Miss Marmalade, Brunswick

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 12, 2013

I have so much backlog it’s getting quite ridiculous. I have posts dating back a whole year that I still haven’t blogged about and I’m determined to get through them. One of these is actually a cafe that I really liked and have wanted to blog about for the longest time, I’m just not sure [...]


The Farm Cafe at Collingwood Children’s Farm, Abbotsford

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on December 1, 2013

Summer is finally upon us! Even though it felt like winter just not too long ago. Whenever a trickle of sunshine sneaks out behind those thick clouds, everyone comes out of their shells and come to the shop for an icy cold beer. It’s amazing what the sunshine brings – smiles! But for me, there’s [...]


Piatella Cafe, Glen Waverley

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on November 20, 2013

Most of you who have been to Glen Waverley would probably agree that it doesn’t have a shortage of cafes, or Asian restaurants for that matter. I certainly didn’t expect this quaint hairdresser turned cafe to become the centre of the dining scene on Kingsway. It’s probably the most packed eatery you’d find at any [...]


The Grain Store, Melbourne

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on August 22, 2013

It seems just like yesterday that I started my shop and now it’s been more than half a year. How fast time flies. It has also been far too long since I stayed away from the blog but now that year end work is almost over, I can start to concentrate a bit of my [...]


Lip Cafe, Ivanhoe

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on June 7, 2013

The days are getting shorter and darkness is upon us a lot earlier now. By 5pm the Sun starts to hide and I can just tell that the customers are rushing home before darkness arrives. The cold morning air and gusts of wind that come through the door is proof that Winter is well and [...]


Chez Dre (revisited), South Melbourne

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 8, 2013

I don’t think I’ve ever posted a revisit to any restaurant or cafe, even if I do go there a lot. I just feel like there’s generally not much more I can offer in terms of new information or photos to my readers, that is, unless if there’s a significant change to what we had [...]


Aura Cafe, Templestowe

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on May 3, 2013

When I started my bottle shop in the north, I was worried that I will no longer be able to eat brunch like I used to. For one, there’s no time (or more like I’m too lazy to get up early…). The more important part was there just doesn’t seem to be as many hip [...]


Mart 130, Middle Park

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on February 18, 2013

To my dear readers, did you all have a good Valentine’s Day? I did in a way. Although there was no romantic dinner, lavish presents or even being relaxing at all, I did spend it with my beloved (not that I have a choice) and kept myself busy in the shop. I even set up [...]


Kinfolk, Melbourne CBD – a cafe with a good cause

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on February 4, 2013

How many cafes do you know that can make you reminisce about your childhood? How many cafes do you know that are run by volunteers and donate money to charitable causes? How many cafes can do both AND make delicious coffees and healthy bites? I only know one and that’s Kinfolk on Bourke St.


Jam For Joe Cafe, Blackburn

by Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake on January 20, 2013

I had a sudden revelation recently. I think I’ve run out of new cafes to visit in my area! Oh what a dilemma. It doesn’t help that I live in the outer suburbs where there’s not all that many shops to begin with. At times like this I really wish I lived in or near [...]
