We all have that friend that has chosen to go vegan or paleo at the moment which can make it difficult when deciding on where to have lunch... Well, Street Organics in Malvern could be the answer. I had received some more vouchers from Zomato which included Street Organics. They cater for those on paleo, vegan, FODMAP and/or gluten-free diets. Now this may not be relevant to you... but the food is really delightful so everyone is happy! They also have some meat dishes for those that are feeling carnivorous. Afterwards, you can browse products to take home and make your own healthy, organic meals. They also do raw vegan high teas ($69 per person) upstairs, which is fun and healthy at the same time!

When I have a bayside house-sitting job, I love hanging out in Sandringham as it feels like a small beachside town rather than a suburb of Melbourne. Now I have a really cool café to go to for breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, etc. This year Bluff Town opened in Sandringham. If you like The Resident in Ashburton, then you will really love Bluff Town... The food at Bluff Town is fabulous and the Spring Menu has some very tempting items. The Bluff Town Lunchbox is a novel idea where you receive a bun filled with goodies, a salad, and a sweet for just $15. A narrow, corner site is where you will find Bluff Town which stretches back to some very inviting booths. The concrete elements of the interior are softened by pale timber, greenery, and interesting artwork.

Bonjour my lovely readers! This weekend Paris to Provence returns to the magnificent Como House and Gardens for its 6th year... Well, I might be a bit biased as I volunteer at Como every week! Anyway, Paris to Provence is Melbourne’s ultimate French festival where over three days the National Trust's iconic Como House is turned into a lively French village.

Lilydale is suddenly becoming the foodie capital of the outer east. Inner city cafés are opening up all over the place where you can get your single origin coffee and your Instagram drool-worthy eats. First you had The Lilydale General tucked away in the industrial area and then Round Bird Can’t Fly appeared on Main Street. Now they have some serious competition... Hutch & Co has a very enticing menu that should please your inner hipster. Compared to the other two cafés, their menu has more interesting options and causes less damage on the hip pocket. The space is a lot bigger than Round Bird and if you want somewhere more private the back room is a great option. Mesh partitions the interior into cosier rooms whilst pale timber, low hanging lighting and greenery soften the industrial look.
