Brumby’s Bakery in the Albert Park shopping village has taken street art to a new level.
This is a unique way to enter their shop – a couple of hops, a couple of jumps and you are there.
It is a way for the kids to entertain themselves after they have finished their Baby-Chino at a neighbouring [...]

The Local Pub is a sports pub and on the evening we were there they had the Rugby world cup on every screen. There are a lot of screens. This is a plus if you are there to watch sport. We had a smallish screen on the wall beside our table. The Rugby Game [...]

My first visit to Shakarhari, the vegetarian restaurant at 201/203 Faraday Street in Carlton, was a few years ago.
I was with a vegetarian friend who was visiting from overseas and I wanted to give her a experience of fine dining –something more than the average vegetarian fare which often seems to include beans or Dahl. [...]

These hamburgers are so good that I would drive across town for one. But it is not just the hamburger that appeals.
It is the the experience of watching the team at Andrews cooking them. They make it into an art form.
Order your burger from the blackboard menu then hang around and watch. There are a [...]

This stunning piece of urban art is a work by Frank Malerba.
You can see it yourself as you head along Cecil Street away from the South Melbourne Market.

I had not intended to go to the Cricket Club Hotel in fact I have never thought of going to the Cricket Club Hotel. It is one of those Melbourne places that have never entered my consciousness.
As a by-product of local advertising I found myself there on a cold winter night because a friend reads [...]

The head office of a company I worked for was in Park Street, South Melbourne, across the road from Chimmys.
Chimmys was the place to grab a coffee before racing to a meeting or a training course. The Head Office moved and I forgot about Chimmys until recently when I was in Park Street and wanted [...]

It’s an old Pub on the corner of Victoria and Page Streets that like so many pubs in the area has taken on a new lease of life. It has taken on [...]
