If there ever was a hill to die on, it would be the Melbourne food scene. And what a delicious hill. Melbourne cafe culture is some of the best in the world - for that, you can thank the Italian community and their love of coffee - and extremely competitive, to boot. The best meal of the day in Melbourne is arguably brunch, which Melburnians have elevated into an art form: from ridiculously photogenic superfood platters heaving with berries, grains, and seeds; to experiments with international flavours (2017 was the year of Korean-flavoured everything), to the hangover-friendly classic comforts of smashed avo on toast. I spent 3 weeks attempting to eat my way across the city and the suburbs, and although I hardly made a dent in the culinary offerings of Melbourne (I did say it was a hill to happily die on...), I can confidently recommend these 8 Brunch Spots in Melbourne that you must try the next time you are in town.

There’s only one thing that could potentially kill a relationship faster than a trip to IKEA* and that’s travelling with your beloved. Make it a day trip with an arduous 6 hour-round trip-drive to a much beloved tourist hotspot on the weekend, starring the immovable object (my boyfriend, the crowds) vs. the unstoppable force (me and my ardent desire to nail the perfect souvenir shot), and you’ve got a recipe for a nuclear breakup. But then again, I like a challenge and we love having adventures together, which is why we spent a Saturday driving from Melbourne along the Great Ocean Road to see the Twelve Apostles. Of course, everyone else also got the memo, which made getting that perfect “picture to remember” a challenge - but if there ever was a time to apply the only useful skill I learnt from 3 years at Central St. Martin’s, this would be it. Read on to learn how to overcome the challenge of crowds at famous travel destinations by blending two photographs in Photoshop to create the perfect scene.
 

*Unless, of course, you go in there with the following strategy: Do all the actual browsing online, make a shopping list and print it out to bring to IKEA. When you and your other half arrive, head first to the cafe for meatballs to stave of any hanger (that’s right, hunger + anger pangs). Bypass the black hole that is the Showroom and go straight to Marketplace to pick the small items. Then use the in-store picking service (this is where the shopping list comes in handy - just hand it to the staff and let them do the work) and arrange for next-day delivery AND assembly. Reward yourself with a dollar hotdog that tastes vaguely like plastic.You’re welcome.
