I am constantly on the lookout for new and exciting things to do in and around Melbourne. I am passionate about good food and cooking

Eating into your past
I step into what once was a vintage radio repair shop, now turned funky cafe and wine bar, located across from Malvern Station.

I am welcomed by a well-spoken waiter and I ask if I could have a table seated near the fireplace to warm my hands. It was one of Melbourne's infamous cold and wet wintery days. 'Sure' the waiter replied, seated me down to a table and placed a menu in front of me.

Taking in my surrounds, I noticed the signs of yesteryear, The beautifully designed antique windows on the buildings facade, the suitcases and radios paying homage to the shop's previous owner. There is also a vintage replica cart out the front of the shop hosting croissants, muffins and other desirable sweets.
A quick look through the menu and I immediately knew what I wanted, a caramelised onion and cheese toastie, which would warm the insides of my tummy, while the outside of me was warmed nicely by the fireplace

A sign above my table read that there was a happy hour between 3-6pm with an array of alcoholic drinks for $10.

While munching on my toastie and gulping down my coffee, I spotted a quick dress change by the waiter who was now wearing a black vest and pants and a white shirt, a noticeable difference from the denim worn minutes before. The tables too, whilst minutes ago were bare, met the afternoon dress code.

White tablecloths were whipped out and were accessorised with a warm lit candle. The morning cafe had now evolved into a classy little wine bar, offering baked brie and cheese platters. While I was satisfied with my toastie, I knew I would be back for happy hour and more cheese.
