Melbourne's best coffee? Lady Melbourne is going on a quest to find out!

Melbourne + Coffee = Love!

Melbourne loves coffee, fashion and footy, in whatever order suits your preferred pursuit. With that in mind, I thought it was high time Lady Melbourne started to explore where to get the best coffee in this fair city of ours, given that I drink enough of it and really, shouldn’t Lady M know these things?

Taste by Appointment

Imagine an invitation to dinner where guests are asked to explore their preferences for sweet, sour, bitter, salt or umami tastes. There will only be 12 of you, and all of the food has been created for the evening by the chefs at Melbourne’s hatted Saint Crispin.

Curious?

Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa

Imagine taking a bath drawn straight from the mineral rich earth that is Hepburn Springs: forty-five minutes of private bathing in 100% mineral water, with bath salts infused with turmeric and rosemary.

I’d not dined at The Lakehouse before, so when the invitation came my way it was a most definite ‘yes please!’

Bohemian Luxe

A couple of weeks back I had the pleasure of a weekend away in the well being region of Victoria, the Daylesford and Macedon ranges. It was a complete back-to-nature experience so I packed light and took comfortable clothes in natural fibres with a little bit of bohemian luxe thrown into the mix.

Take an Alternative Walking Tour of Melbourne!

How well do you know your home city? Ever considered taking a walking tour?

I like to think I know all there is to know about shopping in Melbourne, but it was with great delight that I discovered a few gems on a recent Alternative Walking Tour of Melbourne.
