The Corner Shop

October 29, 2010


While I can easily name more than one gem in the funky Yarraville village, The Corner Shop (9 Ballarat Street, Yarraville VIC) is coming up tops for its creativity, feel, and bang for buck. I’ve been there for lunch and dinner, and have walked out impressed on both occasions. Like most of the other village hangouts, the place […]

Yogurt House

October 25, 2010


The days are getting longer and the temperatures are getting warmer, so it’s fairly natural that I’m starting to notice the new chilled sweets bars opening up around Melbourne.

Anyhow, Chef Lagenda (16 Pin Oak Cresent, Flemington VIC) is a new-ish kid on the block, situated […]

What can be a more enticing way to get out of the cold streets than ducking into a warming little chocolate bar? And Melbourne is really spoilt for choice in terms of chocolate experiences, hello to Max Brenners, Koko Black, San Churros et al. In the last few years, new chocolate bars have been popping up […]
