It's official. The teeth chattering, foot tingling, freezing Melbourne weather is upon us. No matter how prepared you think you are, it always comes as a bit of a shock. Never fear, there's no need to curl up in your sleeping bag on the couch with a cup of Milo and hibernate, no matter how tempting it might be. Grab your overcoat and beanie and check out some of the places in and around Melbourne below. They're sure to warm the cockles of your heart:

Madame Brussels

If you feel like taking the bull by the horns and actually sitting out in the cold on a rooftop The Order of Melbourne in the place for you. To keep yourself warm they serve spicy mulled wine in delightful teacups.
