Start with coffee and sourdough toast at Tivoli Road Bakery before moving onto Burch & Purchese Sweet Studio where it's almost as fun to check out the extravagant celebration cakes as it is to eat a small layered creation yourself. Stroll up retail-rich Chapel Street to buzzy, snacky Ramblr. Browse nearby Prahran Market for local produce, artisan chocolate, fab coffee and the evolving Wilson & Market eatery. Take the back streets to Greville Street, turn left and then right on Chapel Street towards the crush of restaurants and cafes that is Windsor. Hop between hip Japanese Mr Miyagi and casual pan-Asian Hawker Hall before finishing at hidden bar Jungle Boy (it's behind Boston Sub).
