Foodie trip to Melbourne

Hi we are a couple from New Zealand who love great food, wine, craft beer and coffee. We are spending a week mid April in Melbourne CBD and would like recommendations of great places to eat and drink. Look forward to your recommendations!

There are countless places that serve great coffee. I personally like places outside the CBD, such as Aunty Peg’s, Proud Mary and any of the Seven Seeds group. Head down Collingwood, Fitzroy or South Melbourne and you can barely go wrong. In the CBD, Dukes is superb, as is Traveller.

Similar scenario with craft beers, so many to choose from. Two Birds is impressive, as is Stomping Ground.

As for food, you have to narrow it down a little. We could be here for weeks

Thanks for the advice.

Foodwise we would love to find an awesome Italian restaurant, a Greek restaurant (was thinking of George Columbaris??? We are big fans of Masterchef so looking for outstanding flavour, consistency and the WOW factor. Also love Asian food we thought all of these would be good in Oz.

For Italian I can recommend DOC Drummond St Carlton (not so much the Lygon St one) and for Asian, Rice Paper Scissors - but be prepared to wait with a drink or two in the bar next door.

For a daytime visit Brunettis in Carlton is a Melbourne institution and worth a look.

If you have facebook, check out the Broadsheet Melbourne page and on Instagram Breakfasts in Melbourne is also great, we have so many great restaurants and cafes it's hard to know where to start.
