Flemington, known for the Melbourne Cup and being super close to Melbourne Zoo, they’re also popping up as a great foodie area too. Pacinos, an Italian family restaurant, known for their pizzas and friendly service is located smack bang in the middle the busy road Epsom Road. Mumsy bear and daddy bear were excited to not have to travel far in the search for a good feed. Plenty of parking in front of the venue and if it’s full, there’s a shopping centre with more parking. The venue is very spacious and feels very homely and cosy. The staff were super attentive and will immediately make you feel welcome once you step your foot in the door.
What to do when you’ve got a free day? Brunch of course! Not wanting to go too far we headed to Phat Milk with the girlies for our brunch date.

We sat down, relaxed, and flicked through the menu. The staff was so patient while we decided what to get.
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

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.
