Le Clec

Was recommended by a friend who had a great time here. They mentioned their matcha latte was one of the best, so it got me considering a visit! I picked a girls brunch day to try Le Clec, walked in from a small entrance, was then led to middle dining area at the back then…

Dead Man Espresso

While it’s easy to find, it was difficult to find a parking on a Sunday afternoon. Been here once few years back and revisited just recently, I think it has maintained its quality of service and food. Full house by 2PM. Luckily we arrived just before 2PM and didn’t need to wait. I ordered a…

Abacus All Day

Kuu Cafe + Japanese Kitchen

Who would have thought Kuu Cafe is a hidden gem at the corner of Park St, South Melbourne. Not located where the hustle and bustle South Melbourne Market is, you’ll have to wonder out to find this cosy Japanese kitchen nestled in a house. Went on a Sunday afternoon, and had to wait for 10…

Higher Ground

Not quite a cafe and not quite a restaurant. Higher Ground has been operating for more than 2 years. And there’s still a long line to have brunch? Stunning monochromatic interior with mezzanine floor with splashes of greenery at every level. Interior gets a 5/5, what about the food and drinks? The wait was 45…

Wide Open Road

Set in a warehouse like other roasters but in Brunswick. Convenient by tram and close to Barkly Square shopping centre. It was very easy to find a parking on a Sunday morning… Went in at around 10am, it was already busy with sunday – brunchers… We had to wait for about 15 minutes, so we…

Cafe Blush

A Calia project is just downstairs below Calia at Emporium. I thought their menu would also be japanese inspired. But it’s something different. What we enjoy, is the beetroot latte. It doesn’t sound appealing but they’ve done it to my liking! light beetroot aftertaste, but not losing the milkiness of lattes. I’m not a big…
