Melbournians love lots of things. Complaining about the weather whilst refusing to live anywhere else. Laneways. Drinking in laneways. Drinking coffee…sometimes in laneways but suburbia will do. Drinking coffee and eating brunch, especially on Sundays, even if you have to queue for a table. And now deciding where to go is so much easier! The Age Cheap Eats guide always has a few options but now in stock is the dedicated Age Good Cafe Guide by Matt Holden. At only $10 you can’t run out of places to while away a morning, or afternoon, or entire day if you feel like it! I’d recommend starting with award winners and the three ‘cup’ cafes, listed at the front. I certainly agree with the awards for Best Cafe; Auction Rooms in North Melbourne and Best Coffee going to Seven Seeds in Carlton. Popular spots Apte (2 cups), Gypsy Hideout (2 cups) and Red Door Corner Store also get a mention along with many local gems worth a visit on your day off. Next on my list is Wide Open Road in Brunswick, winner of Best New Cafe and from the people behind A Minor Place, I am expecting good things. In store now. The Age Good Shopping Guide, also $10 is coming soon.
