Review:Lorna, Ferntree Gully

There’s always a time when you visit a place and it makes you realise you need to push most of those 5 star reviews down to a 4.5. Lorna was that place for me. Modern crisp interiors, amazingly friendly staff and some fabulous food, it makes you rethink everything you expect a suburban cafe to…

Review: A Girl Called Jayne, Elwood

If there’s anything that makes me sad about leaving Elwood, it has to be this great new cafe. Replacing the less than impressive Turtle Cafe (but still retaining their great coffee) A Girl Called Jayne gives you a reason to start walking to the end of Ormond Road again! It was great to see A…

Review: The Last Jar, CBD

The Last Jar is a typical Irish pub and restaurant located near to Queen Vic Market in the North of the CBD. They always have lots going on, from live music to menu specials to the occasional mussel festival. We were invited down to try their 5 course Chef’s Menu. Exclusively on Saturday nights, this…

Review: Miss Kasumi, Kew

Miss Kasumi occupies a corner unit on Kew’s High Street. This place has really tried to cater for everyone, with its beautiful decor, variety of seating choices and vast menu options. We were invited for dinner to try some of their dishes and we certainly weren’t disappointed. The large unit is divided roughly in half…

Review: Maze, Toorak

Maze is one of Toorak’s newest eateries, situated in the hub of Toorak Village. It has possibly one of my favourite cafe logos ever (must be the Mathematician in me, but I think it’s really cool) and a very sleek looking interior. Maze refers to itself as a restaurant and it very much feels like…

Review: The Dessert Kitchen, Little Bourke Street, CBD

One of my favourite things about Melbourne is the abundance of places that specialise in desserts. Given it’s suddenly gone crazy hot in Melbs, we were delighted to be invited to try some of The Dessert Kitchen’s cool sweet dishes. Tucked away in Chinatown, it’s a small, unassuming venue but inside is crisp, modern and…

Review: Rogue District, Brunswick

Set in an old cottage, just off Brunswick’s Sydney Road, Rogue District is probably one of the cutest cafes you’ll see. It’s full of laid-back laughter and great fresh food, giving you options of cosy seating inside, a bright and lively seating area out front, and a smaller more intimate courtyard through the back. We arrived…

Review: Aunt Billie’s, Blackburn

Blackburn’s not a part of the world I visit often, so it was a pleasant change to be invited over that way by Aunt Billie’s to sample some of their breakfast dishes in light of their recent menu change. Aunt Billie’s is clearly popular with locals and saw a steady stream of customers while we…

Review: Lezzet, Elwood

Recently revamped and renovated, Lezzet has returned with a new menu offering fine dining Anatolian cuisine in its unassuming Brighton Road restaurant, and we were invited in to try it! Lezzet sets the balance perfectly for its Elwood clientele offering upmarket surroundings but with a casual feel. The interior is intimate, decorated with many gorgeous…

Review: Straight Six, Flemington

Straight Six is a cool and casual burger joint occupying a corner unit in Flemington – with perfect positioning, near to the train station and the race course you’d be hard pressed to find an excuse not to visit if you’re in this area. The Melbourne Foodie Hub were invited down to feast on their…

Review: Northcote STN

Inspired by the London underground (but much nicer and cleaner), STN (station) is the brainchild of Nolan Taing, working alongside Workshop Brothers’ Joe La. The smooth greys and fresh decor are complimented by quirky patterned seats and a heavily tiled counter which really help inspire flashbacks to your days in London waiting for the tube…
