet […]

      I’ll keep this pretty simple. I love the Fox. The Fox is another of my local pubs and it is my favourite haunt for a Sunday afternoon drink. The Fox is pretty unparalleled when you are perched on the rooftop beer garden and the weather is lovely. Look at that view back […]

Sometimes I’m surprised when I realise that I haven’t blogged about one of my favourite places (the Gem and the Fox are other good examples). Casa Farro definitely falls into this category. Casa Farro gets a lot of love from me as it is sweet and quirky, they make awesome pizzas and… I can eat […]

Last year, Pierre Roelofs began dessert evenings at Cafe Rosamond in Collingwood. Every Thursday, hordes of excitable dessert fiends would jostle for a coveted spot inside the tiny Cafe Rosamond. The dessert evenings are held from 7pm – 11pm and you can choose from one, two or three courses of dessert ($20, $30 and $40 […]

                I have been meaning to visit Charcoal Lane for some time, particularly since I met chef Damien Styles at Taste of Melbourne and got to sample a little of his food.

     I really like the Commoner. Mr M and I first visited midway through last year (pre-blog!), when I was in the throes of wedding planning. After having my hair and make-up trial for the big day, I decided we should at least go out somewhere, so that the effort was not wasted (although formal hair […]

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 other day a friend mentioned to me that the somewhat horrific Father Flanagan’s Irish Pub (on the corner of Smith and Alexandra Pde) had been transformed and was now serving cracking pub food with an American bent. I decided to check it out immediately. Mr M and I went fairly early on a Friday […]

We headed to Embrasse to celebrate a very special milestone – Mr M’s thirtieth! We had heard very good things about chef Nicolas Poelaert’s food and he has an impressive background, including working at Michelin starred Bras Restaurant in Laguiole, France. Embrasse is located in Drummond Street, Carlton in a space that was previously occupied by three, […]

Mr M and I recently visited Next Door Diner for a Friday night date. Next Door Diner has been on my to visit list for ages. It has a great pedigree in that it is owned and run by the team behind the Breakfast Club (which I loved), and which is located next door (get it?). […]
