Gelocchio Greed

GELOCCHIO: A petite, brand new gelateria on Lygon Street, Gelocchio is a branch from its founding store in Cairns - famous for its wide range of authentic, 100% natural gelato flavours, ranging from classic chocolates/cookies and cream to refreshing, tropical fruits such as dragonfruit and mandarin. And this store is no exception. The interior decor … Continue reading Gelocchio Greed

Koko Krazy

KOKO BLACK LYGON STREET: On a quite, Friday afternoon, it was spacious enough to accommodate 10 hungry, eager students. We ordered the Belgian Spoil tasting platter, the dessert degustation for two, and their famous Classic Belgian Iced Chocolate... and left with a feeling of having had enough chocolate for a lifetime. The drink was definitely the … Continue reading Koko Krazy

Zesty Zumbo

ZUMBO PATISSERIE, SOUTH YARRA: A spur of the moment decision and hankering for chocolatey dessert goodness led us to this South Yarra patisserie, featuring desserts from the renowned Croquembouche mastermind, Adriano Zumbo. There is quite a select range of cakes and only 2/3 tables and chairs in the glass cabinet, takeaway cake section. Being a Monday … Continue reading Zesty Zumbo

Brekky Buffet Belly

NO 35: Perched at the top of the Sofitel on Collins street, No. 35 offers a buffet or continental breakfast option, as well as seasonal lunch and dinner menus. We arrived here bright and early at 7am, ready to eat our way through all the brekky pastries, smoothies and omelettes, just to name a few. The ambiance … Continue reading Brekky Buffet Belly

Rustica Canteen

RUSTICA CANTEEN, MELBOURNE CBD: Down a windy alleyway away from the bustling streets of La Trobe and Melbourne Central, Rustica Canteen is a rather-undiscovered little gem compared to the hyped up other inner city cafes. If you couldn't already tell by the title, this is definitely one of my favourite brunch places so far, with … Continue reading Rustica Canteen

Melting Macaroons

LA BELLE MIETTE: Melbourne is dotted with macaroon stores everywhere, and La Belle Miette is arguably one of the most popular, competing neck and neck with Ladurée (renowned macaroon patisserie from France). The one we went to is right next to La Petite Crêperie down the famous little stretch that is Hardware Lane. For a French … Continue reading Melting Macaroons

R.I.P. Diet Days

BURGERLOVE, SOUTH MELBOURNE: Time for some urbex! Burger Love is tucked away in a little alleyway in South Melbourne, a short, yet windy path from the 96 tram stop. Previously called Cafe 51, Burger Love is a must-go place for those wanting a cheap, satisfying junk food fix guaranteed with high enough levels of fat … Continue reading R.I.P. Diet Days

Melbourne Michelin

CALIA: A Japanese restaurant with a deceptively non-Japanese name in Emporium. It has a simple, yet fresh menu designed by Micheline chef Francisco Javier Araya - so the most Michelin experience I've had so far, and without a hefty price tag. I loved the interior! It was very modern and chic, with a light wooden palette and a … Continue reading Melbourne Michelin

Gelato Joy pt. 2

GELATO MESSINA, WINDSOR: Time for the second stop of our Gelato Joy-ful Journey to Gelato Messina in Windsor on Chapel Street. Maybe we went at an off-peak time, but Messina was quite quiet and we were the only customers. The set out is similar to a normal icecream store with the variety of flavours on display … Continue reading Gelato Joy pt. 2
