  • Between Dec 9-12, order through @skipapp at 11am-2pm and get 40% off your food (with the code GETSILLY) Now that’s a smart (and not silly) lunch decision! ⠀

I’ve always visited Workshop Brothers over at Queen Street, and the people there are the friendliest baristas in town! Decided to pop by their cute little branch close to Collins Street.⠀
⠀
This branch mainly caters the takeaway crowd. Got my usually skinny flat white and a ham and cheese jaffle ($7.5). The jaffle was just okay - you could probably recreate this at home, but you pay for the convenience! I finished it all pretty quickly though - loved the crunchy bits at the edges! Coffee was representative of Melbourne standards. What wins you over will always be the service! With the skip app discount, my meal came down to $9 which was quite a deal! ⠀

  • Pretty lucky to live in a citay where the Greek food is simply amazing. The Brunswick branch will be closing at the end of this year.. but I guess you can always go to the Brighton branch to have more of @hellenicrep ! ⠀

What you should order: taramosalata, Cypriot salad, zucchini chips, saganaki!⠀

I came here for my partner’s birthday but it really felt like it was mine because the Greek food was really authentic. It was so good that I kept looking at the kitchen thinking there was a Greek family whipping up all these dishes.

Nothing I ordered here was just “okay”.. really, everything was delicious. My favourite was
1. The white cod roe which went well with the pita bread. So addictive and fishy!
2. The light batter coating all the zucchini chips which made them easy to finish
3. The Cypriot grain salad, which makes you wonder why you can’t make something similar at home - healthy and mixed with delicious yoghurt 
4. The sizzling saganaki was a visual delight and tasted great with the figs! 
5. I washed all of this down with a blueberry G&T which was better than all the other cocktails and beers we ordered
• 
What a winner this place is! My only minor gripe was that the meat was slightly better at Gazi - something about the lamb being more tender. It’s kinda sad that Hellenic Republic will be remodelled to another restaurant at the end of this year.. but that’s life eh?

  • My favourite brunch is actually yumcha, especially at @secretkitchen_au 💰 saving tip: get 25% off with @entertainment_au
Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Review: I won’t be surprised if people say this is the best yumcha in the city. Always make a booking if you are having weekend yumcha at secret kitchen to avoid queueing. You would be given a 1:15 hour slot to have your brunch! Honestly, everything was consistently good here at secret kitchen. Highlights of the meal were: 
1. The Sichuan siumai: so unique that we ordered two baskets of it! My mouth is drooling as I think of it. Not as spicy as the name suggests! 
2. The egg yolk custard buns were more delicious than the pig custard buns because the inner fillings were oozing out ☺️
3. Order the truffle prawn dumpling! It’s unique and hargao will never taste the same again
4. The fried radish cake, fried bean curd with prawn and yam pastry were all good, though probably not as unique as 1-3. 
5. End your meal with egg tarts and mango pudding and I guarantee you would leave stuffed and satisfied 
Writing this review made me hungry again. Best part was, with the 25% off, the meal was about $25pp which was value for the ambience, quality and service here. This goes on my #citaymusteat list !

  • Freshly baked classic 🥐: cooked precisely for 11 minutes. So flaky on the outside and buttery on the inside. So YUM and I dare say the best croissant I’ve had in my life. Have you really visited melbourne if you haven’t had a taste of these babies?

This is a bright and cheerful cafe situated at Malvern. This corner lot establishment benefits from a lot of natural lighting, which adds to the appeal of weekend brunch enthusiasts (like me). The six of us really ordered a spread and everything was beautifully plated. They even went the extra mile of serving matcha green tea with cinnamon and honey. 
As for the dishes, I really preferred the sweet to the savoury dishes for the first time. The waffle special was awesome - the lemon curd and pistachio paired with the passion fruit sauce was a great combo. The moorish baked eggs was a little different - lots of chickpeas and we wished there was more sauce to pair with the delicious toast! The goodness green and middle eastern bowls were healthy, filling and packed with a lot of flavour.
Thanks for having us, we enjoyed the service, ambience and food here! ♥️

Review: Piggy smalls is a cute little store with no indoor seats and a few long tables outside. The store does a roaring trade for the locals - I observed plenty of takeaway orders on a Saturday night! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The process is simple enough: choose your sausage (chorizo, cranzky cheese, beef sausage, hotdog) and choose your toppings 🌭: I won the menu lottery because I picked the Cubano and it was delicious! The pickles + Swiss cheese + cheese sausage combo was unbeatable! the onion rings were also dangerously addictive. The light batter made it really easy to finish. Wish I ordered two!🍗:The peri peri sauce on the fried chicken ribs was a bit too spicy for me so go for another flavour like honey soy if you shy away from spice like me! 
The best part of the meal was the affordable pricing. Hotdogs at $8 are good value! Thanks for the invite ♥️

Overall score: 19/25 or ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Review: why do I love bibelot?
1. The process of purchasing cakes were so seamless, thanks to them offering Apple Pay. Completed the transaction in 5 minutes! If only other cake places caught up with technology... (I have to still read out my debit card numbers to some bakeries) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. They also provide complimentary chocolate plaque with a customised happy birthday message of up to 15 characters. Amazing stuff! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Picking up the cake was also quick and easy. Unfortunately, you would have to carefully place the cake on your lap and hope that it’s not a BUMPY ride. The cake also needs to be refrigerated and taken out about 15 mins before consumption. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We ordered the hazelnut praline crunch. The cream was honestly a bit too much for me, but I loved the macarons and consistent peanut crunch that layered part of the cake. The macarons were still delicious even a day later - I would definitely go back for that!! It was also a struggle for me to eat beyond a slice because it was quite sweet. That probably means these cakes are meant to be shared OR you can have dessert for the next 2 days!

📍Lune croissants @lunecroissants
*
Overall score: 23/25 or ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
in 5 words: most precise and delicious croissants
*
REVIEW OF #LUNELAB: Let me just say upfront the cost of $65pp is equivalent to buying 6 croissants from the store - which you would still enjoy! What Lune Lab offers is:
1. 3 courses of freshly baked pastries - a normal croissant, a savoury one and a dessert croissant. The second and third courses are not staple croissants you can buy at the store⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Unlimited coffee and hot chocolate. Won’t recommend you to go beyond 3 cups of drinks or you would be too full. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. The chance to watch the Lune bakers in action. The prime seats next to the infamous cube gives you the opportunity to watch croissants carefully measured and made. The amount of care and precision put into every croissant makes you appreciate this place even more. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. They allow you to purchase croissants for takeaway without queueing. If you have been to Lunes on a weekend, you would value this option. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. As for the flavour and taste of each course, my favourites was the classic croissant. It was just the perfect buttery croissant, which was freshly cooked precisely for 11 minutes and tasted really good. The savoury course I had (Lunes version of the French Tarte Tatin) wins on flavour, but I was hoping for some meat within the croissant (heard that they made a fish pie as their second course in previous iterations so it’s your luck really). The strawberry Mille fueille looked like a work of art, so much so that I hesitated to cut it up. The varying textures and taste really made the dessert so exciting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So is lune lab worth it? If you have been a lifelong fan of lune and are willing to splash some cash for an occasion, it’s worth going. But don’t be too upset if you couldn’t secure seats - their regular freshly baked croissants are not far behind in terms of flavour.

Overall score: 21/25 or ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Review: plenty of reasons to try this new pizza place if you live at Windsor: 
1. Farro pizza uses 100% organic spelt flour for all their pizzas, bread and pastas. Spelt flour is known to cause less bloat (yes, I googled haha). This means you can have pizzas with slightly less side effects!

2. I can testify that the Quattro formaggi and funghi pizzas were delicious. So cheesy, but as my partner says, there’s no such thing as too much cheese! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. The dishes that left the most lasting memories to my taste buds were the arancini, polenta chips and prosciutto. The arancini was especially amazing - yummy risotto nestled within crispy breadcrumbs

in 5 words: best Melbourne fish and chips ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Review: There is honestly nothing I have ordered here that I didn’t love. Historically, we have always played it safe and went for the chef’s tackle box which came with the best calamari rings, prawns, yummy fish and well-fried chips. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, we decided to be a little extra and ordered the chef’s platter for 2. The portions were really generous and I could easily say that it’s the best money spent. The only downside is that if you order the standard fish and chips PLUS the chef’s platter, you might end up with more fries than you can actually handle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The chef’s platter ($85) had at least five different types of seafood and clearly an indulgent dish. My favourites were the fried anchovies, teriyaki salmon and fresh oysters. The fish burger and tacos were a tad cold by the time I got to them - eating is clearly a game of strategy and I should have prioritised that. Drinks-wise, I really enjoyed the pear cider too - so refreshing and perfect for a summer day. There’s a reason why there is a queue at this place! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Loved @venezianocoffeerichmond so much that I visited this place two days in a row. At a risk of sounding too basic, this place is quite cool! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
📍Veneziano Coffee 
Richmond 
Overall score: 21/25 or ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
What you should order: prawn squid ink croquettes ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Review: I honestly first stumbled upon veneziano in the leafy suburbs of surry hills. The Richmond branch was originally a coffee roasting warehouse but it has since rightfully evolved into a full-fledged cafe place a year ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Coffee was obviously excellent - quite aligned with their tagline of finding coffee that people would talk about. Similar to most places, coffee in a cup does get cold pretty quickly, so I always ask for it to be extra hot to counter that risk. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It really depends on what you order here and to me, the prawn and squid croquette was a clear winner! Pickled cabbage, paired with well-executed croquette was a breath of fresh air to the Melbourne brunch scene. The river street Benedict was also pretty good - crispy potato rosti and fresh smoked salmon. Portions were enough for me, but perhaps a bit too small for a hungry man! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All in all, I love the cafe ambience (large coffee warehouse space where you can watch coffee beans being roasted). Service was also pretty good. It’s been a while since I had a commendable brunch, so I call this a #citaymusteat

This is a bright and cheerful cafe situated at Malvern. This corner lot establishment benefits from a lot of natural lighting, which adds to the appeal of weekend brunch enthusiasts (like me). The six of us really ordered a spread and everything was beautifully plated. They even went the extra mile of serving matcha green tea with cinnamon and honey. 
As for the dishes, I really preferred the sweet to the savoury dishes for the first time. The waffle special was awesome - the lemon curd and pistachio paired with the passion fruit sauce was a great combo. The moorish baked eggs was a little different - lots of chickpeas and we wished there was more sauce to pair with the delicious toast! The goodness green and middle eastern bowls were healthy, filling and packed with a lot of flavour.
Thanks for having us, we enjoyed the service, ambience and food here! ♥️

  • It’s equally great and dangerous that I work a hop, skip and jump away from a popular doughnut joint🍩 🤤

Overall score: 18/25 or ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
in 5 words: good doughnut option in cbd
*
Taste ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Was spoilt for choice and went for the bestseller - the French toast. Other bestsellers were the maple glaze and chocolate biscuit. What I like about the French toast is how easy it is to finish the doughnut. Some doughnuts can be so sickeningly sweet that it has to be shared. However, was hoping for more crunch on the French toast crumbs.
*
Ambience ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - love the doughnut menu display, which made it easy for customers to pick based on ingredients. The store atmosphere was cosy and relaxed - such a contrast to the city hustle outside. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Price ⭐️⭐️⭐️- the doughnuts range between $5.5 and $6.. which are similar to other dessert prices (bubble teas etc.)
*
Presentation ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - the doughnuts looked great, with good choice of colours and flavour combinations. *⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Service ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- service was friendly.

Taste ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - the mushroom dish (with bacon) was a clear winner. The version I had was accompanied with pumpkin purée and truffle, which was a fantastic combo. The combination of maple syrup and cream made the ricotta dish quite rich - if you have a sweet tooth, this is for you! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ambience ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - This place is very popular, especially on a Saturday morning. Congregations of happy families and friends all around. Tables are quite close to each other - I could hear conversations on the next table. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Price ⭐️⭐️⭐️- with bacon, the mushroom dish costs $25 while the ricotta costs $19.5. Quite standard brunch pricing

Presentation ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - the dished were beautifully plated. I’m a happy camper. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Taste ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Order the all American and fondue special sandwich to share. It’s not too salty, very fragrant and when u combine good cheese with the crunch of a well toasted bread..... I am speechless. It is surprisingly filling and oh so delicious! Your idea of cheese sandwich is forever changed after visiting this store. 
Ambience ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - there are seats just outside the stall. It can get chilly because the market is a vast open space. There is something special about grabbing a bite amid all the market hustle and the fruit guy yelling about cheap avocados.
*
Price ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - The cheese sandwich here is not the cheapest at $12-$15. I guess that’s what you pay for good quality cheese. 
Presentation ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - The cheese sandwich just looks delicious. The overflow of cheese is so appealing.. It can be a messy and thirsty meal, but all worth it
*
Service ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Quite happy with the service! They prepare hot sauce/tobasco in case you want to spice up your cheese sandwich.

Taste ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - the menu looked a bit different from zomato. Ordered the ✅urban fritters and the sweet potato, zucchini and corn fritters was spot on! Crunchy, they must have added a bit of curry powder! Paired with yummy salad and coyo. ✅ if you’re feeling hungry, the sweet potato fries were crunchy and well fried! 🆗 the blue heaven bowl was delicious to the last spoonful (love the goji berries!), but I wished that there were no ice cubes in it!

I prefer their soy latte relative to their flat white. The soy milk was just so delicious! I might actually switch from this experience alone 😂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Ambience ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - the restaurant exudes a strong homey feel. They prepared blankets if it’s chilly outside. There’s also a heater which helped! The indoor setting was also beautiful and intimate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Price ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - i thought my urban fritters at $15 was good value. The blue heaven bowl costs slightly more at $20. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Presentation ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - the food looks gorgeous, with vibrant colours and plenty of greens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Service ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ -  even though the system was down, the crew remained friendly and highly apologetic. It didn’t affect our experience at all.

Taste ⭐️⭐️⭐️ - ✅ ordered the French toast. Appreciate the generous servings and how this dessert brunch was not overly sweet. I wish the French toast and bacon were crispier though. I recall a better dessert dish served here in 2015 - the banana & pistachio bread back then was much more impressive
*
✅cauliflower and kale dish was simple, within expectations and came with delicious chorizo. I wished that they experimented more with the dish though. *
Ambience ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - the cafe had standard fittings with ample indoor and outdoor seats.
*
Price ⭐️⭐️⭐️- They have a 10% weekend surcharge, so even after an entertainment 25% discount, we still paid $25 / person. That wasn’t the cheapest brunch we’ve had, but you pay for the location I guess.
*
Presentation ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - Food looked great, the plating was impressive.
*
Service ⭐️⭐️⭐️- It was hard to get someone’s attention and the staff were not the most friendly - maybe because it was a busy day at the cafe!
