Lux Foundry, Brunswick

Lux Foundry, known for their brunches and coffees and always super busy in Brunswick. The venue itself is large warehouse space and it looks oh so rustic. It’s been a few years since I was here last and I’ve always had an itching to revisit. This time around I brought Mr D and we found plenty of parking around the corner and it was free too (SCORE!).

Club Colombia Cafe, Melbourne

Since visiting South America, I’ve grown to South American cuisines and when I heard there’s a Colombian restaurant in town, it was definitely on my list to go to because I’ve never had Colombian food before. Located in the CBD and having only opened for 3 months or so sits Club Colombia. It doesn’t look much from the outside but once you step inside, it was vibrant, it was friendly and with super friendly and welcoming staff.

Located next to a school sits a little cafe on the corner called Darling St Espresso. There’s ample of parking so you shouldn’t fret if you drop by here. Outside it looks quite ordinary but inside it’s real cosy with friendly staff. Walking in we could smell freshly made coffee and it smells so damn good.

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

A25 Pizzeria is located on the corner of Hardware Lane and Lonsdale Street and it’s a cool jazzy looking place. We walked in and was welcomed instantly and we knew that this was going to be a good night.

Izakaya Kuuraku, Melbourne

Mr D and I absolutely adore Japanese cuisine, we can’t get enough of it. We’ve been eyeing Izakaya Kuuraku but never had the chance to try it, until now…BOOM! Walking in, it felt more like a bar with seats – music pumping and heaps of people having after work drinkies. We were lucky enough to check out the omakase menu which means you leave it up to the chef to decide what you’re going to get. We tucked in and let our tummies enjoy the food.

Tipico, Windsor

There’s a new Italian joint in Windsor that’s just opened up and inside it’s so chic with very friendly staff. There’s plenty of parking around and if there’s one door but everyone seems to walk past and miss it. Anywho, back to Tipico, we were seated and then our little eyes scanned the menu began our comfort eating.

Rock Sugar, South Yarra

On Malvern Road in South Yarra sits a new Thai restaurant that pumps 90s R&B and pop music with neon lights on the inside and outside of the restaurant. Inside is a casual setting which reminds me of Thailand (it’s the neon lights I say!) and the staff are so welcoming. Plenty of seats, plenty of drinkies and of course plenty of food!
