3Lives
76 Chestnut Street, Cremorne VIC 3121
In one of the many back streets of Richmond, this cafe could almost be mistaken for another house front. I was recently in the area, and decided to check it out, given the good reviews.

The interior of 3Lives is clean and funky, with metal stools and exposed light bulbs. Given the good weather, however, we opted to sit outside.

I ordered the Teriyaki Tofu salad, and it was brought out to me in less than 10 minutes. It was also $8, which is one of the cheapest cafe meals I've ever eaten. And it was damn good. The tofu was crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, with a sticky sauce that was fantastic. The salad was just your standard greens, but it had a sesame dressing that made it fantastic.

Seek this place out - cheap, tasty and cool, definitely worth the 5 minute walk from Swan Street.
Quality Excellent

here is a list of things I have done today to avoid study:

- 2K run
- 8K bike ride
- yoga class
- watch 3 episodes of QI
- make donuts

so at least if I fail my degree I'll be a flexible genius with a face covered in cinnamon sugar

The Oxford Dictionary helpfully shows 'World English' and parochial 'US' dialect, think Sony/Swisse need to revisit their default locale settings in Microsoft Word.

Anyway, what is a colour run???

HD Cafe Bar & Grille
19 Royton Street, Burwood East VIC 3151
I was a little hesitant when it was suggested that we meet here for dinner - despite some good reviews, HD Bar & Grille seemed to be in the middle of no where, with streetview showing just a line of abandoned shops.

However, this place proved me wrong. We were quickly shown to our reserved table, and given a copy of the extensive menu. Although the service was a little abrupt, we were well looked after and we didn't wait long for our food at all. The bruschetta was delicious, with a thick, sweet balsamic vinegar. The potato wedges came with avocado and a REAL sweet chilli sauce, which was just perfect. I also sampled my sister's gnocchi with avocado and chicken sauce, which was really tasty.

This place was quiet and intimate, and service was attentive but somewhat abrupt. The only thing I found a bit off-putting was the fact that the owner's son kept walking in and out of the kitchen wearing sports clothes. It just seemed odd considering the ambience of the rest of the restaurant. I would definitely come here again.
Quality Very Good

An old video, but a really good one. Richard Florida is such as great speaker.

Also, this is where 2 weeks of solid study gets me. Watching videos on YouTube.

Pancakes instead of an actual dinner? Done deal.

The Pancake Parlour Restaurants
550 Doncaster Road, Doncaster VIC 3108
For me, The Pancake Parlour is more about nostalgia than food. From school plays to dates, this place has always been the go-to celebratory meal.

Having said that, the food is pretty good. The portions are small for what you pay ($19 for 2 pancakes is a bit much) but they always taste darn good. The Alice in Wonderland theme of the place is fun, and for the most part the place is clean and neat.

Although we had to inform someone that we were ready to order, our waitress was quite helpful and even offered to split the bill prior to our meal. Although there was one issue once the food came out, the manager came over to apologise and did everything in her power to correct the situation.

I had the 'IT', 2 pancakes with banana and walnuts. The pancakes were great and fluffy and the banana was sweet and fresh. The maple syrup they provide on the tables is good - not just that saccharine sweet artificial stuff you get in bulk. We also shared the cottage chips, which were chunky but a bit too oily for my taste. I still finished half of them though!

Ultimately, the food is good but expensive. For kids and celebrations it's a great option, especially with the part room area, but for a casual meal there's probably better places to eat.

Introduction

I want to be Haley. I want to live in California. I want to marry Joel McHale. And I still think that Fred's death was the most heartbreaking moment of television ever.

However, I am Alex S. I live in Melbourne. I have not yet met Joel McHale. But Fred's death will always suck, no matter how many times I watch it.

I love food, running, TV and technology. Have I mentioned food? Yeah, I really like food.

I make a damn good cheesecake.

Another addition to the Snow Pony and Friends of Mine family, Porgie could be seen as the older, more mature sibling. Indeed, the uncrowded interior and table clothes set it apart from Snow Pony, and this is reflected by the clientele. The menu is much the same as the other two - on this day I ordered the chickpea salad. We managed to score a perfect table outside in the sun, making the short wait for our food even more enjoyable. The salad was great - the chickpeas made it hearty and filling, and the fetta gave the perfect tartness to the dish. The portion was decent and relatively inexpensive. I love all 3 of these cafes, not only for their food but also for their atmosphere. The staff are always friendly and attentive and the place is always neat. Be careful to get there early on weekends - there will be a wait!

Axil Roasters looks massive from the outside, and the inside is much the same. It has a warehouse vibe, and despite its massive size, is surprisingly intimate and quiet. We managed to get a table for a weekday lunch without any problems. I ordered the chicken and pumpkin salad, which came with walnuts, marscarpone and pear. Despite the cafe not being overly busy, we still waited a long time for our food - almost 20 minutes. Having said this, the service was otherwise good - fast, polite and attentive. The salad itself was great, and provided a very, very good serve - I got a whole chicken breast buried under a ton of pumpkin. Really tasty and fresh. I also sampled the smashed avocado, which was mixed with fetta and mint - it was fantastic. This place is a little expensive for a casual lunch, but the food is great. Will definitely be back.

I always seek out a Salsa's in a food court, and I was glad when I found one at Doncaster Shopping town. The chips here are actually to die for, but I was feeling unusually healthy and went for a 'fresh mex bowl' instead. The place is really clean, and the staff are friendly enough. My order, which was to take away, looked pretty impressive - a giant bowl of veggies and meat. I was pretty impressed by the freshness of the food, and was only let down by the thick layer of rice at the bottom (not really that flavourful). Good for food court food, but nothing amazing. Go with the chips next time!

Red Robyn is seriously easy to miss - tucked away in a row of ugly shops, this place is certainly a diamond in the rough. Hipster, yes, but not so much that I felt out of place. The big wooden tables and chairs were comfy and welcoming, and couches down the back looked seriously comfy. Sure, it's got a bit of an edge because of the allergy friendly menu, but this place certainly rejects the 'holier than thou' attitude of some other places in Camberwell. We ordered the Veggie Stack with Egg and the Chicken Fritters. YUM. Simple, tasty, reasonably priced. The sweet potato cake at the bottom of my stack was the best part - like deep-fried potato mash. They also use Syndicate Coffee, which (apart from being organic) is pretty damn good. On a side note - they also have free WiFi. I will be back soon.
