• The Dolly team's next-door nook is a masterclass in paninis and toasties. At night, it flips into a cosy wine bar with clever dishes and a tight edit of stirred cocktails. Grab fancy pantry items from the retail section on your way out.

  • A “new-age deli” and coffee shop by the Whistle & Flute crew with a sun-sprayed glasshouse, just down the road from its sibling.

  • No doughnuts or bacon to be found here.

  • An eccentric, approachable cafe.

  • The plant-centric pop-up so good, it progressed to permanence.

  • Day through night, this lush alfresco space has you covered.

  • A reliable all-rounder that brings inner-city cool to the suburbs.


  • Stop by this slick bar, by the team behind Lune, for crab soldiers, buttermilk-fried quail and a grilled cheese sandwich with mushroom and Vegemite. Plus, an approachable wine list favouring local producers.

  • A tiny wine bar which feels like home.


  • This handsome brick building looks the kind of quaint, well-maintained place you’d expect to find a good Devonshire tea. But no – since 1975 it’s been peddling plants, gardening advice, furniture and homewares, with an emphasis on higher-end heritage brands such as William Morris and Burgon & Ball.

  • A charming, tightly curated retail space for small and independent makers.

  • Come for the paint, stay for the culture.
