Jay’s top picks from around Melbourne

  1. Corn fritters at Woven Café in Yarraville – best breakfast spot in the West
  2. High End designer bargains at South Wharf DFO Shopping Centre
  3. An extensive list of cocktails at Eau De Vie – a 1920s inspired intimate bar that is hidden away in a laneway in CBD Melbourne.  If you are with a group of friends, I recommend the flowing bowl, designed to share, it will knock your socks off!
  4. By far, the BEST coffee in my opinion in Melbourne, at Mon Amour in Albert Park.  A cute European style café, with exceptional coffee, delicious breakfast and a lovely wine list.
  5. The American BBQ scene in Melbourne has really taken off, and my favourite will always be Meat Maiden – the beef brisket from the smoker is the pick!
  6. You can’t beat an Acai Bowl at Heal.Thy.Self. Co in Yarraville.
  7. A nice drive down the Mornington Peninsula to Main Street, Mornington is where I love to find some stand out pieces for the home.  With door to door home wares stores, you will find something to adore.
  8. For some seriously good Thai, I head to Yim Yams in Yarraville, where I have found the best Massaman Curry in the world!
  9. I’m a health nut, so for my smoothie fix, I head to Organic Cube in Williamstown – the double shot coffee smoothie is the pick!
  10. For all my European gourmet needs, like a good home made relish, tasty cheeses, salami, hams and olives, my local deli Altona Fresh is unbeatable!
