A fantastic warehouse cafe located in South Melbourne. This place is always packed and busy. One of the best French desserts you can find here – serves the finest cakes and pastries. Their all-day breakfast menu is amazing too! Sautéed mushrooms is one of my favourites. Besides good food and mates, you are also able to enjoy it in a cosy and warm courtyard, especially during a sunny day!

Pulled pork sandwich – YUM! Delicious food, with a funky vibe and thumbs up for their coffee. Coffee beans are finely roasted and freshly brewed. So if you are in the CBD looking for coffee, drop by here to grab a perfect-cuppa to kick start your day!

A great little cafe with lovely ambiance and friendly staff. It has won ‘Cafe of the year’ in 2012, awarded by The Sunday Age M Magazine. Everything here is just right, but I must say the French Toast with crispy bacon and maple syrup drizzle is superb!

 I love chorizos – the ones here are too die for! Their food menu are pretty creative. If you are a fan of salmon, try The Russian. A cosy little cafe to start your brunch in the North, so be there early to grab seats. Coffee is not bad as well!

Situated in the south eastern suburb of Malvern. Every dish seems to have its authentic flavours and specialty. I love the poached eggs – cooked perfectly! Decent food and good coffee. Prices are reasonable.

Great music, lovely staff and casual atmosphere. Food is fabulous. I tried ‘The Spaniard’ – served with chorizo in a smoky crushed tomato sauce with poached egg on hash brown topped with roquette. The sauce was amazing and tasty! If I could, I would lick the whole plate. Yes, it was that good.

If you love bagels, this is the place for you! It’s located in the city, pretty convenient to get there. Value for money and great coffee art for you to snapshot and enjoy. Sweet tooth – go for the mixed berry and mascarpone bagel. Craving for savoury? Try Smoked salmon with bagel, dill and cream cheese.

Are you cheeky enough to handle the food? I just discovered this place and it’s an absolute amazing, especially the muffin served with caramelised crispy bacon and poached eggs – YUM! What can I say more? A unique and beautiful decor. A great place to hang out with mates. The coffee is heaven!
