Being only an hour away from Adelaide, Melbourne has always been somewhere I’ve loved to visit to get away and re-charge, eat amazing food and have a few (or more!) cocktails. Here are some of my favourite spots to eat
34 Degraves Street, Melbourne VIC 3000
The one place that we knew we had to visit while away was Degraves Street. It’s more of laneway than a street, but it’s jampacked full of little eateries with one long passsage way down the middle to eat and enjoy. We chose Mockturtle as their menu looked amazing and the coffee smelt incredible….and neither disappointed! Definitely a must visit, but the whole laneway looks good as well.
Open 7am – 4pm daily
190 High St, Windsor VIC 3181
I first came across Bistro Morgan on the TV show Shark Tank and when he said that he’d opened up a shop in Melbourne, I knew I had to visit! The donuts are breathtaking! All of them have some sort of filling, with some having the syringes so you can control just how much you have. My favourite was the Gaytime Crunch which is the Brioche bun, Chocolate Glaze, Honeycomb crunch and Salted Caramel syringe. The best part is that airport security was happy for me to take the syringes through as they were food!
Open 10am – 5pm
ST. ALI COFFEE ROASTERS
12 Yarra Place, South Melbourne VIC 3205
Small PSA: If the Barista at your hotel recommends somewhere to go, YOU GO THERE!! I’ll talk more about our amazing Barista – Ebony – later, but this was one place that she recommended for us to go and it didn’t disappoint. They are incredibly popular, so expect a possible wait, but it’s definitely worth it. They originally started as coffee roasters, then took over a warehouse to turn it into an eatery as well.
Open 7am – 6pm daily
