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.
Work lunchies mean a new place to explore. 57 Cafe Bar Restaurant located on the outside of the Pinewood Shopping Centre and there’s plenty of parking around so it’s not too hectic. The staff were super friendly and we were a large group so we ordered the day before so the food could come out quick smart. Unfortunately, it came out so quite slow which was a shame. Now, back to the food.
There’s a new guy in town and they’re serving up brunch, lunch and coffees – so I’m basically trying to say a cafe! Located 8 minutes from Chaddy, Stocksville sits just off the main road tucked away. Not so tucked away that no one knows about it because it definitely gets busy. Stylish, friendly and welcoming, Stocksville sure knows how to make you feel comfy and wanting to stay.
New job meant new places to eat and we made a booking at Madeline’s at Jells which is located right inside Jells Park by the lake. It’s a very cosy venue and the staff were quite friendly. We were shown to our table and BAM we started ordering because, well, everyone was super duper hungry.
Since I haven’t had a date with mumsy bear in a while, I decided that a brunch date was in order. I didn’t want her to travel too far so we decided to head to Mama Bear in Flemington for some mummy daughter time. There’s a few parking spots in the back streets and there is a tram that goes near Mama Bear so transportation isn’t an issue. Mama Bear is located in a warehouse looking venue and the staff are super friendly and efficient. We made a reservation online and immediately got a table.
Any time is brunch time and when we had a free weekend, we checked out Breakfast Thieves in Fitzroy. It looked a little warehouse-y but
Latte – $4
Laurent Bakery are known for their cakes and hot chocolates so when we were at Doncaster Westfield, we just HAD to pop by and get our sweets fix. Located in the shopping centre, there’s seating inside the store and outside and it does get busy! So if you can find a table, definitely do not give it up.
The hot chocolate here is smooth, rich and chocolaty.
I’ve been hearing rave reviews for Bob’s Your Uncle Cafe located in a Jackson Court in Doncaster East so when the Travelling couple suggested a catch up, I suggested the cafe. There’s plenty of parking in the carparks so aim for those instead of trying to park in front of the cafe. Oh, the cafe does get busy so there might be a wait and I only realised that they also do bookings as well so try that if you don’t want to wait. Anywho, I digress. Back to the cafe, the staff were super friendly and very inviting and we managed to snag a table by the back.
After a hard day at work, we needed to stop for lunch and when we passed a seafood place in Rosebud, we just had to stop by. Walking in we were greeted by friendly staff and had their attention the whole time. It wasn’t super busy on a Thursday but that just means we’ll get our food way quicker!
Work needed us to go down to sorrento and of course we stopped by Blairgowrie cafe for a pit stop because, well, coffee. There’s plenty of parking around so that’s not a problem and the cafe is a very community orientated eatery (how awesome is that?) and the staff are uber lovely and friendly. There’s plenty of food options and there’s even free wifi (I know this info can be super important to some people) and has an amazeballs library towards the back of the cafe.
