“BEST COFFEE!! If you're going with two people, order a hot coffee and then order a cold coffee (iced coffee). Taste both and be blown away. Be sure to buy a bag to take home. You will have withdrawals! ”

“Great restaurant and bar just a street away - there's the front bar, dining hall and there's a grungy upstairs bar as well. Definitely go for the Captain's Burger!”

Pizza Place
$$
“One of the best pizzas around. Quirky hidden gem only the locals know about, away from the touristy Lygon Street. Fresh and authentic. If you want to eat pizzas, we could not recommend this place enough. But for pastas, head to Lygon Street. It's right beside a park so you may even want to get takeaway pizza and eat at the park instead. Expect to spend between $18-35 per person and it's usually crowded if you go at peak dinner time.”

Italian Restaurant
$$
“Walk down Brunswick Road to Lygon St, and take the tram towards the city to Carlton. Great food, atmosphere, staff and the prices are reasonable. It is worth the short trip. The older Italian restaurant strip is also found here, a little further down the road. I'm not so keen on the commercial nature of this strip, but it is a piece of classic Melbourne street restaurant life that is worth sampling.”
