Of Truffle Fries, Waffles & Coffee

Can anything be more overdone than these 3 food items in Singapore? Visit any cafe or casual restaurant and you’re sure to find at least 1 of these on the menu. Haha I guess it’s the Singaporean culture – 1 thing works out and the rest follow suit… So you can guess I’ve had my… Continue reading Of Truffle Fries, Waffles & Coffee

Nora

If I were to describe Nora in 1 word, it would be ‘abstract’. Nora is not quite your average Melburnian cafe with poached eggs, smashed avocado, toast or usual espressos and let me show you why… This cafe first came on my radar when Andrew chanced upon it while walking home from uni. He tried a coffee… Continue reading Nora

Judging from the hits for the last post, I think a number of you enjoyed looking through Noel’s photos so here’s another collaboration post! As the title suggests, this time round, we hit up Brunswick, a hippy suburb known for their vintage shops and cool cafes. Two Little Pigs Charcuterie & Grind The main purpose… Continue reading Pigging Out at Brunswick

Brunching in Balaclava

Two things – firstly, it was an overdue appointment with Daimz and Ms HH who had promised to bring me to 1 of their favourite brunch haunts, and secondly, it was a first-time collaboration with Noel whose photography skills I very much admire. So for once, I didn’t have to put on my thinking cap of where to… Continue reading Brunching in Balaclava

Breakfast Thieves / Babka

We seem to be getting into a comfortable groove for our brunch ventures – source a good place out during the week, round up the usual brunch partners, get to the cafe by 11ish, get caffeinated and fed, look for something sweet after, and then head off for our church youth group. Seems to be… Continue reading Breakfast Thieves / Babka

Proud Mary / Chez Dré

The title says it all: we got up to our usual brunch mischief one fine Saturday morning, and finished it off with a sweet treat, hitting up 2 spots at once! So let’s get into the details shall we? At our last brunch, we were discussing our favourite brunch spots and ‘Proud Mary‘ came up.… Continue reading Proud Mary / Chez Dré

Merchants Guild

Sometimes, we don’t have the luxury of Saturday mornings to go for the more popular brunch places and have a full-out brunch venture. During such times, we can only afford a simple brunch in a convenient location. And that is how we arrived at Merchants Guild. Basically, this was the situation: we wanted to do a later… Continue reading Merchants Guild

Di Bella Coffee Roasting Warehouse

In the midst of many cafe giants, let me tell you something about Di Bella Coffee Roasting Warehouse: it is Melbourne’s best kept secret. Tucked away in a quiet corner of North Melbourne, this cafe has never come on my radar. But time and again, I would hear Daimz mention about this place. I just didn’t think too much… Continue reading Di Bella Coffee Roasting Warehouse

Fandango

So all’s been quiet on the brunching scene lately for me, as I’ve been occupied with church activities on Saturday mornings and my usual brunch partners have been busy as well… Ah, such are the responsibilities of life! But one cloudy Saturday morning, Andrew, Ms CC, Ms JQ and I managed to gather for some brunch action… Continue reading Fandango

Taking the Visitors Out

It’s a head-scratching situation that most of us are familiar with – when visitors come, where should you take them out to eat? Whether you are in Melbourne or elsewhere, you would always want the visitors to sample the best of the local delights, and at the same time, be able to tour around the… Continue reading Taking the Visitors Out
