I spent the weekend gallivanting around the city and found some amazing places to eat and drink:
Chuckle Park Bar & Café – CBD
We stumbled across this laneway jaunt in search of a good coffee, and are so glad we did! The coffee was delicious and as the afternoon faded into evening, we decided to stay for some Friday night drinks. I tried their mulled cider – which was absolutely delicious, but very sweet! Definitely try it if you’re a fan of traditional mulled wine. A very popular spot, reasonably priced, with great atmosphere.
Sea Salt – Degraves lane CBD
We stopped in for lunch after wandering the busy laneways around the city. I had the fish of the day with one of the house salads which was reasonably priced at $11. Great range of fresh fish and seafood as well as a sushi bar out the front, which offers super cheap, large rolls for $2.50. The flavours are great, the beer is cheap ($5 for a little creatures) and the portion sizes are good. I would definitely come back and recommend trying!
95 Espresso – St Kilda
We decided to have breakfast at 95 Espresso after a big night out and boy did it hit the spot. I had the eggs benedict- which was one of the best I’ve ever had. Portion size was really big (which is unusual for an eggs bennie) and oh so tasty! Coffee was also really nice. I was so stoked we stumbled across this place, which seemed a popular choice for many. All of the meals I saw coming out of the kitchen looked great. Defiantly go here if you are in the area.
The Wooden Elk – South Melbourne
We stumbled across this South Melbourne café as we were staying nearby, but am very glad we did. I love the décor and they make a really great coffee. The restaurant serves a range or both paleo and non-paleo meals, which are reasonably priced, good portion sizes and very tasty. I had the eggs benedict – and loved the paleo hollandaise that it comes with. Not usually one to praise the paleo way, I can delicately make an exception for this place!
