Sustainability, simplicity and even transportability are the guiding principles of this Footscray cafe. On the menu you'll find Asian-inflected classic brunch dishes, with a strong roster of single origin coffees to choose from to drink.
This tiny pie shop has an ex-Supernormal chef in the kitchen making lasagne pies, chicken-parma sausage rolls, vegan pies and more, best followed with a hot Milo or an old-school vanilla slice. If you can’t decide, grab a party-pie tasting paddle.
Head up the ridiculously colourful stairwell at this good-time bar (by a co-founder of the Moon and Milton Wine Shop) for a very drinkable "mistake" rosé; frozen Margs and passionfruit sours. For snacks, try one of the Reubens or a spicy Sichuan eggplant sanga.
This surreal bar pays homage to the world's great cocktails and their inventors. It's by Pie Thief's Aaron Donato and cocktail-book author Chad Parkhill; they've created a tiny, 25-seat speakeasy and natural wine spot, slinging eclectic wines, highly original cocktails and more.
