My Melbourne Must-Eats 2016

What Places Make My Melbourne Must-Eats 2016?

Melbourne!! Where do I even start! The city blew me away last weekend with the most incredible food, coffee and sweet treats – as well as the wonderful event by Colour and Coconuts. Here are my fave cafes and restaurants right now – you simply must try.


SMAK Food House

6 Daly St, South Yarra


We were so lucky to be a 2 min walk from this wholefood heaven. They had a beautiful all day brekky menu but we stuck to lunch where you could choose your protein and add a variety of salads. The smoked hickory blackened salmon and roasted beetroot falafel (with an activated charcoal hummus!) – yum! With sides of chargrilled broccoli and edamame with chilli, garlic and toasted almond flakes as well as a spiced cauliflower salad with farro, spinach, walnuts and cranberries – could it be more #jshealth approved??


Mr Miyagi

99 Chapel St, Windsor


Wow. This is the coolest, most trendy Japanese fusion restaurant. Always busy so try and get there early for a table – otherwise there is a gorgeous bar out the back with some divine cocktails. We had the most incredible salmon belly tacos with japanese mayo, crispy sushi rice and spicy napa cabbage. We also tried their miso eggplant rice paper rolls, tempura broccoli with salted ricotta and wagyu brisket folded in betel leaf with a satay dressing. Not to mention dessert… The ‘Snickers Licker’ with a frozen snickers parfait, salted peanut caramel, almond nougat, caramel ice cream, dark chocolate – there’s nothing wrong with indulgence in healthy moderation!



Market Lane Coffee

Shop 13, Prahran Market 163 Commercial Road (Elizabeth Street entrance), South Yarra


Best coffee in Melbs. And right next door to a gorgeous food market.



Patch Cafe

36 Bendigo St, Richmond

Paleo cafe in Richmond where we had brekky with the lovely Laura Henshaw and Steph Claire Smith (you can read her day on a plate here) of Keep it Cleaner. Really clean, healthy menu where you could build your own brekky from scratch with a bunch of delish things; cauliflower toast, sweet potato rosti, wilted kale – heaven! We opted for the Breakfast Salad with a poached eggie and cauli toast.



Fourth Chapter

385 High St, Prahran


The most beautiful space filled with light in Prahran. The breakfast menu looked another level – acai bowls with peanut butter and coyo… Passionfruit hotcakes with caramelised macadamias and pineapple coconut ice cream… Must return. We tried ‘the Bowl’ with brown rice, pumpkin, cabbage, kale, avo, golden hummus and a peanut dressing as well as some yummy zucchini noodles with chicken and cashews. Muffins also looked so yum – these were hazelnut, goji berry and pineapple!IMG_3653


Tall Timber

60 Commercial Rd, Prahran IMG_3673

A Melby classic. We enjoyed poached eggies with dukkah, sautéed greens, goats cheese and sourdough and a cauliflower salad with sweet potato and tahini hummus, pomegranate, kale, nuts and seeds. Simple, healthy flavours done well.



Happy Place by Lola Berry

South Melbourne Market, Shop 56, 117 Cecil Street, South Melbourne


Our last stop before heading back to Syd was Lola Berry’s newly opened Happy Place! They do a range of juices, smoothies, acai bowls and raw treats in the cutest spot in South Melbourne – the Salted Caramel smoothie was absolutely heavenly!!


And lastly, my other two favourite foodie spots are Chin Chin and Supernormal – both in the city and both incredible modern Asian!

Where are your favourite cafés in Melbs?? I’d love to know for next time!!
