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 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. The restaurant is run by Mission Australia and provides work experience and training to Aboriginal and disadvantaged [...]

     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 [...]

Day 5 at 2pm: De Clieu was pumping. Seven Seeds‘ new baby had buzz from the beginning. Actually, it had buzz before the beginning, with rumours on Twitter well before the announcement of its impending opening. De Clieu opened on a Tuesday, had a series of reviews in the first 4 days (the first by My [...]

I was highly amused when I read about the opening of a new restaurant on Smith St named Huxtable. Naturally, this was the first thing to come to mind: I have such strong memories of the Cosby Show, many of which relate to those ridiculous jumpers that Bill wore (and if you want a trip down memory [...]

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, [...]

I caught up with friends for a late Saturday breakfast – so late it wasn’t actually morning anymore and so late that I needed a “pre-breakfast breakfast” to tide me over. Shire is a new-ish cafe located in Victoria Street, Fitzroy, a comfortable block away from the Brunswick Street madness. Happily for us, it does [...]

I have a lot of fond memories of eating at Guru da Dhaba in Johnston St. I met my now sister-in-law there for the first time, had many a boozy boozy dinner there, and the first meal in our new house was take-away from there, eaten in the back garden while slugging champagne. A little while [...]

My workplace has a wine club and we recently had an end of year function at St Jude’s Cellars. I won’t go into the details but it was quite a boozy evening, with 10 wines on the menu (2 sparkling, 3 whites, 4 reds and a fortified) – all that wine was supplemented with a [...]
