Food & wine journeys

Land in Melbourne and discover a city obsessed with the good life. From cutting edge cuisine made from the freshest local produce to rich coffee, inspired cocktails and cool climate wines – Melbourne has it all. Choose from high rise degustation, hip cafes, rustic winery restaurants and a plethora of international cuisines on offer – from spicy Asian and Latin, classic European and progressive Japanese to North American 'dude food' and contemporary Australian.

Kick start your day
It's no secret Melbourne's first love is coffee but breakfast comes a close second. Find skilled baristas at every turn serving up a dizzying array of caffeinated delights. Learn the difference between a pour over, siphon and cold press and then stay for a bite. Get a glimpse of Fitzroy fashion along with a great feed at Bird Man Eating or take it up a notch for some breakfast fine dining at Cumulus Inc.

Top to bottom
Mix 'n' match is Melbourne's culinary theme of the moment with local chefs having some fun with their menus. Check out some of the new and exciting combinations at local hotspots like Coda's French and Vietnamese hybrid.

If you're just after a meal you won't forget, Melbourne's got you covered. Indulge with dinner in the clouds at Vue de Monde, be amazed by Attica's imaginative creations and relax amid the urban cool of Cutler and Co.

On a budget? No problem. Enjoy a wicked feast for a few bob at a night market, fill up on tapas at Naked for Satan or hit Chinatown for a dose of HuTong's famous Xiao Long Bao dumplings.

In the mood
Surrounded by wine regions on every side, Melbourne has plenty to excite those who enjoy a tipple. Pull up to cellar doors in the Yarra Valley or Mornington Peninsula, both within an hour's drive of the city. Take it slow or take a tour and sample cool climate whites, prosseco and a range of renowned reds.

In the mood to celebrate? Join the happy throng and be a part of the fun, frivolity and flavours of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival in March.
