Chotto Motto, Collingwood

The stooges and I are massive fans of Japanese food, in particular gyozas. When we heard that Chotto Motto are serving gyozas, we had to check it out. Located in Collingwood, just off the main road, there’s plenty of free parking around the area if you go to the side streets. Inside the restaurant, it was filled with cool retro decor including a vending machine to get your drinkies.

Flovie Florist Cafe, Carlton

Flovie Florist Cafe is the new baby in Carlton, newly opened for 6 weeks and already there’s a queue on the outside. A place for brunch AND to buy flowers, it’s definitely a new concept in Melbourne and we’re loving it. It’s a very instagrammable cafe where it’s easily accessible, there’s a lot of pros to this place already. We arrived just before 10AM on a Sunday and got a table straight away because if we arrived even 5 minutes later, we would have been lining up outside.

Bun Bun Bakery, Springvale

I’m a Nhu Lan kinda gal when it comes to banh mi thit so when someone says to check out a Vietnamese pork roll joint, my mind instantly goes into using Nhu Lan as the standard. Bun Bun Bakery wasn’t too busy when we got there. Like every other Banh Mi joint, it doesn’t have seating and it’s a quick in and out kinda place.

La Bohemia, Nobel Park

La Bohemia cafe is a little gem hidden away in Nobel Park. It’s small, cute and ran but friendly staff. We ordered our meals the day before (we had that day) so we could eat quickly and get back to the grind after lunch. The food came out quick smart and we were ready to chow down.

Little Byrd, Ascot Vale

On the busy street of Union Road in Ascot Vale sits a humble cafe with a relaxed atmosphere and interior design. Little Byrd doesn’t have a massive sign out front but you know which one it is with locals sitting outside and inside laughing with their cup of coffe/tea/juice/chocolate. I thought it’ll be a great daddy daughter day and showed daddy bear the ropes of a Melbourne brunch.

Daddy bear got the long macchiato and holy smokes it was good. It was strong, it was full bodied AND it definitely had a huge punch to it and I can guarantee you that it’ll knock you straight into next week.

Long Macchiato – $4

Biggie Smalls, Windsor

A night out in town means a night of snacking! We stumbled our way towards Biggie Smalls in Windsor at 11pm and there was hardly anyone there. We got in and was served real quick. With hip hop playing in the background, the food turned up oh so quick and we were famished!

Arbor Cafe, Mulgrave

Lunch time again AND it’s time to check out the rest of Nexus court. Arbor cafe was also packed with people checking in on their lunch break and they have a sit down menu OR have a quick feed with scrumptious sandwiches or wraps. We stumbled in, order at the front and sat our booties down in anticipation of our food.
