This cafe offers some of the finest views available of the Maribyrnong river. Groups of friends and extended families meet here for brunch (Eggs Benedict, antipasto platters, tapas) or a leisurely lunch (Veal Spezzatino Casserole, Tasmanian Smoked Salmon Roulade). The sheltered terrace, with its heaters is a great place to catch the sun on a chilly day.
Images of the Far East spring to mind when relaxing under Jack Satay Bar's spinning fans and sitting back in the rattan chairs. The menu with spinach and seafood laksa also helps contribute to the distinctive eastern feel. Since 1989, Jack's has been serving the Moonee Ponds area, and doing a good job of it. Jack's delivery car can be seen speeding down the streets taking taste sensations direct to people's doors. However, with unique dishes to sample, Jack's is well worth treating yourself to an in-house visit. Fully licensed.

Beer, live music and great company is all you need to have great an evening at Edinburgh Castle in Melbourne.

Howler is located in the heart of Brunswick. This warehouse-turned-entertainment-venue is the brainchild of owner and designer Brendan Brogan. Exposed industrial beams, artistic lamps, greenery and intimate candle lights contribute to a rustic ambiance. On the menu are globe-spanning craft beer and Asian style tapas. Enjoy your drink in their heated beer garden or head indoors for live gigs by local musicians.
The Cornish Arms is a laid-back bar that makes for an ideal evening spot with friends. You can groove to the cool tunes or be all by yourself at the lounge. Live music and DJ sessions further add to the experience.
Located amongst the Middle Eastern restaurants and Asian groceries of Sydney Road, one of the city's most colorful and multicultural neighborhoods, is this traditional Aussie pub. Resisting the trend that is sweeping through the inner city's drinking establishments, the Brunswick Hotel remains a relaxing place for a cool beer and a game of pool. The lounge offers Sky TV, the cable sports channel, and there is also a beer garden to while away those sunny afternoons. The kitchen serves standard pub fare in the evenings.
Pepper is a café that's trendy without taking itself too seriously. Stainless steel and modern art mix with furniture that could well have come from a salvage yard. Locals congregate at tables under the veranda to tuck into dishes such as Smoked Salmon on Homemade Potato Latkes and Sweetcorn Hotcakes. On three evenings a week, the standard menu gives way to a feast of gourmet thin-crust pizzas. Alcohol is available and, judging by the popularity of its take-away coffee, the café also makes an impressive cuppa.
This cozy café is also a second-hand bookshop with tables tucked between the shelves. Diners can pore over the titles for sale while filling up on cooked breakfasts, a warm drink and healthy lunches (pides, wraps, bagels and smoothies). Literary quotes are chalked onto the black walls and menus are wrapped around the covers of vintage books. Like a favorite book, the atmosphere here is homey and comforting. A scattering of 1950s furniture, a pot-bellied stove and biscuits and slices like Grandma used to bake all make this an inviting place to browse or meet with friends.
