When the triplets take you out for tea, they don’t half arse it all all. They promised me tea with cheese (what the??) and of course they delivered when they took us into Town Tea in Chinatown. With great decor and friendly staff, get ready for some cheesiness in your life.

The Creative couple were in town and we decided to take them to Herd Bar & Cafe for lunch. We made a booking on a Sunday but it wasn’t really busy at all so we didn’t really need to make a booking. Nonetheless, we went inside and the staff were super duper friendly and the decor was just suave and very intimate. We were shown to our table and my gosh the options looked oh so delish.
Braving the 42 degrees Melbourne weather we made our way to Two Fat Monks for a little brunch date. Two Fat Monks is conveniently located opposite Fairfield station with quite a few parking. As you enter the cafe, boy oh boy will you be greeted by friendly staff. We were shown to our table and boy were we hungry.
The girlies decided to have a brunch date and took us to their fav brunch place – Humble Rays. Since we were visiting on a Sunday, there were plenty of free parking around (so don’t worry about parking yo!) and we managed to nab a table for 6 at 11:30AM. It does get busy so make sure you’ll be willing to wait! The interior was vibrant and calming and of course had little ‘rays’ of sunshine decorated throughout. The staff were super duper friendly and made us feel oh so comfortable from what we ordered to the quantity ordered.
With having a new job near Christmas means Christmas lunches are due and our lunch was at Vanilla in Oakleigh. On a Tuesday lunch, my gosh, finding parking was hectic so I’d recommend you park where Coles is. Now, back to the restaurant, it was buzzing like mad and there were so many people and so many things going on. Vanilla is a ginormous restaurant with a lounge downstairs and a restaurant upstairs. Once you walk in, you’ll be greeted with the sweets cabinet by the counter.
The stooges were sleeping over and of course we had to brunch in the Yarra Valley or Coldstream. I made a booking for Coombe, the Melba Estate and boy, was it beautiful. We got into the carpark and Coombe was hidden away behind these huge hedges. Once you step through the hedges, it was MAGNIFICENT! It was serene, it was gorgeous and best of all, it was classy!
Before I started my new job, I thought I’ll take mumsy bear out for a brunch date since we never really do that often. I thought I should take her to Yarraville since that’s where all the cool kids were at. We got to The Corner Shop and she absolutely loved it. The staff were friendly, the decor was just very Melburnian and she felt oh so comfy in there which was the most important part. We were seated and was handed a menu to have a flick through to decide what we were going to devour!
One of the stooges have been raving on and on about Brother Nancy and when I finally had a day free, I decided to meet up Mr Angry for some brunch. It didn’t look amazing in the front but it was quite cute once you step inside. When you step in, you’ll be greeted by the friendly staff and it’s quite cosy inside as well so be prepared to be saying hey to the next table!
When the girlies came over for a sleepover, I decided to find a local brunch spot and after a while, I saw Bekendales has been around for 9 or so years with raving reviews. So I bundled them all into the car and dashed to the cafe to for our little brunch date. It was quite cute inside, not the usual Melbourne cafes but cute nonetheless. There were outdoor seatings for those who enjoy a little fresh air and it’s not too loud either. We walked in, got a table and started to flick through the menu.
Since I had a few weeks off before I start my new job (Wooohooo!) so I decided to catch up with the Creative couple for some coffee (because we’re fancy YO!). They took me to Jasper’s Coffee in Highpoint because well, I don’t really go to coffee places since I don’t drink coffee. Anywho, we walked in, found a booth and decided what we all wanted.
