Best Nourish Bowl @ The Little Woodpecker Cafe

Continuing my cafe hunting around in the eastern ‘burbs, I recently came across The Little Woodpecker Cafe in Blackburn North. The cafe, although hidden away in a quiet suburban street, is always busy every time I have visited. One thing that stood out about this cafe was the creative name of their dishes. If someone…

Kyoto Cafe @ Eastland Ringwood

There are many things I love about eating at Kyoto Cafe. Over the last few months, I have been at least five times and I would still go back for more. Located at Eastland Town Square, the restaurant is very spacious, with outdoor and two-storey indoor seating. I like sitting outside because the lighting inside…

Colorful Brunch @ Three Monkeys Place

Found another local goodie on the east side of town! Three Monkeys Place is a small but cosy cafe in the busy Jackson Court area just 10 min from Doncaster Shopping Center. There’s a huge car park in front of the cafe so that is another bonus of eating here.The number of items on their…

Winter Delights @ Baba Sus

Last week I went to Baba Sus again to try out their new winter menu. What a delight it was!  As per tradition, we could not go to Baba Sus without ordering their signature Hong Kong Egg Waffle. Read my earlier review of Baba Sus at “Hong Kong Egg Waffles” In addition to the waffles,…

Ice Cream Quirks @ Aqua S

In the foodie world, anything that is quirky tends to become a massive hit. For example, when milkshakes evolved into freakshakes, a spam load of photos appeared on Instagram of these mammoth sized drinks. What’s another trending hit? If you ask me, I would say the quirky blue ice creams from Aqua S.

A Hidden Gem @ Miss Peppercorn

I love it when I discover a new trendy cafe in the local area. That excitement of, “omg I need to try it out”, “omg i need to take photos” rushes over me. I feel like a little kid being given a lollypop. This week’s cafe rave is a place called Miss Peppercorn located in Blackburn South (8 Lawrence Street, just off Canterbury Road). Visit them at: facebook twitter instagram

Miss Peppercorn is one of my latest hang out spots for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and afternoon tea! There are many things I love about this cafe. First, is the atmosphere. Miss Peppercorn gives off a warm at-home feeling. When the weather is cold, the staff have blankets dangling on chairs for customers to use. I really like the simplistic white & blue decor they use. The table ornaments as well as the general decor of the cafe is very cute and makes for good photography material. What I like in particular are the white shelves stacked with jam jars, pot plants and other miscellaneous items. It feels really homely and very trendy.

Cafe life @ Mr Hendricks

Being an avid Instagramer (visit me here) like myself,  I like to keep up to date with all the cool roadtrip places and hip cafes around. For example,  I saw many people post about Mr Hendricks, so of course, I had to go and try it out for myself. Rarely do I go out into…

Lunch @ Innocent Bystander

For those of you who don’t know what Innocent Bystander is, it is a winemaker, with a reputation for delivering some of Yarra Valley’s most over-performing and versatile wines to high class restaurants and fine wine stores worldwide. Well, I simply went for the food. Simple as that. I am a photographer, foodie and blogger, so of course I had to make the visit to one of Yarra Valley’s most famous Cellar Doors for lunch.

Flavours of Asia @ Mr Kitchen

Mr Kitchen is a fast food franchise outlet that has been around for some time now. Unlike other Asian fast food places that have grown in popularity over a short period of time (eg. Rice-workshop, Hanaichi, Dessert Story etc…), Mr Kitchen is more a silent achiever. If you do a google search for it, very…

Hong Kong Egg Waffles @Baba Sus

After hearing about how good the Hong Kong Egg Waffles at Baba Sus are, of course I had to go and check it out for myself. Baba Sus is located right next to Burwood train station, away from the busy Toorak road and surrounded by peaceful suburban streets and houses. The inside of the cafe is warm and relaxed, with pretty dangling lights hanging over the counter.

Food Galore @Providence Cafe

Over the weekend, I attended a food photography workshop at Providence Cafe, just outside the CBD, in Carlton North. We were taught by foodie and passionate photographer, Matt Craike (check out his Instagram at @eating.melbourne).  Matt shared his tips and tricks to getting the best food photo. He touched on 3 major components: lighting, composition,…

Food Adventures @ Beechworth Bakery

Whenever I go to Heasville, I always stop by at Beechworth Bakery for a hot chocolate and some sweet-treats to take home. There’s always something very comforting and warm about the place. You get your regular chairs, tables, and booth seats, but you also get sofas and low tables by the fireplace, making it feel…
