Turning Point in Ripponlea has one of the most insta-grammable (not a word, I made it up!) dishes out of all the cafes in Melbourne - the Point of No Return. Of course, I will touch more on this dish further, but I will say it is incredible the amount of creativity that has gone… Continue reading Breakfast at Turning Point, Ripponlea

Brunch at the Espresso Room, Northcote

It combines a normally long sleep in, with just enough time to excuse an eggs benny as an appropriate dish past noon. Once finished it's generally time for another nap, which… Continue reading Brunch at the Espresso Room, Northcote

Hotel Review – Metropol at Crown

I tend to take the whole month of June to celebrate my birthday, and this year is no exception. After the shock of being forced to take out private health insurance to avoid the levy (turning 31 sucks!), I decided we needed to treat ourselves.
