As the year winds down, many take the opportunity to flee Melbourne and forget about the daily grind. For those of us who are sticking around or even paying the city a visit – don’t despair, we’ve made it easy for you to still find your morning long black, post-dinner gelato or lunchtime bagel.

Here’s a list of when some of our old favourites and newly open haunts will be trading this festive season. Summer in the city ain’t so bad after all.
