Explore hidden gems in Melbourne. While we’re pretty certain you’d be familiar with Collingwood, Richmond and Northcote, the inner-city suburb of Abbotsford is one of Melbourne’s hidden gems. Home to a strong art community (the Abbotsford Convent, for example), galleries, converted factories and plenty of cool bars, cafes and restaurants, Melbourne’s Abbotsford has got a lot going for it. With the Yarra running along its border, and Fitzroy a stone’s throw away, starting or ending your day in Melbourne with a meal in Abbotsford’s restaurants or cafes is one of the best decisions you’ll make. But with so many choices, your best bet to make things that little bit easier is to book a table with Quandoo so you can just focus on getting your appetite ready.
