Review: Faraday’s Cage, Fitzroy

Faraday’s Cage is hidden away off the main streets of Fitzroy. It still offers that bare brick wall, edgy Fitzroy feel, but in a bright open venue, with a rear courtyard, friendly staff and some amazing food. Until you see the bright umbrellas of the outdoor seating you probably wouldn’t even realise Faraday’s Cage was…

V. Melb, South Yarra

V.melb is South Yarra’s new Vegan eatery. It’s not big – it’s much more a blink and you miss it kind of place, but it definitely packs a punch and probably offers one of the best food variety to square metre ratios in Melbourne. V is really little more than a fridge and a counter. They…

Review: AU79, Abbotsford

Review: The Little Elephant, Highett

The Little Elephant is one of those true, local businesses that I love to visit – just hardworking people, producing some great food. Tucked away just off Highett Road, Little Elephant is a fresh, bright and welcoming brunch venue. I loved how it was on a quiet street, giving for a much more relaxing brunch experience…
