Stay up to date with Melbourne’s best restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops.

  • The Arms is an ode to good old Aussie footy pubs. Mains are approachable, slightly elevated, pub classics. But the snacks and desserts nod to dishes popular throughout the venue’s life, like a riff on apricot chicken and sticky date pudding.

  • Delicate broths and two-week-aged noodles are the specialty here, with styles ranging from asari clam shoyu ramen to A5 Wagyu ramen.

  • This cafe goes back to basics with minimal yet cosy interiors, rustic homestyle cooking, and a community-focused approach to customer service. Order hearty sandwiches, seasonal salads, breakfast pizza and sliced apple pie.
