Bushwa & Hooey, Level 1, 361 Little Bourke St, Melbourne 3000 VIC

Bushwa & Hooey has a very simple, whimsical feel to it. After being complimented on my headpiece by the warm easy going staff, I order my (organic, fair trade) soy latte and am told to take a seat.

I scan the room and decide upon an inviting cushioned, wicker chair at a table for two by the side wall. The longer I sit sipping on my delicious coffee, listening to Angus and Julia Stone's latest album waft effortlessly through the room, the more decor detail I notice. From the flamboyantly coloured, detailed cushion pattern, to the wallpapered feature wall. The miss-matching furniture, to the sweet pieces of string holding cards attached with wooden pegs in the window. The ill-aligned 'clump' of photo frames on one wall to the fake leaved vines winding over walls and down hanging lights. The old terrace detail to the small grass covered rabbits and spherical white lanterns in the window. This cafe's details encapsulated many pieces I have admired over the years and had hoped to one day incorporate into my own home. My own vision of a warm home laid out in front of me.

General menu items of most cafes with simple creative twists, in generously large, fulfilling portions, that make them memorable. Main meals (breakfast and lunch) $6.50-$19. Coffee from $3.00.

Absolutely drawn in by its' inviting atmosphere and eclectic decor, I promptly returned the next day for breakfast, with my boyfriend in tow. The food was simple, but absolutely delightful. Large fulfilling portions, with perfectly poached eggs inclusive! The general menu of most cafes with simple creative twists, such as, juicy grated apple over my muesli, that made them meals to remember. What a divine, relaxing place to stumble across in the middle of such a fast-paced city.
