Lazy Sunday afternoons with kids and cousins

Thank goodness for places like Est 1906 you can have it all – a nice cafe to catch up with friends, smooth coffee and good food, and somewhere where the kids are welcome. A couple of weeks ago we spent a Sunday afternoon hanging out with the cousins in the gorgeous outdoor area at the back of the cafe complete with a sandpit, beanbags and toys for the kids to play with.

We ordered:

– iced coffee, a range of juices
– roasted bone marrow
– chicken burger with sweet potato fries
– roasted bone marrow with sides
– salmon bagel
– kids meals of ham and cheese muffins
and a few more things that I forgot to snap

This was my second visit to Est 1906, both times with at least two or three0 toddlers accompanying us, and it won’t be my last. As more of friends pop out new additions to their families I will definitely be recommending them to this cafe that makes you feel so comfortable and at ease.

Est 1906 is also a great little place to dine without the kiddies as there are so many different seating areas you’re bound to find a space to suit the occassion 🙂

Cousin catch up at new burger joint in Melbourne’s West

New burger joint in Maribyrnong – St Burg’s 
41-45 Edgewater Boulevard, Maribyrnong

We have a friends and family that live all over Melbourne and one thing that brings us all together is of course food! With so many freeways providing easy access from the eastside to the west, we met up with our cousins for burgers at a newly opened burger joint St Burg’s. St Burg’s is located in the high density housing area of Edgewater in Maribyrnong on the ground floor of one of the apartments blocks.

It was last Saturday during lunchtime and we managed to snag one of the high bar tables for the 10 of us! There was a grassy area at the front for the two little toddlers to run around on while we waited for our burgers to arrive.

We ordered:

– the Durger, Australian grass-fed beef patty, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, gherkin relish, Durger mayo and smokey sauce
– the St Shroom, cheese stuffed field mushroom, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, gherkin relish, Durger mayo and smokey sauce (I ordered this one because I was so full from the night before eating way too much meat. The mushroom was huge! It was so saucy and that melted cheese…yesssss!!!)
– a salted caramel milkshake (OMG this was so yummy that Duncs ordered two!)
– Mama Lui’s wingette’s, special fried chicken wingette’s with a side of slaw (Loved the wings, so moreish!)

The Details:

Make sure you order two milkshakes in case you finish your first one before your burgers come! It’s hard to find parking so the easiest thing would be to park near Aldi and just walk down. There are also no toilets – my pregnant sister-in-law had to walk back up the hill into another restaurant that let her use theirs. There’s a great little playground just a few minutes walk from St Burg’s that had the perfect sized playground equipment for our two little ones. They were there for ages running around and playing on the slides and bridges.

For more westside burgers, check out this place next time you’re in the area 🙂

Foodie Fridays – A bite at 8bit

A Bite at 8bit.

Our grey and dreary afternoon last week was totally turned around by our first time at 8bit. Bright colours, awesome tunes and happy staff and customers greeted us as we scrambled from the carpark in the pouring rain. As soon as we saw the menu line up of milkshakes, burgers, hotdogs and cheese and bacon fries we were sold.

We came in just in time to grab a table and just before the evening crowd. Daniel the arcade machine around the back and we loved all the little touches from the window decal to the table number holders. Memories of playing Gradius, California Games, Robocop 2, Alien 3, Mario Bros etc on our NES got me feeling a bit nostalgic as we basically inhaled our meal it was so good!
