They say there are two kinds of people in the word: those that add potato chips to their sandwiches and those that don’t. I haven’t added crisps to a sandwich since I was in primary school but I still know how heavenly those first few bites are. And it looks like a lot of other people do too because an Irish pop-up cafe just opened serving up only chip sandwiches.
There’s no shame in eating cereal for dinner, contrary to what some people might say. In fact, if given the choice between a home cooked meal and a bowl of cereal, I’d have a hard time choosing. And the staff at London’s Cereal Killer Cafe probably know the feeling. Located in Brick Lane, this cafe serves only cereal from 7am til 10pm.
Cereal doesn’t just have to be for mornings. Now that twin brothers Gary and Alan Keery have opened ‘Cereal Killer Café’ in Brick Lane, London, Londoners can have cereal at any time of day! With a selection of over 60 types of cereal from around the world, some popular flavours include Cap’n Crunch and Lucky […]
Newcastle. It’s that biggish town above Sydney, right? As Australia’s seventh largest city, Newcastle is making a name for itself as one of Australia’s best kept secrets. On the travel site, Lonely Planet, for instance, it was named one of the best 10 places in the world to visit. It’s little wonder, then, that one of the Lost At E Minor offices is located right in the heart of it.
Cats, cats and more cats. If you’re having a cup of joe in Melbourne and think you’re hallucinating way too many cats prancing about and stretching their paws out at the cafe, know that your coffee hasn’t been spiked. You’re probably just at Cat Cafe Melbourne in Queen Street, the first of its kind in the Australian city.
Combining cafe lattes with art, Cafe Didu is a one-of-a-kind place you’ve just got to visit while traveling through Moscow. Not only does this place serve up the usual club sandwiches, herring and flavored hookah, but make yourself comfy because Cafe Didu is also known for its quirky and colorful plasticine wall. Mold until your […]
Imagine being stuck in the beautiful (ha) industrial area of Alexandria on an early weekend morning having not yet had breakfast. I bet you’re feeling pretty miserable right now. I was too, until, like an oasis in the desert, I stumbled upon The Grounds. What is The Grounds, I hear you say? Well, it may […]
Jai Pyne spent a good seven years as frontman of (arguably) one of Australia’s best indie bands – The Paper Scissors. Now that band is done and dusted, he’s allowing another passion to shine through. We caught up with Jai to talk all about his newish Sydney cafe Fleetwood Macchiato, located in inner-city Erskineville, and his love affair with everyone’s favourite pick me up.
Leaves. Love hearts. Smiley faces. I’m easily impressed when it comes to creative baristas etching cute decorations on top of my morning latte. But Taiwanese coffee shop, Let’s Café, certainly takes the cake by printing their customers’ own photos onto ordered coffees. It’s all thanks to an elite coffee machine that uses cocoa powder, latte […]
On a very cold and rainy Melbourne afternoon, after getting caught in the drizzle, I was hanging for a nice strong coffee and toasty warm bagel, so I pulled out my trusty iPhone and found the perfect place: Manchester Press. The converted industrial space is tucked away in Rankins Lane (like any good Melbourne institution) […]
Some of you may have seen this ad in The Age, as well as in bus and tram stops throughout Melbourne a couple of months ago. Founded by eco-artist Joost Bakker, SILO By Joost has been featured in The Age and Epicure a few times now. Read more here.
This is where I get my daily caffeine fix in North Melbourne. Set up by a couple of designers turned cafe owners, they make, in my opinion, the best coffee in Melbourne without the coffee snobbery and they also have an impressive menu to boot.
Until recently I didn’t realize you could become a loyalist to your barista. If you’ve discovered one good coffee roaster, where’s the need to discover another, right? Wrong. I now know what it feels like to “cheat” on your barista. Corduroy is much more than your typical hole-in-the-wall espresso joint. Nestled on Foster street in […]
Ponyfish Island is hidden under the Elizabeth Street Footbridge in Melbourne and surrounded by the muddy water of the Yarra River. The island is a great place to grab a bite to eat, drink a coffee or sink a few beers. A collaboration between Grant Smillie, Jerome Borazio and Andrew Mackinnon, Ponyfish Island has an […]
A soot black shophouse basking in the sun just looks glorious. Especially when it also has an open black and white wooden porch smack in front of it. That’s how I found myself lured into Artistry, a cafe-bar-restaurant, part art space in Singapore that recently set up base at the first floor of said shophouse. According to co-owner Prashant Somosundram, the porch, massive communal table and stools were upcycled and custom-built with wood salvaged from replica kampong huts that were torn down in Geylang Serai’s Malay Village. The textures are great.
