Melbourne has some of the best food in Australia, and so during my trip last year there was no shortage of delicious meals. Here is an overview of some of my favourite places.
Bowery to Williamsburg
10 Oliver Lane, Melbourne CBD
This is a NYC style diner that offers a range of American inspired meals. They also do bagels if you are looking for something to go.
3/62 Rose Street Fitzroy
This place has some of the best coffee I have ever had, and the food was awesome too. The outdoor shipping container patio provides a lovely setting for your brunch.
The Pancake Parlour
While not the fanciest of places, the Pancake Parlour is a novelty for us as there are not any in WA. The pancakes are always warm and filling which is what you need for a day of adventuring.
Urban Alley Brewpub
Star Circus Docklands
I wrote about this place in my post about Melbourne Bars and Breweries, and while it is a great place for a drink it is also has a tasty pizza menu too. Their hawaiian pizzas are made with shredded ham which is the best way to make them.
Belles Hot Chicken
147 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne CBD
Another American inspired diner, this place sells hot chicken and sides like mac n cheese and coleslaw. They also do crinkle cut chips, yum!
The Vegie Bar
380 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy
This Vegetarian and Vegan restaurant offers extremely tasty meals even if you aren’t on a plant based diet. I liked that they offer brown rice too as most places stick with white rice. If you feel like dessert you can pop next door for dairy free ice-cream at Girls and Boys.
The Meatball & Wine Bar
135 Flinders Ln, Melbourne CBD
We walked past this place during the day and I saw a table with this delicious crusty garlic bread and I thought we had to eat here! I ordered spagetti and meatballs and when it arrived the garlic bread was not what I had seen earlier. Then my husbands order came out with the herb bread and that was what looked delicious. If you eat here make sure to ask for herb not garlic! They also have an amazing selection of desserts.
Level 1, 79 Bourke Street, Melbourne CBD
This place is a little confusing to get to, as it is up a set of stairs and behind a poorly marked door, but it is worth the hunt to eat here. Fancy Hanks offers the most delicious brisket, as well as mouthwatering sides like cornbread and roasted broccoli.
The Duke of Wellington
146 Flinders Street, Melbourne CBD
This unassuming pub was close to our hotel so we ate here on our last night, not expecting anything special, but the meals were super yummy. It is closeby to Federation Square so you can pop in here after a day of exploring.
